Little Pink Tennies

Little Pink Tennies – 2.5″ x 3.5″ Watercolor & Sharpie ATC

I fell in love with these shoes!  Susan (surob) posted them at WetCanvas last weekend. ( Well…. not exactly these shoes.  They were pink and white.)   If you’ve been following me for a while, you may have seen my 24 ATC shoe series I did for an exchange.  They were so fun!!  After I looked at this one on my monitor, all I could see was big blue olives!  :D

About William Butler Yeats

Irish author William Butler Yeats, known for his mysticism and Celtic imagery, won a Nobel Prize for his plays but ultimately achieved more renown as a poet. He was born in Dublin in 1865. Co-founder of the Abbey Theater, he served as its resident playwright and worked with actress Maude Gonne, who inspired the romantic longing expressed in many poems. He married at age 52 and co-wrote A Vision with his wife, a book with occult roots that explores the mythology in his poetry. He died in 1939.
