What a feeling . . . .

I actually finished this one last night, but just getting around to posting it. This one is similar to Emsley's - which is one of my fav-O-rite designs!


Speaking of Emsley - who doesn't love a baby in some leg warmers! Have you ever seen somebody cuter???


I had these on under her pants. I'm always afraid her legs are cold when her little jeans ride up her legs while I'm holding her - and it has been frigid around here!


I had a blue pair when I was in the first grade - I wore them to school - with my "jazz shoes" - did anyone else have jazz shoes?? I was cool - really cool! I also wore them during dance class with my leotard. Again, I was really cool. But here is my question - why was it cool to wear leg warmers during ballet and tap?? Did our legs get cold while dancing?? I mean - I sure don't remember them getting cold - but possibly. Didn't home-girl in Flashdance not wear her leg warmers?? And let me tell you, she doesn't look very cold.



{You can thank me later for this song playing in your head for the next 24 hours!}

Just so you know how cool I was - I had this soundtrack . . . . . on cassette . . . . . and I played it so much it warped.

And Purple Rain, too!

You're right, there's just something about a little one in leg warmers...too cute! My little one LOVES leg warmers and arm warmers. We get a lot of crazy looks with some of her "funky" outfits (we live in South Mississippi where we're often the last to catch on to fashion trends), but she doesn't care...Leg warmers rock!

Oh Kim Wheeler...you kill me! Now that is what I'm talking about some baby leg warmers! Where in the world did you find those?
Em is getting so big....

Okay Ki, did you see my post about this VERY TOPIC a few months ago??? Awesome--she looks so adorable. And now I see that the reason Ella's don't fit her is because I'm not supposed to be putting them up over her chunky monkey thighs! LOL!

You are so funny! YES!! We totally wore leg warmers because Flashdance was so COOL. I love Emsley's little leg warmers. She is too cute!

HI there, I was wondering if you had an etsy shop? I'd like to see how much it would be to have a small canvas with either the name Reese or just the letter R in pink and chocolate. Please e-mail me and let me know if you are available to do something like that.

I love the little rolls above those leg warmers. Your new pictures with your new camera are great. I scroll through the picures first then read the words-I'm addicted to pictures I guess.

Paige said...

Love that painting.. And I wish I could wear warmers on my legs and look that cute.

Have a great weekend!

Tina said...

My tape warped too. Both of them. Love the leg warmers! Too cute!

Leigh Ann said...

You are cracking me up with your Purple Rain. I never would have picked you as a Prince kind of girl. Ha! Loving those leg warmers but loving those little legs more! SO cute!

Kim said...

She is way too adorable in those leg warmers! And I love Courtney's painting... I'm just assuming that is mine! You always do great work. I needed to smile today & have thought several time today about Em's picture in your previous post and have just smiled/cracked up. Thank you!

I love that style! So jealous of your talent! How do you get your lines so straight???? Love those legwarmers, but hoping they stay in style just for kids, not for adults!
