Get your shoe fix at KILLER HEELS!

If you are near Manchester, New Hampshire, stop in at the Currier Museum of Art and get your shoe fix at their latest special exhibit: Killer Heels-The Art of the High-Heeled Shoe. I went this past week and it was FABULOUS!! Some of the shoes are pretty tame (not many, though!) and some are confusing (I still can't figure out how one would even put on one particular shoe in the show). Many I want to own and a few just made my jaw drop (spikes? animal hooves? pointe shoes with a 7" heel? YIPES!!).

The only thing that could have made it better was if I could have tried some of them on--or if they were giving away boxes of shoes to take home! You know, a girl can dream!

Seriously, if you have a chance to see this show, please do. It is fun and so versatile to an art teacher's repertoire! I have a bunch of future art ideas in store for my kiddos.

Enjoy!
