High Heels.
We just love to look at them, to slip into them ...
they're truly works of art.

And sometimes they stand for something ...
and, in fact, inspire other works of art.
Have you met Celia of the blog:
"High Heeled Life ... Are You Living Yours?" ...
if not, please let me introduce you!

Without divulging too much about Celia's story,
(as NO one could tell it better that Celia herself),
let me just say that she was living what
she considered to be a
High Heeled Life a few years ago
when something happened that made her feel as if
she had fallen off that High Heeled Life
and sent her on a search to rediscover herself.
Her blog, in fact, used to be called
"Falling off a High Heeled Life."

Fast forward.
Now Celia is launching a brand new look
to celebrate a new direction and the
discoveries she's made along the way
and she shares it all with us.
She recently contacted me to create
three illustrations for her blog to help her tell her story.

The first illustration is of a striking red high heel
with two diamond butterflies
to symbolize change.

The second illustration is of a chic red chaise lounge
that she is currently using as her symbol for readers' questions ...

The third illustration is a cute yoga girl
to symbolize Celia's connection
 to mind-body-spirit .

To learn more about Celia's story, go here and
to see where she is now and to see the introduction
of the illustrations, go here.

Thank you, Celia!
It was a pleasure creating a little magic for you and
I can't wait to
your future adventures in your new
High Heeled Life!

Have a wonderful week, everyone!
See you Wednesday!

What a gorgeous selection of heels and these three lovely illustrations are just perfect for Celia's blog which I have been following for quite a while now.
PS Thank you for taking the time to comment on my blog and on my guest post at Rosemary's. I should have guessed that you created the illustration which sums up her blog in such a stylish and eye-catching way!
