I’ve seen some really awesome holga photography like this and this while browsing flickr. How sweet are his-n-hers holgas? What a lucky couple. At $6.99 each, in original boxes, like new, you’ve gotta love the Goodwill!

Ever since seeing this lovely photograph months ago, I have been charmed by the idea of tap dancing. I think finding a sweet pair of vintage mary jane tap shoes like these just might convince me to take it up!

Speaking of tap dancing, and in keeping with the pairs theme, check out these adorable tap dancing twins from 1934 :D

Finding vintage tap shoes in my size would make me want to tap dance as well.

I had the urge at 22-24 when I got heavily into 1930s musical films. Sadly, I never got to take tap classes because I worked at night. :(

That nifty thrift group is horrible to look at.
Every, well most items just tug at my heart wishing I had it haha.
But very inspirational and great to see what is out there.

I love my new old tap shoes, but my boyfriend keeps on reminding that my downstairs neighbor probably don't like my late night shirley temple practice. Things to keep in mind!
