tutus and feathers



I guess every little girl wants to be a ballerina at some point in their childhood. The idea of transforming into this magical, ethereal creature that gracefully bends to pick up flowers at the end of a performance can't be beat.

I still hang on to this obsession just a tiny bit. I think I quit ballet too soon ... and I really wish now that I had stuck with it! Especially since I turned out to be naturally skinny and non-stacked!  Ah well. Such is life.  

BUT --- on the upside --- ballet is chock full of whimsical inspiration! I'm especially enthralled with "Swan Lake." The white feather look is just too perfect. 

I know I said I was going to do an "Alice in Wonderland" line ... (and I've made some pieces if you look carefully!) But I think it's going to be Swan Lake all the way for the winter months :)

I didn't dream of being a ballerina until I grew up. It's never too late to learn something new. Love the pictures.
