Charm and Grace!

Delicate sculptures are extremely appealing. As if frozen in time, they are a delight to the eyes.

While browsing in Saver's this past holiday season, I came across a ballerina music box balanced on a shelf in dance position. She was graceful and perfectly posed, as if ready to twirl around a stage. She caught me off guard because I was not in the market for a ballerina.

The music accompanying her mid-air balancing act is from the Nutcracker Suite. It's mysterious and haunting as the little ballerina, herself.

So today she dances on a dresser in the guest bedroom, adding charm and a touch of grace to the decor.

Even though not on the lookout for a ballerina music box, finding her was a stroke of good luck. It's the little things that add a touch of pizazz to everyday living. Every glimpse of the little ballerina makes me happy!

This is a photo of the ballerina, in front of a mirror and one looking down!
