Ballerina Still Dancing



You know how you buy some things that you love and then, eventually, you fall "out" of love with them?

 Perhaps it's just part of human nature.



Well, there's one little treasure purchased last year that's still a very favorite.  If you missed the original post on her, and would like to read it, it's here:  http://writingstraightfromtheheart.blogspot.com/2010/01/charm-and-grace.html


Have to chuckle that the post ran in January of last year. Little ballerina has changed locations.



She no longer resides in a bedroom.  Ballerina is in a downstairs room now where she can be seen every single day.

She is so charming in every detail, right down to tiny earrings.


The gracefulness of this little figure amazes. She's just so darned sweet and the epitome of loveliness, don't you think?


One day this week I captured her in the late afternoon sun and there was a shadow behind her.  She looked so stunning to me---so artistic.



Little ballerina just makes me smile. Don't really know why she is so mesmerizing but I'm glad she came home with me that day so long ago.

WHAT IS ONE LITTLE WORK OF ART AROUND YOUR HOUSE? TELL US ABOUT IT.

She's lovely! The artist captured the grace and fluid motion of a dancer.

I love the shadow that she casts too. It make her seem more "real."

Have a great night Susan.

Susan, I too thought the shadows she cast was a part of the beauty.

She is so graceful and I love the delicacy and how the light plays on her form. I have something I will show tomorrow ;-)

She is just gorgeous, and such great detail...so realistic. I have a couple of small things that make me happy to look at, but at the moment, can't think of any!

She is lovely Susan :-). I have an oil burner, where there's three colorful fairies that is holding the glass cup [where the water and oil goes]
Have a lovely day!

What a charming ballerina! I can see why you are so "taken" with her. She certainly photographs beautifully from any position! Such
grace and balance!
I have a bronze Art Nouveau dragon-
fly lady, lifting her "wings" to the sky, that I bid on and won at an auction. She is one of my favorite small objects in my house!
Thank you for sharing yours. This is my first visit but I will be back
often!!
