Valentine’s ballerina costume …..
Happy Valentine everybody … what could be a more beautiful way than being presented with a 1920’s ballerina costume for valentines day by my husband …. (ok yes I found it on ebay first) … I have displayed it in an old frame that I found washed up on the beach … lovely old wood, so much texture … I hung some vintage ballet slippers with it ….. Apparently it came from the Paris Opera Ballet, the oldest ballet company in the world, where it would likely to have been worn by one or two famous ballerinas around 1920 or earlier. It has the most exquisite metal wire work embroidery on the front of it featuring dozens of antique pink crystal flower shaped mirror beads in divine shades of pink on silk satin. feel very blessed … got red roses from my cat ZuZu too ……… have a great day !
