Little Pink Ballerina, and Some Springy Nests

Our little pink ballerina,
5 year old granddaughter, Ava.

Getting Ready for class.

Foot placement is very important.

Some are more ready than others.

And this sweet girl is ready!! =)


Craft day at Grandmas.

The girls love coming to the store with me.
There is a room full of craft supplies to play with.

Ava chose this little cupboard to paint.
It's about 5" tall.
She's painting it pink, of course!

Then she chose some miniatures to put in it.
I made these when our daughter went off to college,
years ago!!
Those little wire glasses are less
than 1" wide.
The buttons are little beads on a half inch card,
and the embroidery floss is real thread,
less than 1" long.

She was having so much fun.
When she finishes her little sewing cupboard next week,
I'll show it to you.


Here are a couple of Springy nests for you.

I Love this color.
Will post info about it and the how to's soon.

Happy Pink Saturday..have a lovely weekend.

You have amazing nests..I love them. And I like the ballet class pictures too. My daughter Sophie is 5 and it is her first year too and she like your granddaughter likes "different" tights. I adore when children have no fear of their individuality.
thanks for stopping by my little blog.
