Dancing Cheek to Cheek

My mother told me I was dancing before I was born.  She could feel my toes tapping wildly inside her for months.
Ginger Rogers

The art of dancing has always intrigued me and when I watch Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire dancing I am in another world, a world of gliding and swaying in step right along with them.  This is from the 1935 movie, Top Hat, a favorite of mine.


A new item soon to be listed in my Etsy shop:

Handmade muslin rag wreath Complete with frayed and ragged edges!

A lovely set of (6) Fall Ballet note cards.  The print is designed by EvaAgnes, who's lovely Etsy shop of nostalgic and dreamy prints can be viewed here:  (HERE)

  1. Dear Kris,
    alas I can't dance well. So I just dance when there is no body arround. ;)
    Have a nice day.
    Warm regards,

  2. Oh Ginger - I remember finding her so stylish when I saw those movies! :-)

  3. old film with Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers are favourites of mine too.
    i also like very much Gene Kelly films...

    dancing gives us so much possitive! - even by watching it only ; )

  4. I so think that dancing can elevate one's mood and enhance living..
    and love your little pretty!!!

  5. The wreath is very nice. I just made a white feather wreath as my winter front door wreath so the lack of holiday decorations wouldn't seem so bare.

  6. Fred Astaire was one of the most elegant men, ever! He literally floated above the dance floor. My favorite quote attributed to Ginger was that she could do everything that Fred did, only backwards and in high heels. Like most women. What a team they were. Who would not feel better after watching them dance?

  7. I just love the old Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers films, and Gene Kelly was always one of my favourite dancers, they don't make upbeat films like that any more, more is the pity. We could all do to be transported to a fairy wonderland, with elegance and wonderul costumes. 'Dirty Dancing' doesn't quite hack it.

    I love the muslin wreath, so very pretty.
