Found Beauty #7- Pointe Shoes.

My newest vintage treasures... the ruby red pointe shoes, worn in the Wizard of Oz ballet, have such a special charm, haven't they?

  8. What a great collection of Ballerina Slippers! Recently at an Event there were a couple of Russian Pointe Shoes in Pink Satin, Lovely... I would have liked to have owned a pair of them but since I know very little about Ballet Collectibles I wouldn't have a clue as to what is a good price so I passed.

  13. They are beautiful, Monica. I can close my eyes and imagine the music and steps of the dancers.

    I've been sick with a terrible cold and cough. I am on week three now, but I am beginning to get better. Unfortunately, now my sweet husband has it.

    I hope you will be joining us each week of Pink Saturdays during the holidays. We are having a month of Pink Saturdays to feature anything holiday related.
