My daughter's first ballet recital is coming up next month. It's such an exciting time of the year because it brings back so many memories for me. I took 11 years of dance lessons and I loved every minute of it!
Yesterday, my daughter had her first opportunity to get all dressed up in her recital costume. I did my best, as a first time ballet mom, to get her all gussied up with the proper stage make-up and a ballerina bun. I have to admit she was pretty darn cute and I was one proud mama! I can't wait until the actual performance!
So in the meantime, excuse me if I have ballerinas on the brain! If you have the same affliction you will want to check out all of the adorable ballet themed items I have found on Etsy lately. I'm beginning to think I'm not the only one thinking ballet!
Here is a beautiful watercolor print by Paint Ashley .
I love the sweet ballerina in this vibrant print by Jolinne.
And every dancer must have her shoes! Check out these felt ballet slippers by Evgie
If you have shoes you'll need a bag to carry them in. Check out this adorable ballet bag by Splendiferous Fiber!
I love this Ballerina Slipper Clippie by Gia Bowtique! Who knew you could take tiny ribbons and make them into ballet slippers? So cute!
Here's another pretty pink
hair bow by Peek-A-Bowtique!
And what a great way to store all of those cute ballerina hair accessories! I thought this was such a unique and pretty bow holder by Add a Lil Charm!
Really could it get any cuter than this knitted ballet dancer buddy doll by Granny Knits? Oh, how I wish I was a little girl again!
Oh, wait! I almost forgot! You can't have a ballerina if you don't have a tutu! Goody Goody Tutus makes some of the most gorgeous and adorable tutus I've ever seen!
Sorry if you too have now developed a case of "ballerinas on the brain!" It's not easy to get rid of you know! So, if you find any other fun ballerina stuff be sure to comment here. I just can't get enough!
