Romantic Era Victorian Ballerina Marie Tagolini - Butterfly Fairy

I do not know what has gotten into me! I have another new post for you!

 Looking through my files for just the right thing and this is it. Ballet!  It is the time of year when so many see The Nutcracker Suite. I remember watching it on TV and falling in love with ballet. It was just so pretty. The pictures today feature the Romantic Era  ballerina, Marie Taglioni (1804-1884). The picture are from Wikimedia Commons.
Enjoy the images and hopefully they will find there way into your many and varied projects.
Much love to all of you, Louise

Thanks for the beautiful ballerinas. I have some ballerina scrapbook paper I'll be using for my granddaughter's Christmas card. She's not into ballet herself, but loves watching it.
