Too-too Tutus

I stopped in a store today and was immediately called by wispy, billowy, swirly, sparkly, ruffly tutus - size 1 and 2 - hanging in the back.  I don't know about you but whenever I see tutu's I'm immediately about 5 years old.  We didn't have tutus then, maybe some girls who were in ballet, but whenever I got a new dress the first thing I did was to twirl to see how twirly it was. 

One day at the grocery store I saw a little girl about 5 years old.  She was wearing braids, jeans, a little tee shirt, scruffy sneakers, a tee shirt jacket - and a tutu.  Of course I didn't have my camera!!  I fell in love with that little girl who could have cared less what else she had on as long as she had her tutu on.  Sigh..........

Yes----little girls do love their tutus .... What cute ones you saw!!!! Reminded me of my oldest granddaughter when she was about 5--and taking dance lessons. I went to one of her recitals --and she was the cutest one in the show... (Of course Grammy's have to say that!!!! ha)

Thanks for sharing.
Hugs,
Betsy

Ah, tutus. They do look cute. However, they remind me of a horrible dance instructor I used to have.

About a year ago I left a store regretting not buying a tutu I saw in adult size, Amanda tracked it down and bought it for me and I love it. Wasn't that sweet!! It looks like the one Glinda wore in the Wizard of Oz I look quite portly in it but I dress up with Mimi call me crazy but it's fun!

Diane, Thank you for visiting me via of ZuZu's blog & for your sweet comment. It's always so fun to go and visit someone you haven't met before...Read quite a few of your posts...loved the roses, your journal pages, the photo and story of the man painting the fence, the zinnia shots, etc. Lots of lovely little vignettes! Xo, Sue

There was something magical about having a skirt that did that, wasn't there? Too sweet!
