Thursday Treats – Ballerina Purse
Do you know that Ballet started almost 500 years ago, in Italy?
Do you know that on average ballerinas wear out 2-3 pairs of pointe shoes per week?
Do you know that a male ballet dancer can lift over 1 & a half tonnes worth of ballerinas? That’s the same as picking up a Hippo! 🙄
Do you know that a three-hour ballet performance is roughly equivalent to running 18 miles?
I am now feeling sorry for myself…. Why didn’t I learned ballet dancing?? Is it too late now? 😦
Thursday Treats – Crocheted Crown for My Prince and Princess
Do you know that there are 25 windows in the Statue of Liberty Crown?
Do you know that in ancient Egypt, Royal women used to wear the Royal Vulture crown, having a falcon with wings folded?
Do you know that Gold Crown that Queen Elizabeth donned during her coronation in 1953, does not belong to her, but rather was a property of state?
Do you know that the oldest Christian crown in Europe is probably the Iron Crown of Lombardy?
Now I want a Crown too…. Who doesn’t want to be a Queen, unless you are a Queen in Game Of Thrones 😛
A Day With The Horses
A day well spent is a day with the nature, and what better way than to join the best of what nature has to offer.
We stumbled upon one such place on our way to Columbia highway. How extraordinary are those experiences when you found something you like, even when you were not looking for it. That’s what happened with my Hubby, when he was driving along the highway, and I pointed at the large number of horses roaming alongside.
It didn’t took more than a minute when he turned the wheels and went straight to them. I couldn’t even completed, “Where the hell are you going?”, and he was there.
It was a very large compound with lots and lots of different sized horses, from racing horses to ones for the breeding, sick horses for healing, to just some privately owned horses for training.
Only one who seemed more exciting than my hubby, was my little daughter Tisha. She was so happy that she was dancing all around those horses. She has always loved them. She is riding horses since she was two. 🙂
What surprises me, and I liked about that place was, that all the stables were clean and big enough for the horses,unlike what I have experienced before.
We also witnessed a newly born pony, and her over protective mother. It was Tisha’s favorite horse, now she is asking her Papa to buy her a pony horse. 🙂
What about my twin boys? Well, they were sleeping peacefully in the car, before we suddenly introduced them to beautiful horses. It took some time for them to get adjusted, and then they were all up for it. Playing and enjoying with them.
I was scared. How couldn’t I be? Most of them were more than 7 feet taller, and so big, with their big nostrils flaring as I was taking their pic. I excused myself from that ferocious stable, and move to the ones who were their for healing, and are up-to my acceptable level of size limits 🙂
Our party could have continued, if not rained. We finally packed, and leave with the hope of visiting them soon.
However, clicked some pics for you to enjoy. 🙂
