This is for Teapot Tuesday and to let Cindy know I am thinking of her and her family, especially Aunt Martha.
Beauty the swan wandered into a lovely tree lined garden and sat hidden behind the curtain and watched an outdoor ballet concert. Beauty wasn't really into ballet, but heck, it was at least named after her. After a short time Beauty realised she did like ballet and returned to watch the performance every day until the circus came to town....that is a story for another day.
It is hard to see in the photo, but there are feathers popping out from behind the panel that has the ballerina. The garden beds have tiny little flowers, beaded trim was done using Liquid Pearls. Thank you for looking, I'm off to the post office.

Absolutely gorgeous! So soft and lovely, I actually noticed the feathers right away! I love how you used the pearl drops too. So much love and attention went into this, it will surely be appreciated greatly.
