  2. Again, you show me a piece that I have either forgotten from youth or never seen. In either case, it’s fresh and beautiful to me! I wonder what someone would say today about a woman lacing her shoes in that position. Ha! A strumpette no doubt. The tutu is amazing. My first one was pink and not so fancy. I still had it until the storage units were plundered. Oh, well, it is in my memory. Thank you for another beautiful moment in my day, Sunnyside!!! I hope your afternoon is beautiful!!
