On Wednesday Little Miss and I headed off to the National Art Gallery for the Ballet Russes Exhibition
This sphere an Iconic sign to anyone who has been there. I remember it taking my breath away upon sight during my first Visit there as a Child
The plaque outside the entrance we were waiting at. Little Miss liked that it was 'really old' and ran her fingers over the text.
She ran around outside taking pictures of everything she could see, once we got inside our cameras were into the backpack and stored at the cloakroom.
This was her favourite piece from the exhibition. It was the one piece she could identify as most like a modern day Tutu. The detail and workmanship in all of these garments is astounding. Its from the Ballet ' Le Mariage d'Aurore' [ Aurora's Wedding ]

Afterwards we stopped by Shop hand made Canberra and bought ourselves some pressies which I will share later. During our visit we did manage to knock over an artists work and damage it, much to my horror and dismay. However ( who I am told is ) Rachel at Shop was most gracious about it and kind to my little Miss who was worried and Scared, an artist herself, like me feeling with accuracy the potential pain of having something you worked hard on and put your heart into damaged. Rachel sent her away reassured and Happy.
Thanks Rachel : )
All in all we had a lovely last day alone together before School goes back next week.
