Sad. The video will not play for me.

Happy! The video wouldn't play but I grabbed the slider and moved it manually to see the pics. Love that turquoise color. Maya is a doll.

Dina said...

What a great hand-me-down! Wow, I can almost Maya's castinets.

Kate Coveny Hood said...

This didn't work for me - but I took quilly's suggestion and saw the stills. So cute!

Maribeth said...

It worked great for me. Isn't it wonderful that you can pass something so special on to your own daughter?
Saw your Mom tonight. Please keep me posted.

Such a pretty dress! She is a doll in it.

Susan said...

What an awesome way to share the joy of the holiday! I'll bet you are surfeit with humantashen LOL. Happy WW!

Adorable! My daughter was a "pencil" for Purim...she's 13...a whole other kind of sensibility about what a costume might be at that age!

Beth F said...

OMG! She is so cute! I was not a very girly girl, but I always wanted to be princess for Purim (but not for Halloween). How cool that you still have one of your own Purim dresses.

Auntie E said...

Hope you all had fun at the Purim festivities, I love the dress.
My WW link for you

Susan Adcox said...

I'm so uninformed. I didn't know that Purim involved costumes. Now I'll have to Google it.

Very cute costume. I just finished The Flamenco Academy by Sarah Bird, and it gave me a whole different view of flamenco. It's a fascinating art.

An adorable young lady. Possibly another Portman from Israel?

Robin said...

We'll see, right now modeling is a sideline LOL - she wants to be a doctor when she grows up.

Besides, she won't take direction worth a damn ;).

Daryl said...

Adorable .. dancing more like flapper than flamenco but she's a cutie!

Julia Smith said...

'Besides, she won't take direction worth a damn ;)' - LOL!

Definitely love her enthusiasm for the dress. It must be fun to see her in it.

shibori girl said...

Utterly charming! And how lucky that you saved the dress.

Of course I'll be putting your name in the hat for my drawing - winning once doesn't preclude the chance for winning again. ;)
