Suffering to look pretty. . .

 Good Morning, or for me it is nearly good afternoon. Had a late start this morning. Mr Hollywood and I danced the night away, with our dancing friends at a Dinner Dance evening in a local village hall. After not dancing for nearly a year (Mr H has a really bad back) we did manage to do a pretty good  Waltz. Our ChaCha and rock were ok. I also had a lovely partner for the Paso.  Miss not dancing every week.  Father Christmas, if you are listening, Mr H needs a new back.  And I need new feet. Put my three inch sparkly shoes on last night...am so suffering now. It was worth it...I LOVE my shoes.  
They are way to pretty to leave at home.

These little girls popped onto my pages this week. Shame my buildings and perspective is so off. Need to work on that.  These girlies need to get home before dark falls. Home in front of a nice roaring fire, fluffy slippers and a warm cup of soap....

That's my Fun and Nonsense for today. I'm sharing it with Sunday Sketches xx

I actually like the perspcetive of the second one. It adds to the feel of the piece. Like life has been closing in on her and she is running from it. Nice.

I love your girls' expressive eyes and their unusual settings. My wife and I used to love go dancing too, but don't get to do it much these days. Blessings!

Pretty girls in coats and I love how the second one looks like she's on a mission to get home. :)

Beautiful work. Enjoy your dancing!

I like your offbeat perspective, I wouldn't change it all, it all flows so well...lov e these drawings...

I rather like the perspective. It has somehow captured a 3D sort of effect and the girl is sort of popping out of the picture. Very clever :)
Hope Mr. H back is better and you can dance some more :)
