Elegant Lavender Lady Dancing

We have firmly turned the corner in Hallmark’s current 12 Days of Christmas series this year since this is our second year with humans.  It only makes sense since this year we get Nine Ladies Dancing.

Okay, so we really just get one lady dancing, but she elegant.  She is wearing a very pretty lavender dress and shoes.  Around the bottom of her dress are the notes and words for her verse of the song.  In her hand, she’s holding a gold heart with nine on it, the substitute for the dangle element we got with the birds.  Her hair is up in a bun, and she has a hint of a smile on her face.

I do miss the almost decoupage feel of the earlier ornaments in this series, but that is a minor complaint.  This ornament looks so elegant.  With her on her toes, she feels like she is in the middle of dancing for us, and the heart she is holding would become a prop in the dance.  Imaging eight more dancing with her would be quite the show.  While the majority of the ornament is plastic, there is a real ribbon tied around her waist.

Because she is on her toes, she wouldn’t stand up on her own, but none of the series would stand on their own, so that’s no real surprise.  Fortunately, she is perfectly balanced, so when you hang her on your tree, you’ll find she hangs straight.

No, the 9 on the heart she is holding is not the series marker on her.  It’s hidden where you’d expect it to be, on the underneath part of her dress between her feet.

The color also blends well with the light blue that was used last year for the Maid a Milking.  The two will be pretty together side by side.  It makes me look forward to seeing the color we will get for next year’s ornament.

While the style of the series might have changed a little, I am still quite happy with the look of this year’s Nine Ladies Dancing.  I can’t believe we only have three years left in the series.
