Cream and candy

Sunday favorites. Flicking through old ballet books. Drinking hazelnut hot chocolate with fresh whipped cream. Eating italian candies. Sewing. Watching old movies.

In my mind there's no better way to spend a Sunday then watching old movies while sipping a warm concoction. What movies did you watch?

Info on the ballerinas: The image represents the premiere of the "Grand pas de quatre" in London, in 1845, directed by Jules Perrot, who appears as the ballet teacher in the paintings of Degas, and performed by the 4 greatest romantic ballerinas of that time: Marie Taglioni, Carlotta
Grisi, Fanny Cerrito (London's favourite. She also was one of the few women in the 19th century to achieve distinction as a choreographer) and Lucille Grahn. Oh, this century was full of great names and true talents...
