W is for... Women

For my 2017 challenge, I was not sure quite what I wanted to blog about. Numerous ideas were coming to mind but each seemed to require even more energy and strength. So I've decided to focus on an acronym for ART:
A - Artists (musicians, painters, photographers, writers, etc.)
R - Reading (books, poems, etc.)
T - Theater (movies, musicals, plays, etc.)

Today we're focusing on...


A - 
I love paintings and photographs of women who are dancing. Such grace and beauty.

R -
This is one of my favorite Poirot novels because it is when Captain Hastings (whom I named my dog after) meets the love of his life, "Cinderella". And lets admit, who among us wasn't a bit sad he was taken off the market? Gotta love ourselves some Poirot with his eccentricities and Captain Hastings with his gentlemanly goodness.

T - 
The Women (1939) has to be one of my favorite ensemble pieces with such wittiness and an incredible ensemble of Hollywood's best.
The Women (1939).

I'm not sure, but I think I might have seen 'The women' a loooong time a go, when black and white films still aired on tv (in the oddest times of the day in the deep of summer, usually).

Great post :-)

Beautiful painting! and I loved Christie in my teen years and still reread them from time to time for a nostalgia fix. You never outgrow Christie :)

Wow, this is such a neat theme for the A to Z Challenge! Good job with it. :)
And that painting is really beautiful and graceful. It's kinda peaceful to just sit and look at it.

As a rule, women with less feeling of design and clothing won't not consider wearing upper garments that suits their chest region
