  1. Wonderful photos of a wonderful family! But I don't understand one of the ballet-costumes. It is "Nutcracker", I think. Why the grey stains on the Mouseking? Is it mildewed?

    2. The ballet scene seems to me as the famous Andersen fairy tale: The Unshakeable Lead Soldier. The author is Danish. In the story the toy lead soldier is thrown out because he misses one leg. I think the black half of the trousers symbolises this.

    3. phzs, thank you very much for this information! I thought the ballet is E.T.A. Hoffmanns Nutcracker, but of course a danish fairytale makes much more sense here! I've looked it up in Wikipedia, because I don't know so much about Andersen. I only knew his sad story about the little girl with the matches (I'm sure you know, what I mean). Are all fairytales of Andersen so sad?

  4. A wonderful outfit on Queen Margrethe, such great tailoring, a subtle mix of textures, and a bit of Christmas spirit with the red jacket and blouse. Josephine looks completely adorable. This appears to have been a very happy event for all concerned.
