It’s time to get your dance shoes on, and get ready to celebrate one of Hollywood’s greatest screen teams, Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers.
For the next three days that’s what Michaela from Love Letters To Old Hollywood and I will be doing. For those bloggers who are joining the party, please send your entries to either Michaela or me, and we’ll link them as soon as we can. A big thank you to all participants. We look forward to celebrating Fred and Ginger with you.
