A day indoors can be lovely. There are lots of nice homely things to do and games to play and most of the time I love staying cosy while the world storms around us... but there was a murmuring voice in the wind today... a persistent little voice... that called me out into the wild afternoon for a little lonesome fairytale adventure.
Through the magical castle gate and into Eye-Candy Land!
Where there are pretty tea-cups
and sweetly scented soaps.
Pretty perfume bottles.
and treaty treats!
and woven birds!
Tempting things for the tiny twins...
and glimpses of the castle's rain-swept enchanted gardens.
But best of all, in this magical land there was time... a little precious time...
for warming soup and the exciting climax of a story.
And oh, it was a great escape!
