'Tis well to give honour and glory to age,
With its lessons of wisdom and truth;
Yet who would not go back to the fanciful page,
And the fairy tale read but in youth?
~Eliza Cook, "Stanzas," Melaia, and Other Poems, 1840
Today is July 1 and that means a new monthly challenge at SheepSki Designs Challenge blog and this month it is square cards!
I love Fairy Tales ...
I always have ... Something about them invokes thoughts of What if's and Forevers. They release my inner child and take me back to simpler times when there was nothing more important than sitting on my bed during the hottest days of summer with a cold glass of Kool-aid and getting lost in some adventure to a far off time and place. I still have several of my childhood favorites and some compilation books that I purchased when I had my first child.
This wonderfully fun image from SheepSki Designs brings back so many of those days of reading those same stories to both my children when they were younglings.
