Stardust & Fairytales

"He who is a dreamer of dreams, is slave to no man nor condition."

I created an outfit style board with some whimsical finds reminiscent of fairytales. Isn't this dress stunning? I wish I had somewhere to wear it so I would have an excuse to buy it!

In case you missed it, I shared the story of how I came to own this lovely book of poetry for children in my post "For I have eaten fairy bread, and drunk the fairies' wine." earlier this week.

"But he who does not believe implicitly in fairies, who has never lain in the summer grasses, and, looking up, seen castles and giants in the clouds; who has never lain under the stars in the solitude of enchanted woods, and heard trees talk together, and known they were personalities,—ah! he has missed the real beauty in life itself, and is to be classed among the sad."
