“The fairy poet takes a sheet Of moonbeam, silver white; His ink is dew from daisies sweet, His pen a point of light” ~Joyce Kilmer
I’ve always been attracted to the beauty, morality and wonder of fairy-tales, from when I was small to present day they’ve held my fascination. Recently I’ve been watching the TV series Once Upon A Time and I was reminded of an idea I’d had years ago to curate a collection of fairy-tale-inspired items of ecofashion and beauty!
So allow me to whisk you away to a magical realm – enjoy!
