Fairy tales


Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs



Little Red Riding Hood

Jack and the Beanstalk



Oh how I love fairy tales

They are a magical part of growing up
Stories handed down from generation to generation
Timeless stories, loaded with drama and excitement
Always ending in good triumphing over bad
My favorite haunt is old worldly bookshops and market fairs
I find lovely old fashioned children' s books and get inspired
By the beautiful illustrations.
Here are a few fairy tale creation's

love and light Marie

  3. I love your little red riding hood and Jack and the beanstalk, its interesting that these fairytales are the same in the UK & New Zealand and most probably elsewhere as well. Have a lovely day.

  11. I bought a second hand book years ago, called Folk Tales of all Nations. It has lots of stories from 42 different countries. What amazed me was how the same story, such as Little Red Riding Hood can vary so much in details between each country. It was printed in 1939, so some stories would be toned down now a days, but definitely a good read.

    Love your interpretation of each of these well loved stories.

  16. Lovely work, evocative of a child's illustrated fairy tale. I needle felt as well, but my style is completely different than yours. That is one of the great things about the medium- the range of styles.
