On Faeriefolk. . .

I like faeries. I have for many years. I read faerie tales when very young, from a book that was my mothers when she was a little girl. In junior high, I read all of the rainbow fearie books. Even just a few months ago, Hubby bought me a faerie book as a surprise.

Carla Rolfe, blogger of wisdom and homeschool mama of seven, has a faerie tale book she's written and published, Maplewood Manor Garden Faeires. I like the bits I've read about it, and knowing Carla and her writing, I'm sure this book captures a bit of the enchantment of childhood.

I'm not so sure about the 'blogger of wisdom' part ;-) but I sure appreciate the mention of my book. Thank you :-)

SDG,
Carla

Tulipgirl, if faery imagery appeals to you, you may enjoy this, recent work by gifted illustrator (& dear Christian friend of mine), Jeff Fisher.

I also love the rainbow fairy books, Andrew Lang, were they?

Julana, I just had to google that--you are right, those fairy books were compiled by Andrew Lang.


Thank you, Paul, for recommending those links.


Carla, you're modest. *grin*
