RUMINATING REPOST: CICELY MARY BARKER - THE FAIRY AND FLOWER GIRL...
Sometimes, when lying in bed at night, with nothing to read and bored out of my skull, I would dig out the book from my bedside drawer and look at the pictures - or even read "All Things Bright and Beautiful" to myself to remind me of my childhood days so many years before. When we moved to a new house in 1983 and I found myself repeating the experience in my new abode, I couldn't do so without wistfully remembering doing the same thing in my old room in what seemed another life away.
Anyway, enjoy the serenity and tranquility that these illustrations epitomize, and try to recall what it was like to be a child of another, far different era.
