Titania, Queen of the Fairies



I know a bank where the wild thyme blows,
Where oxlips and the nodding violet grows,
Quite over-canopied with luscious woodbine,
With sweet musk-roses and with eglantine:
There sleeps Titania sometime of the night,
Lull'd in these flowers with dances and delight;
And there the snake throws her enamell'd skin,
Weed wide enough to wrap a fairy in.

--Shakespeare A Midsummer Night's Dream

Oh I love this Beth! What a talent:)

I love when you stop by my blog it allows me to sneek by yours. I really should be better at checking in on everyone. Time just flies by and somehow I get lost in the race.

Have a magical evening.

wow, this is fantastic--I like your attention to detail! And the Shakespeare quote if very fitting for this, it looks like an illustration that would be used for that very play.

Gorgeous, where your mind and hand takes you. I'm wondering on your workspace. Tell me you've a perfect window, even if it's bare, old and cracked.

I am thinking, you should put these in a book. Too beautiful not to share, with a bigger space than 'Blog Land'.
