    1. My dear Gunvor Karita,
      Thank you for your words. I'm very glad you enjoyed it. This type of illustration is really a delight. I am a collector of old children's books, and I never tire of admiring the charm of these images. But my favorite is undoubtedly Cicely Mary Barker.
      From what I've seen, and like me, you are also a fan of fairies, angels, and elves. It's a wonderful world!

      Thanks for your visit,
      Love and light
