Glad you liked it.
Uneasy lies the head that wears a crown and then, sleeps for a 100 years…..talk about hat hair! Crowning glory? Ok, enough with the jokes 😀 Wow! The rendering of the tassels, tendrils of her hair, lace, gathers, embroidery and fur are simple yet so stunning.
Economical – the whole is much more than the lines and colors! She would be a wreck sleeping that long – covered with dust, her bedding disintegrating, . . .
I’d hate to wake up to that dork. 🙂
He is the same in every fairy tale in this book!
That’s kind of weird. I guess the illustrator was either lazy or that was their dream type. They say that there’s someone for everyone, you know.
Ah, blissful sleep! What I wouldn’t give for a good 12 hours out of that 100 years. I would even be willing to prick my finger and forgo the Prince. Wouldn’t make much of a fairy tale though.
I love to sleep!
Yes, I can never get enough; ever.
Wow, I’ve really been out of touch awhile. This is another great one!
