Ellabie's comment jogged my memory and I went looking for my collection of fairy books some of which I have posted today. The Fairyopolis is an amazing album which I found described on Amazon like this: Learn what really happened that magical summer when Cicely Mary Barker discovered the secret world of the flower fairies.
Another of C.M. Barker's books
. ..and yet more!
Here's a book I found at a thrift store last week and have begun to read.
And another found the same day. I have one of Jill Walker's pictures that I've had for a few years. I saw it in the thrift store ( where else!!) priced at $7.50 and I didn't buy it. Went home and regretted it all week. The next week I went back and promised myself this time I would buy it IF it was still there. Not only was it, but it was half price. I still think I like my picture best of all her art.
I don't know if you can make out the words. It says Asylum for aged destitute and infirm females.
Can't finish without a little nursery rhyme. Remember this one?
Thanks for visiting today,
