Fairytales Storybox

Past Pieces

Fairytales Storybox features a handmade Amanita muscaria toadstool, which I crafted from leather from vintage evening gloves. Standing on top of the toadstool are two adorable fairies – I think they might be more mischievous sprites! They are hand-drawn and painted, from 1912, and rather wonderful. The beautiful embroidery is c. late 1800’s, and was originally from a purse. It is stunning quality, and the colours are divine! The quote is by C.S. Lewis. It is all set inside a little vintage 1930’s sectioned wooden drawer, and hangs by a vintage cuckoo clock chain.
