Time Warp Tuesday: Fairy Tale Life

I've always loved fairy tales. 
I longed to escape into the secret lands of the black forests, 
where wolves could speak and brothers turned into swans. 
Is it any wonder, when I am descended from a family named Grimm? 

Christmas 1964.
Red Riding Hood costumes for me and my best friend.
Note the stylish wolf purse!


I still have the outfits.

I have always loved fairy tales too. I read through all the colors of the series of fairy tale books. I was a bit disappointed that my own daughter has never been nearly as taken with their romantic nature, so while I tried reading some of those books to her, she was never really interested. One of the things I loved about those books was the illustrations!
