Fairy Stories for Pink Saturday!

I think you all know how much I love books! Well, here is the cover of my very first book—at least the first book I remember "reading" over and over again! Such a beautiful illustration!

  7. That book cover looks lovely.

    I remember having a Cinderella story book and she wore a similar style dress to that one on there and that is why I had the wedding gown I wore with the little bows on it.

    Sorry I haven't been over here lately I have just been so busy even though I have been on holiday. I've been doing stuff for wedding stationery, researching my family tree, chores around the garden etc etc.

  8. oh my word I love this picture! Happy Pink Saturday! Grace xoxoxo
