One wants to wander away from the world’s some-wheres..
....................into our own nowhere.”

It was the perfect late-summer day; Gretta launched off in the dingy out onto the lake from the Castle of Butter with her little sprite friends. The wind was dancing with the surface of the water that rocked the old vessel like a loving mother gently lulling her child to sleep.

Summer faerie dust however, has an effect on Gretta's nose.

Gretta violently sneezed and suddenly found herself on shore, sitting in front of the Faerie Maiden of the Sea, who had come to shore herself and was now enveloped in wings of gossamer blue. Gretta herself had gone through quite a transformation, for she was now an elf.

The Faerie Maiden said to Gretta, "No longer shall you read the accounts of other story tellers, but it is time to tell your tale, Gretta....what shall it be?

Good Morning Sweetie...
Oh what a beautiful share this morning. God Bless You Gretta Sweetie, what a strong sneeze you have this morning. Strangely it brought you to the Fairie Maiden and now you get to tell your tale. Oh please do, please do. We are all waiting.

Love the drawings and the movement of Gretta is just precious.

Have a gorgeous day sweet friend.

Country hugs and much love, Sherry
