A Fairytale Summer


What's in this issue?

Cinderella's Kitchen the Decorating article

Fortunately, all the varieties of make-over marvels include elements that can be adapted to any home to create a fairytale feeling, whether the ideas take loads of time and pay off for decades, or simply provide instant, eye-pleasing gratification. These are the headings under which ideas are presented: The Hearth, Lighten Up, But Don't Be Afraid of the Dark, Rags to Riches, Dealing with Reality



Resplendent Beauty the Hearth article

Elspeth presents two original designs of her own for fairy folk art perfect for making any wall, any furniture, or accent into an enchanted chamber. Includes step-by-step illustrated instructions.



Nibble, Nibble On My House the Kitchen article

Block gingerbreads are still beautiful treasures to make and share, but creating really fine examples is labor-intensive and tricky enough to feel a bit more like a career choice than an afternoon's baking. So we edited the concept a bit in order to create some lovely little gingerbread dwellings that can easily be finished in one day's baking.



Old Tunes Very Excellent the Music article

A short listening list of Baroque favorites to accompany any fairytale afternoon.



Dame Gothel's Garden the Garden article

A garden that makes the most of every inch of space because it provides both food for the eye and the table is an Eden to many of us; and in the spirit of The Brothers Grimm and their heroine, Rapunzel, we pull together some of the beautiful, the forgotten, and the venerable plants that might have flowered in the garden of Dame Gothel, the sorceress, to tantalize the neighborhood and lure everyone back out to work in the garden.



Ingenious Contrivance the Workshop article

The story of The Little Glass Slipper, all about "grace of bearing” outshining “high birth,” seemed a perfect fit for our new kitchen workspace. In keeping with Perrault's patchwork career and Cinderella's coach, made from a commonplace, hollowed-out pumpkin, we took on a touch of rural Rococo grandeur in creating a kitchen island from salvage as well as leftover odds and ends languishing in the workshop scrap piles.



Heaven Answers Every Prayer the Writer's Garret article

Perched in the rigging of the foremast, Seymore spies Holyhead Mountain--his first sight of fabled Albion. Then, from Liverpool Seymore and Leornian sail to Kirkcudbright and travel overland to the ruins of Dundrennan Abbey. They meet Apsel Transept, a dangler of no small reputation, who takes them rock climbing for a day, a star-filled night, and a day upon the ancient ruin.
