~La Belle au Bois Dormant~


Once upon a time in a faraway enchanting land lived La Belle au Bois Dormant!









These lovely images tells a dreamy story of a Lovely Sleeping Beauty...Waiting for her Prince!
If you scroll back to my first image...You will find a piece of art which has been in our family for MANY generations! The story goes like this...My great, great Grandma passed away and my family didn't know where she had placed her will. As a last resort they went to see a Fortune teller. The Fortune teller told them "The Will" is behind the Rhine. No one understood what was the meaning to this. They all went home and returned to My great, great Grandma's home the next day and looked around again. There it was...The Rhine River resting in it's frame just waiting to be turned over. At last the will was found! Taped onto the back of this picture.
So that is the story about the cork painting from Germany which was passed down for many generations. I just loved listening to my Grandma tell me this story as I stood on one of her antique chairs staring at it for hours. I made her story last for hours and made it into my own little fairytale.
Does anyone have any lovely pieces that has been passed from one generation to the next?
Until next time, may everyone have a LOVELY DAY!

How very special and what a beautiful post!! I inherited many items from my Grandma but nothing with a grand story such as this.
I love listening to stories-of-old from elderly family.
