There and back again

I've always had a serious case of wanderlust, ever since I was a little girl.

When I was about 8 or 9 years old, I wrote a letter to C.S. Lewis, begging him to tell me how I could get to Narnia. I never mailed the letter, and I always sort of regretted it. But now look what I've found! A sign-post that will lead me to all sorts of wonderful places. Just imagine...

Tea with Mr Tumnus.
Shopping for school supplies in Diagon Alley.
Following the yellow brick road.
Visiting Frodo and Sam in the Shire.
Studying and scheming in the Gryffindor Tower with Harry, Ron and Hermione.

How amazing would that be? I'm sure the signs I can't quite read say things like Green Gables. The Secret Garden. Zuckerman's Farm. Wonka's Chocolate Factory. How would I ever choose where to go first?

What wonderful world from children's literature would you like to visit? Let's plan to go there together.

  1. You're right! It is the cutest picture, I love it so much. And thank you for your nice words :) We are excited!

  2. I thought of you when I saw that picture!

    Apologies for your new found Tumblr-obsession!


  3. I love this photograph! Oh, how I wish some of these places were real. I'd head to Ollivander's for a wand first...


Yay! I love comments.
