"At last he came to the chamber where the fairy sat, where there were seven hundred birds singing in seven hundred cages. When the fairy saw Jorindel she was very angry, and screamed with rage; but she could not come within two yards of him, for the flower he held in his hand was his safeguard. He looked around at the birds, but alas! there were many, many nightingales, and how then should he find out which was his Jorinda?

While he was thinking what to do, he saw the fairy had taken down one of the cages, and was making the best of her way off through the door. He ran after her, touched the cage with the flower, and Jorinda stood before him, and threw her arms round his neck looking as beautiful as ever, as beautiful as when they walked together in the wood.”

This is my last post of 2013, and the last post I’ll make until January 11th because I’m taking a little hiatus. I wish everyone a happy new year! ♥

So soft and cute.  Love the layers.
