Dark Fairytales

Over the weekend, I was reading Angela Carter's collection of stories and I love how her tales depict a particulary dark fairytale. The characters are quite familiar but not so because they all have a twisted tale to tell. There's Snow White who was borne out of her father's fantasy and not her mother's, a Cinderella who was wed to a Marquise de Sade and so on But what I liked most is that her writings are so rich, she interweaves stories with luxurious elements like a Poiret white gown, a blood red ruby necklace and hundreds of keys that holds treasures.

On a lighter note, have you done your christmas shopping yet? I haven't and I'm absolutely in scrambles to make a list. My only complaint is that the variety of merchandise have become so generic or is it just me?

Happy Weekend everyone!

your title is so befitting your photos! lovely and mysterious at the same time...totally feel you on the generic gifts flocking everywhere. It's so difficult to find really nice but unique gifts these days.
