Vintage Fairies and a bit of Yeats

Princess Edane... heard a voice singing on a May Eve like this, and followed half awake and half asleep, until she came into the Land of Faery, where nobody gets old and godly and grave, where nobody gets old and crafty and wise, where nobody gets old and bitter of tongue.  ~William Butler Yeats, "The Land of Heart's Desire," 1894


These are just wonderful and enchanting vintage fairy pictures that I hope you will enjoy.  
May you days be filled with the magic and laughter of the Fae Folk ... Always !
