celebrating Hans Christian Andersen's birthday

I wish I had celebrated Hans Christian Andersen's birthday with more flourish, but I have been a very busy bear today! It's the first day of the Easter holidays, so I've been making lists galore, and running errands, plus having a day of DIY and tidying. And then I had an accidental nap, but now I'm here and I'm ready to find some pretty things to help celebrate his birthday...

~ Thumbelina ~

~ The Little Mermaid ~

Thank you kindly for including my little flower felt pendant - now I will always associate it with Thumbelina.
