A rainy day with a princess
We have been following Queen Penelope- aka Instagram's @tothebigmoon, for a couple of years now, and she was in fact one of our very first customers. We asked her brilliant mum Nicole to share with us some secrets of how important an imagination is when living somewhere like rainy Scotland!
The sound of rain on our windows washing away all the hopes of adventures and possibilities is all too familiar here in Scotland, so we've learned to improvise a little.
All you need is some cardboard, (a lot of) cello tape, a crown (or two), a wand and an imagination.
You can add a sprinkle of fairy lights if you fancy digging into the christmas box.
On this rainy day Princess Penelope put on her best dress which is a beautiful 1980's piece from Rowdy Roddy Vintage and adorned her sparkly Fable Heart Ice Crown with wand to match...because every Princess needs a wand to rule!
There's something special and magical about piling all your favourite toys and books into a homemade den, dressing up and forgetting about the world. A bit of escapism from reality is good for the soul and I can't help popping on a crown myself to really embrace the moment.
The lopsided cardboard houses we build may not last long, but the memories will and our Fable Heart crowns will be around to see through many a home made den for years to come.
Thank you so much Nicole for sharing a day in the life of Queen P with us!
If you would like to send us photos and a blog submission of your little one enjoying their dress up clothes, please email firstname.lastname@example.org - we'd love to hear from you!
