The House of Fairy Tales is a very spacial place. Their Candlelit Matinee last Saturday at Shunt proved that creativity is an epidemic running through 16-21 year olds.  While shadow puppets danced on the walls, I sat in the middle of a huge dressing up box, where the clothes flew over my head with busy fingers, making looks by cutting and sewing, and posing for another group of people, who were drawing portraits, around a dinner table, complete with candle sticks.

I was hanging out with the quiet people. Amidst the chaos, we crocheted mushrooms, which sometimes turned into rings, or flowers and even an octopus!

Thank you House of Fairy Tales, it was great to spend a day in the real world.
