Introduction Graphic designer by trade. Mother to Mab and Frick, my adorable cats. Love all things medieval - music, costumes, architecture and art. I hoard fabric like gold, old books, pretty tactile things; enjoy fairy tales and folklore, especially those of Celtic origin. This blog contains my inspirations from history to present, often exploring medieval-themed movies, books and fantasy costumes.
