More fairies...


Found an article on the impending release of the Fairy Chronicles series in Publisher's Weekly.

You can read it
here.






Also, Terri Windling (of Endicott fame) is selling her Dartmoor cottage. Would that the fairies made me enough money to take her up on it!

- House-trained Goblins Seek Room-mate


Want to own a 16th century fairy tale cottage in England, complete with goblins on the kitchen walls painted by Brian Froud, Alan Lee, Charles Vess and other artists? Here's an extremely rare opportunity to do so. The cottage is located in the middle of a small, bucolic country village at the edge of Dartmoor...perfect for a writer, painter, or dreamer seeking inspiration in the countryside. More information is available on Phillip Fowler's website.

*sigh* How would THAT be?.. Do click on the link for more amazing pictures...

Ohohohohhh... *much droolage*

Wouldn't that be loverly.

Some day I am going to have to own a house (as opposed to just renting one) so I can take a shot at mural-painting a room. Just the thought of that is very appealing, even if I hardly know which end is up with paint.

Oh wow!! I can imagine Y~O~U~ living there and creating all your illustrations!The inspiration would come out from the walls that thatched roof that neighborhood can you imagine the English gardens!!! Perhaps I should consider living there! hugs NG
P.S. Take time and get out into your garden!

Oh wow I really wish I could buy that cottage how amazing. Imagine if I owned it, wow, I'd let you come and visit [and your family] lol!

I have read through all that's been written up about the fairy books you are illustrating, and it is a wonderful story, all in all!
I wish you huge success, as I am sure will come. I would have loved as a child to read those books.
The fairy tale cottage, well, so far I resist even looking at the website, and simply enjoy the picture with the goblins.
How many more days to Italy?

When are you moving (the cottage is so you)? And will Loreena McKennitt be playing in the background? I just heard an interview with her on CBC radio and thought of you. She talked about how her travels have influenced her music and played/sang a beautiful song live.

Great article Tara, I wish you every success with the books. All your hard work will surely pay off.

Fantastic cottage. Just out of my price-range sadly:¬(

Wouldn't that be fun! If it was mine you would all be welcome to come, stay and play!

(I think we could take over a whole village)

A 60-book series! Wow! I'm presently at the point that when I finish the next thing I've got no assignments. This may be good and it may not be. Right now I believe it is -- a few weeks from now . . .

Someone linked me to the cottage sale a few months ago so it's been on the market for awhile. A quaint village is where I should be. A place with a slow pace and mild climate. It's a little like that here but it could be slower and milder.

Lucille just told me you had this link, how wonderous!!! I adore Terri's art and writings, but wonder 'why' is she selling this amazing house? Oh to be rich and in England... sigh...

Ooh! Froud faeries in the kitchen. Dinah wants!I've just sent the link to a friend who has a bookshelf full of this sort of thing.
Years ago, I had a holiday cottage not far from there, but never went to Chagford. What a twerp!
