It is indeed a pleasant surprise to see a designer with a sense of humour, clearly exhibited in their designs. As you will be aware form the many bloggers posting about Donna Flora, she makes truly elegant and luxuriously finished dresses. However, she also makes the quirkiest dresses, all accessorised!

During my recent travels, I discovered a door. Upon opening this, I fell through a warp in the space/time continuum and arrived in the realm of Empress and Hierophant, a creation of the gifted duo of Immortalis and Alchemy Cyannis.

A Door Through time

I was greeted by a soft drizzling rain, tumbling waterways and beautiful views. And sheep.

A Door Through Time

There is great pleasure to be found in soothing rain. Having come from a country constantly in drought, I appreciate rain.

A Door Through Time

The landscape I emerged into reminds me greatly of what I imagined middle ages Europe to be. Or modern day England 🙂

A Door Through Time

A small footbridge over the river has fallen into disrepair, nevermind, the shallows are fine to wade through
A Door Through Time

I have to show you a close up of this exquisite jewelry, created by the talented Maizon Rayna of Terra D’ombrA. Her style is unique, detailed, and elegant.

A Door Through Time

Alas it is time for me to leave the dwelling of the Alchemists. I will return, soon.
