The Magical World of Ann Wood

Ship of Dreams, Winkin' Blinkin' and Nod - sailing the night skies to Never Neverland -- these are the magical, mystical places of my childhood that sailed immediately back to life the moment I discovered Ann Wood and her enchanting floating ships--




Her own place looks like what I imagine Wendy's room in the land of the lost boys to look something like -



Her workspace - a place where childhood fantasies are being spun into a beautiful reality-



Floating through the air above are dreams in the making -



A tapestry of vibrant hues which will become the sails that help take you there.





Once attached to the fragile vessel of paper mache



you will be able to sail away to places limited only by your imagination...


Through the skies, through time ...


Or perhaps you would like your new found treasure to be earth bound ...


part of a stunning vignette


...like this beauty that Ann Wood named "shipwrecked".

I want to live in a world where something that spectacular is what a shipwreck looks like. Scoot over a little Ann, is there room for me? I want to live in your lovely, lovely world of dreams.

Oh what a wonderful new world. I've popped over from Niartist and re-found your lovely blog and also this wonderful world of Ann Woods.
I don't know how I lost the link here but now I am back I will definitely bookmark. I do feel like I've escaped to a wonderful world full of fantasy and beauty.
