I've been so out of the internet loop these last couple weeks, I haven't seen any of these. They are absolutely delightful!--as a whole collection of photographs, collages, drawings. The enormous tatooed grandmother, these wonderful hats, the sunset picture. I'm afraid I was grinning my fool head off while looking at and reading them that my kids thought I was a little strange....

Blue Rose - that reminds me of the 1940's film The Thief of Baghdad.

Also Beauty and the Beast.

C- There is also an earlier silent version of Thief of Baghadad, also quite wonderful for its "Arabian" fantasia.
