Random Thoughts: Awesome Book Covers-- Fairytales

How rotten would I be if I didn't do this again? =) I think this will be my new weekly Sunday post. (You're welcome.)

I'm finding it strangely theraputic to look through Pinterest for pictures that might make great book covers. Of course, it's also making me covet these beautiful dresses!

I thought these pictures really capture the essence of fairytales. And of course, my over active imagination is spinning away thinking about the would-be story behind each of them.

The Frog Prince:

12 Dancing Princesses:

Cinderella:

Snow White:

Random Fairytales: Help me think of the stories for these! My mind went blank, but I know there are stories for these.

The last three are "Fairer-Than-a-Fairy" (can be found at this link if you are unfamiliar with it: http://www.mythfolklore.net/andrewlang/029.htm), "The Impossible Enchantment" (http://www.mythfolklore.net/andrewlang/219.htm) and "The Snow Queen."

Lovely pictures ... and I can see most of them being cover art for the Fairy Tales you chose, although the "12 Dancing Princesses" one could probably work for "Sleeping Beauty" as well.

Oh! I just thought of a better Fairy Tale for the first of the last three pictures: The Evil Enchanter! (Link here, although it has a different title ... I like the title that it had in the book I fist found it in over this title: http://www.mythfolklore.net/andrewlang/362.htm)

What a fantastic idea! I love the third Cinderella photo and the first Snow White photo but really they're all absolutely gorgeous!
