A fairytale from the garden...vintage rose

...Once Upon a Time there was a girl who loved to wander through the rose garden just beyond the grand old castle gates. She loved to stop and admire all the big open flowers and inhale their lovely scents. Often she would watch Prince Alexander ride past in all his finery on his white stallion. He was very handsome and she daydreamed that one day he would see her and stop and pick her a beautiful old fashioned rose and fall in love with her and they would live happily ever after...

Once upon a time there was a girl right here who had a thing for fairy tales and kids book illustrations and fantastical movies. Her modern day hero of these fantasies and fairytales is director extraordinare Tim Burton.
I love his style, it's a feast for the eyes, it's dark, gothic,romantic, whimsical and wonderful! I'm usually the first to the cinema to see anything new he has produced, but for some reason ( a bub maybe) we missed The Corpse Bride and I finally got to see it on dvd this past weekend! It was everything I had hoped for and I love watching all the extra bonus bits too where they show you how everything was made! And an Extra bonus, Johnny Depp! Burton masterpieces I love ,here's a taste... edward scissorhands, sleepy hollow, big fish, the nightmare before christmas, ed wood, james and the giant peach,charlie and the chocolate factory and beetlejuice just to name a few of my favorites!
