Return for more Youthful Fantasies Brought to Life.

Have you ever fantasized about being a princess or a knight in shining armor? This month we’ll be taking another time travel adventure – back to the Middle Ages to explore castles, visit with the King and Queen, make confession to a monk or priest in an ornate cathedral, and watch the knights jousting, or serenading a princess up in her ivory tower.  Our fascination with the time period includes the various accutrements such as crowns, swords, suits of armor, and coats of arms. And of course we should go out to the countryside and see the common folk in their thatched roof cottages.
