I discovered illustrations by Adrienne Ségur on a flea-market at Castries (Hérault, France).
I was really taken with this drawing from an old fairy tale book.
I could get two engravings from "The Snow Queen and Other Tales" that were put under glass.
The saleswoman kindly got them out of their frame and sold them to me for one euro each.
I was in seventh heaven ! A real fairy tale !
If you appreciate, as I do, the talented work of this illustrator, you can visit the following sites :

Adrienne Ségur illustrations
To illustrate this enchanting theme, I put an old silver-plated tray - bargain-hunted in my village last summer - on a carpet of snow.
This tray was predestined to my collection of mercury candelabras.
Ah... the mood is festive !
