Tomorrow is Solstice

My favorite character in Mid Summers Night Dream is Bottom. Now who would have guessed that the man who is turned into an ass by my next favorite character (because I love naughty little boys too) would be my favorite character. Poor Bottom, not. He gets treated to sweets and treats by the faeries who attend the Queen of the Fae, her majesty Queen Titania. And according to the title, this all happens on mid summers eve.

A love story inside a love story and a comedy inside a conundrum but my I love Shakespeare's view on the fae being like humans, envious, naive, fragile, strong and naughty.

Here is my rendition of Queen Titania's faerie bed with Bottom snoozing while he waits for his love.

Happy Mid Summer's Eve......


  1. Mid Summer's Eve... Wow this summer is zooming by! Your rendition of Queen Titania's bed is most awesome, complete with Bottom. I too love Shakespeare and have always wanted to do a production of Mid Summer set on an acient Irish island. Fun!
    Have a great day!
    Always, Queenie

  2. This is fantastic and so beautiful! You have done a great job...Congrats!!!

  3. Soooo cute !!! I love the fairy bed. Have a wonderful Solstice !!!

  4. Hee hee, love it! I saw a fab production when I was at school by the Royal Shakespeare Company in Stratford (we were close enough to be dragged down once a year for an educational performance)

  5. OH MY GOODNESS!! Would you believe I played Titania, Queen of the Faeries, in High School??? "The Moon, methinks, looks with a Watery Eye and when she weeps, weeps every little flower...lamenting some enforced Chastity." That is from MEMORY!!!! The ONLY line I remember!!!! LOVE YOUR BOTTOM!!! I mean your DONKEY!!! Ummm, NOT your BUM, although I imagine it is very nice as well.... HAHHAHHAHHAHA...I better quit while I'm ahead!!!

  6. so much fun going on at your house.

  7. Oma Linda, this is so cute! So much fun! I hope you had a beautiful Solstice ;o) Many bright blessings ;o)

  8. Oh Miss Oma Linda, this is too adorable! You did a beautiful job on Queen Titania's faerie bed and Bottom is so sweet. Hugs!
