Fairy Tale Finds - Rapunzel

Today's finds are from Rapunzel. Poor girl: given away by her parents for a craving, locked in a tower all her life, forced to use her hair as a ladder, abandoned pregnant in a desert where she wanders with her two children for years...a pretty dreadful life! And can you imagine having to wash that hair!? So here's a little homage to Rapunzel, it's a good thing her story has a happy ending.

I think this illustration sums it up perfectly!

If you want to walk a mile in her shoes you'll need the hair,
