My sweet niece Charlotte….
“Real isn’t how you are made,’ said the Skin Horse. ‘It’s a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real. ….but these things don’t matter at all, because once you are Real you can’t be ugly, except to people who don’t understand.” “He didn’t mind how he looked to other people, because the nursery magic had made him real, and when you are Real shabbiness doesn’t matter.” excerpts from the Velveteen Rabbit…my fave children’s story. Took these pictures of my best friends daughter Charlotte…she only stood still for milliseconds at a time, so, I had to keep snapping!
