Victorian Mermaids

On a hot sticky day like today the lure of the cooling sea is loud and strong or is it the siren calls of the mermaids I hear?

  1. Love the Orange Fairy Book image. There is something beautifully eerie about the tail...

  3. Ooh, this post is perfect!

    As a child, I often dreamed of becoming a mermaid... and I can't even swim.

    The Victorian advert and John William Waterhouse painting are my favourites ♥
