The Snail Bride by alexandradawe The Snail Bride by alexandradawe
Watercolour, 14 x 10 inches

I can just about remember a faery story about a farmer who married a beautiful women, and discovered that his lovely wife was a snail who lived in the water barrel outside their home. I've been scouring my books but I can't find the original tale. If anyone has heard please let me know, I'm starting to think I imagined it!
