When I was a child I thought Grimm was just GRIM misspelled! How I loved their dark tales. Happily ever after was never guaranteed! Looking forward to your Grimm stockings! Not many days left!ReplyDelete
Hi Candy Thanks for stopping by! Yes i made the same connection too. I actually looked up the word GRIM to see if it came from the GRIMM brothers, but it's just coincidence!ReplyDelete
