When I was a kid, I saw Labyrinth with David Bowie in the theatre twice, and at least three-hundred times on VHS tape. My best friend? She saw it six times. Six! We play-acted that movie - every scene, every line - for at least three years after. Back then, I could quote it word for word, and as Marc discovered when we watched it last year, I still can. When her first son was born, I scoured the Earth to find him a pair of red-and-white-striped Toby pajamas. I’m not sure what the attraction was exactly - as we weren’t quite old enough to be weirdly fascinated with David Bowie, so I guess it was the fantasy of it all - the idea of the fantastic!
the fire-people, the helping hands, and the Hoggles of Labyrinth, each with their own personalities and stories. Even more fantastical, each of our Volumes is left open to your imagination.
A few days ago, Marc cut out the latest edition of Fairy Doors (Volume Eight), which are uh-may-zing! Whenever we create a new product, one of us gets to create a sample “finished product.” I love our fairy doors, and each new one reminds me of something different. This Volume in particular, from the moment I saw the design, made me think of the cute little Labyrinth worm Sarah meets. You know, the one who says “Who? Me? No, I’m just a worm. Come inside and have a nice cup-a tea. Meet the missus.” I think the missus put this plant here for adornment, and perhaps this is the plant from which she makes her nice cuppa tea?”
