Peasemore Steals the Pea by WildWoodArtsCo Peasemore Steals the Pea by WildWoodArtsCo
"The princess had had enough! Just because she got caught out in the rain that ONE time and some bright spark had come up with the idea of putting a pea in her bed to prove her status, now everyone thought it was a big joke.

She was sick of the sleepless nights, sick of the bruises and, most of all, she was sick of the sniggering. People would sneak a pea under her mattresses at least twice a week - just for fun!

So she enlisted the help of her little friend Peasemore who would search her bed each evening and retrieve any nasty peas. And Peasemore's reward for doing this important task? He ate the pea for supper with bramble cakes and some elderberry tea."

This is my entry for the :iconchildrensillustrator:'s April theme - the Princess and the Pea, though I have strayed from the original story a bit...

Original is 5x6 inches, painted in watercolour on hot-pressed 140lb paper.

Original has been sold.

this piece is available as a fabulous solid wood jigsaw puzzle from [link]

Also located on the property is the spring for which the center was named. Tayamentasachta is a Delaware indian word which means “never ending waters”.
