Away with the faeries, 1960s

I remember this fairy festival hung in a dark corner or hallway, maybe near the bathroom, so it got a lot of foot traffic but was difficult to see clearly.

It one was one of my favourites as a kid; and the only painting of grandmother’s (that I know of) which is of a fantastical nature. I still think it’s weird and hilarious.
