The girl with 7 horses #1

Once upon a time there was a girl who had 7 invisible horses.
People thought she was crazy and that she in fact had 7 imaginative horses, but this was not the case.
When autumn came the girl spent a whole day washing all her clothes. She hung them on a string in her garden to let the gentle autumn sun dry them.
Out of nowhere, a terrible storm came and its fiercefull wind grabbed a hold of all her clothes and all seven horses (authors note: since they are invisible they didn't weigh much). The girl was devestated and spend all autumn looking for each horse spread around the country, wrapped in her clothes.
First finding: October 23th

There is a really lovely interview with me over at LIGHT MEETS NIGHT.
The author Georgia has said such nice things about me, people can be so kind sometimes. Here's a draft from the start of the interview, no one has ever called me a Latvian princess before!

"Ulrika Kestere is a girl with good taste. Since discovering her blog last year I have not stopped admiring the Latvian illustrator slash photographer’s creative input into the blogging hemisphere.

Childlike illustrations bring a novelty factor whilst her photographs have a certain dream like quality you cannot help but adore.
It is quite stereotypical to say her artistic abilities have a feminine approach, but as Uli herself describes how she is inspired mainly by ‘fairytales, pretty little cottages and animals’, the word feminine fits in quite rightly so.
I thought I would veer away from the high fashion attitude LMN usually adopts, and throw something a bit different into the mix. So it is, my interview with a Latvian princess."
