Community description:a fantastical intersection of words & pictures
"If you are a dreamer, come in,
If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar,
A hope-er, a pray-er, a magic bean buyer…
If you’re a pretender, come sit by my fire
For we have some flax-golden tales to spin.
Come in!
Come in!"
— Invitation, by Shel Silverstein

Each flax-golden tale consists of a photograph by Carey Farrell accompanied by an original ten-sentence short story by Erin Morgenstern.
New tales are posted each Friday.

About the Artists:

Erin Morgenstern is the storyteller, weaving little bits of word whimsy and sending them off into the wilds of the internet with photographs to keep them company. She also writes novel-shaped tales, paints pictures, wrangles kittens, confuses people by changing her last name and burns easily. Currently, all of this is accomplished in Salem, MA with copious amounts of tea. She blogs about writing & kittens & whatnot on

Carey Farrell is the person behind the camera. When not being a photographer, she is a singer, a writer, a redhead, a pirate, a guitarist and a pre-school teacher. Not necessarily in that order, and usually not all at the same time. She sails the windy seas of Chicago, and elsewhere on the internet you can find more of her photographs here on Flickr and on
