I BELIEVE IN...
What do you believe in?
Or rather what did you believe in when you were young?
The Renowned Miniaturists’ Carol & Neal Pruzan with the staff at the Yorktown Museum have assembled wonderful scenes showing examples of Magic, the Tooth fairy, Dragons, Fairy Tales, & Love ~ who doesn’t believe in LOVE to name a few.
