I was asked what my favourite fairy tale is.  Each one brings it’s own set of memories.  I love the detail of the Disney ride of Peter Pan, and as a child I often tried catching dust particles in the air (pixie dust!)  and tried to think happy thoughts when I jumped off the bed.. (it’s a good thing, I never tried the roof!)  but Captain Hook surely gave me nightmares!   My husband claims I’m like the princess and the pea, as I must have a very comfortable bed.   Having a birthday cakes of Thumper the rabbit from Bambi, and Prince John sucking his thumb  from Robin Hood.  I sucked my thumb till I was five, so I really afraid when it came to cutting that special cake of  Prince John.    Many Disney movies, have given me many magical moments and memories!  One of my all time favourites, that I have learn to appreciate even more as I have gracefully aged, is “Mary Poppins”.     I wish I could snap my fingers and the toys would be put away.  I thought it would be lovely to jump into a sidewalk picture and become a part of the action, dance with chimney sweeps on roof tops, take my laughter to greater heights,  feed the birds, and of course, go fly a kite!  Mary gives us hope and optimism which are powerful tools in the face of hard times, to not judge people, to be generous, to learn to value each other, and see magic every day.   I feel a bit like Mary Poppins, when I set up for a craft fair, and the jewelry keeps coming out of a container, it doesn’t seem to stop!

The author of  Mary Poppins, was Pamela L. Travers, but she was born as Helen Lyndon Goff  on Nov 9, 1899.  She wrote Mary Poppins in 1934, and died in 1996, at the age of 96.   She wrote about Fairy tales how they, ” live in us, endlessly growing repeating their themes ringing like great bells.  If we forget them, still they are not lost.  They go underground, like secret rivers and emerge the brighter for their dark journey.”.   We all need a Mary Poppins said Thomas Schumacher, “Someone to love us unconditionally, to be magically, but not too sappy, to enchant us, and to make everything right, and then to leave us to do it on our own!”

    Thank you, thank you, thank you! I’m so happy I won. I never win anything. Except a bag of diapers at a welcome wagon baby shower and when I heard my name I thought they were asking me to be quiet as I was visiting with my friend and didn’t realize they were announcing that I had won a draw. But I digress… I am definitely picking the pirate belt. Peter Pan and all… Thanks Christina. You are one of the most generous people I know.

  2. Congratulations!! You are mighty generous too!

    Stay tune to future giveaways!

    Congrats Jacqueline. That is awesome to hear that someone who nevers wins things did! I like hearing that! I am sure who ever gets the belt will be thrilled to pieces!

    Christina, this was an awesome idea and I liked reading everyone’s reason why they liked a particular fairy tale. Thanks for inviting me to be a part of it!

    • Jacqueline, picked the pirate buckle, very fitting with the her love of “Peter Pan” and with a Large belt, so it would fit most of her boys in that age range.
      I always would love for you or others to join in the fun! Stay tune….as I will be having another giveaway soon…have something for stampede, but I’m still trying to figure out what the requirements are…perhaps…Favourite western movie, or movie star, hero/villain.
      Now, I have to get busy before stampede hits!
