Will you come on an adventure with me?
Looks spectacular, doesn't it?
I don't know about you, but I really want to find a way to get there....to Neverland...
And there is a way. A very special way through imagination and the words on a page...
So visit your nearest library (or your newly reorganized booshelf) and snuggle into your very special reading nook with your book of choice and a few friends to share the story ( in this case, Prince Eeyore and Toodles).
Remember that book I told you about in the last post that I ordered? Well, I started reading it and it's very good and humerus so far, I definitely suggest it :)
Suddenly, I felt myself being transported....
Through stars and clouds...
Where there is only imagination and you.
During that time, when I was absorbed in those pages and my mind immersed in the story of Kate, Michael, and Emma, unaware of anything, I was in my own world with the three beloved characters of the novel.
Would anyone like some bliss? 'Cause I've got plenty :)
And I glanced at my dresser and noticed something out of place. Can you spot it?
Here's a closer look.
With trembling hands, I picked up the scroll, which had so suddenly appeared on my dresser, and untied the ribbon.
(I tied the ribbon in my hair to keep it off of my face) Then I opened the piece of paper to reveal...
A treasure map and...a little heart shaped box.
I peeked inside the box...
To find a folded note and a shiny key.
This key unlocks the cage of a very reluctant pixie who will help you on your journey.
(Be careful of her—she becomes dreadfully jealous!)
And do say hello to Peter for me, should you see him! It’s been so long..you will need
the fairy for her dust so you can fly. Otherwise you shall never reach Neverland! Her cage is
on the map—you will have to find it from there. Search for the second star on the right
after you have Tinkerbell. Good luck!
I stared at the words, dumbstruck, and a smile crept into my face. I took a good look at the key....
And swooned. Well, if I was going to Neverland, I had better get something appropriate on! So I threw on a frock...
I am ready to fly! Now about finding Tinkerbell...
Any ideas? I'm lost...
Follow the map, you say?
Well, that's easier said than done.
Wish me luck on this daring voyage!
You see, my friends? I love reading! I was able to find a treasure map to Tinkerbell, ultimately leading me to Neverland...all because of books.
Imagination. That is the key. (Teehee--that pun was unintended.)
I have tried my hand at drawing lately...I love drawing Disney characters. They are my favorite :) I am still learning, but hopefully with time, I will improve.
Wish me luck on my next drawing escapade!
I guess the purpose of this post is to encourage you find your Neverland through imagination and reading. So, grab your favorite reading buddy and head off to your cozy reading nook and open a book and fly away! Tinkerbell's only around Mermaid Cove and with your special key, anything is possible :)
Also, congratulations to Jenn and Mr. G from Broomsticks and Lace for winning the A Fanciful Twist elfin giveaway from Vanessa! Willa has found a very good home :)
Your dream boat is here to take you to the second star on the right! Enjoy your trip!
Tell me all about your adventures when you get back, won't you darlings?
Toodles and ta-s,
P.S. What wouldn't I give to live in these wonderfully Simply Shabby Chic themed rooms...sigh. Swoon.
P.S.S. Which would you rather visit? Neverland or Wonderland?
P.S.S.S. What book are you reading right now? Oh please, do share, silly bears!
P.S.S.S.S. (Listening to Disney songs right now...) I have been listening to a lot of Mindy Gledhill lately. Her button and a link to her blog is on my sidebar. I especially enjoy Hourglass, (Neverland and Peter Pan reference in that song, yay!) Anchor, Feather in the Wind, Whole Wide World, All the Pennies, Crazy Love, Winter Moon...all of them, really! What about you? What are your favorite songs?
