What if?

What if your parents were magic professors?

So you lived in a little cottage...

found here

with garden gnomes prancing about...and teetering bookshelves piled high with books about fairy tales and magic?

With maps leading to fairy tale treasures, like Snow White's wishing well?

Found here

Or Cinderella's glass slippers?

Found here

What if your parents trained you to become a wizard? And they showed you their special magical devices? 

Like the Time-Turner...

And you could pick out your own wand?

What if Nicholas Flamel was an old friend?

And you had the book of Eternal Life?

What if you lived in a castle and wore poofy dresses?

Found here

What if they sold pixie dust at Wal Greens?

Found here

I guess the point of this post is just...imagine what life would be like infused with the magic and whimsy of stories and fairy tales. Now imagine that you have the power to make that possible.All you need is a Neverland ticket....(feel free to copy and paste that ticket anywhere you'd like :)

Keep creating, friends :)

Hugs and hexes,


P.S. I am going to start reading The Alchemyst: The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas will know if I end up liking it if it appears in my blog sidebar under book list. :)

P.S.S. Leave a comment below and tell me which Harry Potter item you would rather have out of the following things: Invisibility Cloak, Time Turner, Marauder's Map, love potion, or 10 second pimple vanishing cream.

P.S.S.S. What fairy tale most intrigues you?


  1. Hey Jess!
    I looved this post! Just the thought that life could be more intriguing that you could possibly imagine is wonderful! To find out that your parents could teach you spells, potions, and magical musings gives me a chill :)

    If I could pick i would want the 10 second pimple vanishing would come in handy! But the invisibilty cloak would be awesome!And of course the time-turner... Ok, this is way too hard to choose. Can't I just have all of them?

    Oh, and I like the Little Mermaid best...cuz my name is Ariel! And also becuase I would love to be able to live under water, talk to fish, and explore sunken ships. Sounds like the life, right? :)

    Well, this was an intriguing post! I hope to see you soon darling!

    xoxo, Ariel

    ps. I am looving The Luxe series, but I also am antsy to reread Hunger Games, it is just soo good!

  2. Oh yay!!!

    This is soooo wonderful. I love you way you think. You are such a lightbearer in a world that is so often so dark. I think that you're brilliant to say basically that if you imagine it, you can have it. Why live life wishing? Make it happen! If you want to have magic and silliness in your life, by all means have it! I don't believe in restrictions :)

    What a lovely dream, and that wee cottage. Ahh, what an aspiration. Magical professor parents! What a life it would be to be born into a household with rooms and shelves brimming with books. And it's more than likely that people who are born into those circumstances don't take advantage of it at all. That is just a huge dream for me. To be surrounded by rows and rows of books. Bliss :)

    Please tell me about all of your wands! I was just flabbergasted at the sight of all of them! I only have one, Hermione's, but I always want to buy more! They look so dreamy all together, and it just makes me think that anytime you wanted to create a bit of magic you could prance over to your wand container and take your pick. What a concept!

    I think if I could have any of those magical items I would be torn between the invisibility cloak and the time turner. In theory the invisibility cloak sounds awesome, and Harry certainly put it to good use. But I can't think of what I would ever have to use it for in real life... But a time turner! I could do everything I wanted and never have to worry about what time it is, or losing sleep, or getting homework done, or going to class. I could do EVERYTHING!

    I have been fascinated by Nicolas Flamel for a longgggg time. I remember researching him when I was about 13 or so. He was a really cool guy actually. He did indeed live to a super duper old age and even many many years after his death there were still sightings of him and his wife. And his home in Paris is now a restaurant! Which I will definitely be visiting one day.

    My favourite fairy tale has got to be this one:

    It is quite literally a FAIRY tale. And since I am of Irish extraction, I suppose I have a bit of a bias towards it. Now it's not a traditional fairy tale, but seriously I recommend you watch it! You'll love it. The best part is when Mickey is dancing with Princess Jessica (oh yes, her name is Jessica ;)) and he says "You shine Princess mine, you shine!" Oh bliss. I am in love. Haha!

    Lots of love,

  3. You have wands and a time turner!!! How wonderful!!!
    I love your neatherland ticket, its wonderful!! My husband just got done reading and whole Flamel series and enjoyed it (it's not Harry Potter so don't be disappointed that way)
    Decisions, decisions...
    Invisibility Cloak
    Hansel and Gretel
    Have a really great day!
    Always, Queenie

  4. Found you quite by accident and I love the post and the cottage is wonderful. Imagining a world so different sounds so adventurous! I love maps, they hold such infinite possibilities for adventure don't you think? Fairy tales is a different sort of pickle because I love them all whether it's the wonderful hopeful version or the historical version. What I love best is when one is redone with a twist. I'm not sure I could pick a favorite, does Alice in Wonderland count?

  5. Hello dear! Just letting you know you won a blog award on my blog and the details are at the bottom of my latest post!

  6. Where's the rest of your story? It sounds like a wonderful beginning...

    I'd choose the invisibility cloak and my favorite fairytale has been and always will be Snow White. Am I the only one who loves to watch Once Upon A Time? :)
