I love this photo by Hanna L. Everything about it is fantastic: the boots, the stars, the skirt, the girl and, of course, the tiara. It’s whimsy exemplified.

You can find the clever Ms Hanna {here}.

Hope everyone is having a nice Wednesday. The sky is rumbling in Los Angeles. Any minute it’s going to rain.

    I see Ms. Hanna has read Mary Poppins and was inspired by one of the illustrations. :o)

  11. Tina says:

    oh that's right:

    Then Jane and Michael saw a most amazing sight. As soon as she arrived at the top of her ladder, Mrs. Corry dipped her brush into the glue and began slapping the sticky substance against the sky. And Mary Poppins, when this had been done, took something shiny from her basket and fixed it to the glue. When she took away her hand they saw that she was sticking the Gingerbread Stars to the sky. As each one was placed in position it began to twinkle furiously, sending out rays of sparkling golden light.

    — Excerpted from "Mary Poppins" by P.L. Travers.

    I think we should follow her and Mary Poppins example and all hang our own stars in the sky. Beautiful. It makes me want to either cry or smile:) Either will be good. Hope you have a great day!xoxo
