How is this mid-February going on? Although temperatures are definitely chillier (this morning on my way to work I could feel the crisp air) and there is more or less the same going on around us, I think there is a magic spoonful of sugar that I take every morning which makes me smile more and realize that everything happens for a good reason after all. I think sweet Mary Poppins is ruling our house, I won’t complain because that’s practically perfect!
I always enjoy seeing other people’s collections (obsessions?) on the blogs, so I thought we could share our small haul of Mary Poppins that we usually have scattered around our living room. We have not gathered everything with a purpose in mind, just that Mary Popping happens to be such a special reference that I can’t resist when something about her gets in my hands.
Grab your parrot umbrella, magic bag and fly with us!
The last addition to our collection are the gorgeous books illustrated by Geneviève Godbout. I have coveted her Mary print (and every other of her prints for that matter) for a long time, thus when I saw during my daily blog reads (thanks Eleanore) that Geneviève had illustrated the books covers for this paperback edition, I ran to buy them.
A long time ago we were on the hunt of vintage cameras at one of our favorite stores in Barcelona, called Chandal, when we stumbled upon this viewfinder with a box of reels next to it for you to choose from. Imagine my face when I saw that they had a Mary Poppins reel! I think you can picture it, and see me thinking, well I’m sold with this viewfinder. In case you are curious, you were able to choose two while purchasing the viewfinder, the other one was: Lake Louise Canadian Rockies (Canada landscapes are a-m-a-z-i-ng).
If you take a closer look you will realize that the CD is in fact from the West End musical in London. Dani surprised me before starting the blog, for my 25 birthday, with the most amazing surprise: an impromptu trip to London with tickets for Mary Poppins. I can’t express how it all felt without getting teary-eyed. Happy memories indeed!
Spit-Spot! I’ll leave you till we meet again! Oh Mary, you have countless expressions to steal from you! Do you also have Mary Poppins themed items or have you got any in your wishlist (or Pinterest board) that you think we could add to our collection, we would love to see it!
