The Princess and the Pea


 The Real Princess, more commonly known as The Princess and the Pea, is a fairytale by Hans Christian Andersen in which a prince's sole criteria for marriage is that his bride must be a "real princess."  Her true princess-ness can be determined by her delicate constitution and sensitivity to the most minute discomfort.


While the Princess and her bad night of sleep may not be the most desirable role model for our daughters, it's a story that captures the imagination nonetheless.  And now one lucky little girl can play out the story over and over with her very own Princess and the Pea set!



She has 12 mattresses (Sorry, Hans...your 20 mattresses and 20 featherbeds were a bit much for me!), a tote bag, 3 peas, and a card printed with the original story.  And she was a birthday present for a now-4-year-old little girl this past weekend.


The Princess and her mattresses were from the More Softies Only a Mother Could Love and the tote is my own design.

Kids Clothes Week Challenge

I always seem to hear about the Kids Clothes Week Challenge too late!  But this time I caught wind of it well in advance, so I'm planning to join in!  I'll need to take inventory of my kids warm weather clothes -- not sure Miss M needs much of anything!  And then make my plan of attack.  I'll keep you apprised of the situation!

P.S.  Pardon the dust as I slowly get my blog re-organized!
