Mary Poppins!10:07 AM
I remember when I first discovered Mary Poppins I thought she was so amazing. Flying with the umbrella! How much fun would that be? My brother thought that flying with an umbrella really seemed like a great idea as well. We lived in a ranch style home and we had really large old pine trees growing at the edge of the house. We used to climb up the tree and walk across a branch that rested on the rooftop. We then would run around or sometimes read a book on the roof. Looking back ... not the best idea, but it was a lot of fun. One day my brother took an umbrella up with him on his rooftop journey and luckily a neighbor stopped him before he jumped. I still wonder if the umbrella would have collapsed before he hit the ground. It was just one story ... he was light ... maybe it would have worked.
Here is a sneak peek at one of the items I found while out searching for treasures this week. Can you see her in the middle? It's a Mary Poppins spoon complete with her umbrella and little travel bag. I could not resist this little mismatched collection of flatware.
I'll take more photo's after I clean her all up and I'll show you some other finds I was happy to stumble upon.
