I’ve been trying so hard to get back into the swing of things. I was only gone for 3 1/2 days, but life at home went on without me. That means dirty dishes, laundry, and bathrooms, an empty refrigerator, a pile of mail, and Nolan’s untouched homework folder. Jacob is amazing and takes such good care of the boys when I’m gone and I don’t have to worry about a thing. This time was a little different though because all three of them were sick. I don’t blame them one bit for lying around the house all weekend. Except that now I’ve got to do all the catching up! I'm also throwing a baby shower on Saturday so I'm going party planning crazy! I’m so behind on blog reading, commenting and responding, but I will get to it soon!

You all know how much I love Disney so when I came across these photographs by Thomas Czarnecki, I kinda loved it, as depressing and disturbing as they are. From Enchantment To Down depicts fairy-tale heroines in scenes that are darker than their idyllic stories.

My Sweet Prince - Snow White

Happy End - The Little Red Riding Hood

Just a Trap - Alice

On The Other Shore - The Little Mermaid

Too Fast - Cinderella

Not So Romantic - The Beauty and the  Beast

Naughty Girl - Sleeping Beauty

One Last Wish - Jasmine

One More Trophy - Pocahontas

Then I found Dina Goldstein's Fallen Princesses.

And finally I saw these awesome minimalist movie posters on Etsy. I kinda want some!


What do you think about alternative takes on Disney?

I love all those alternative things. Have you ever seen the Annie Liebovitz photos? They're amazing. http://www.insidethemagic.net/2011/03/photo-archive-latest-in-the-annie-leibovitz-disney-dream-portrait-series-capturing-celebrities-as-colorful-disney-characters/

Did you know that Danielle at Secrets of a Sweet Southern Girl is hosting Fairy Tale week? This would line right up with that: http://www.sweet-southern-girl.com/

I am on the fence about the first series, but the 2nd one, while disturbing, was really great stuff. Snow White with all the kids killed me. So interesting!
