Chi looks impatient. Probably wants me to announce the winner of Wednesday's giveaway...

Okay, the winner of the silver and petrified oak earrings from B Mila is.... 

Congratulations, allikally, you're the winner! Please email me at the address listed in the Contact box on the left, and I'll forward your info to the folks at B Mila who will send you your earrings! :)

I must say, there were some particularly awesome responses to the question of your favorite fairy tale. I love how everyone had such perfect reasons that a particular story resonates with them. And there were some kickass, left-of-center picks too -- Erica suggested the heartbreaking and beautiful Legend of Sleeping Bear, which all Michiganders are familiar with, Lisa  loves The Old Woman in the Wood, Lenora Jane digs some crazy Hans Christian Andersen story called The Wild Swans, Aimee loves Water Babies (Which I do too!!! Still have two well loved copies from childhood!), and our winner picked a Scottish fairy tale called The Light Princess. And obviously that's just a handful. Will any of you mind if I post about fairy tales some more next week, with some of your awesome insights? Keep telling me what you love about your favorite ones and link me up! I'll credit ya'll, you know I'm good for it.

Additionally, my soon-to-be sister in law Alessandra is a fan of this COMPLETELY BONKERS 1975 animated version of The Little Mermaid. Watch this awesomeness as you sail toward the weekend, and await the next giveaway, which will be very soon. :)

Oh, and my favorite fairy tale is Legend of Psyche. I'll tell you all about it next week, when you tell me more about why you love your own favorite. :)
