Fairy Tale Day

Today is Fairy Tale Day here at bearbits. The BBC decided it so that makes it real. And all the things we want to show you are real as well. Just like us. That makes them very, very magical!

We dare say that most of us have seen a rainbow. Even the CEO has. She took this photo we found snooping through her files. That’s not the part we want to show you.


But have you even seen a Moonbow? Yep, they do exist. They are really rare and there are only a few places in the world where you have a chance of seeing one. This Moonbow is in Kentucky.

You can see more photos here or read more about it here. We want to go see it for ourselves.

Next we discovered some real fairy tale houses, a few designed and created by Hugh Comstock in the 1920’s. They can be found in Carmel, California. Here’s a pretty cool looking one called the Hansel House.


You can take a virtual tour at this link or see more photos here or read more about it with photos here. We want to go see it for ourselves.

Of course seeing those photos made us think perhaps we could have our very own fairy tale cottage. I’m sure it wouldn’t cost very much at all. We saw some pretty cool ones at this location. Our favorite is called the Gwendolyn.

ftd_4 Don’t ya just love it? Don’t tell anyone, but when I grow up I am going to build this house, marry a fairy name Gwendolyn and live happily ever after in my storybook house called Gwendolyn. I think that would be neat-o-o-o.

Speaking of getting married, if I married a fairy, wouldn’t I have to have a fairy wedding? I found this photo of a real pretend fairy wedding. You should go visit this blog to see more cool pictures or even better, visit this website to see even more, especially the bride’s slippers.

Can’t you just imagine this whole thing with teddy bears?  That would be so cool.  It could happen, but then who would ever believe it?

  3. The wedding w/ teddies reminds me of:

    If you go out in the woods today
    You're sure of a big surprise.
    If you go out in the woods today
    You'd better go in disguise.

    For every bear that ever there was
    Will gather there for certain, because
    Today's the day the teddy bears have their picnic.

  4. Thank you SO much for all of the enchanting links, BBC. It was just the escape I needed today!

  5. Thanks for your nice words on my blog.
    Hugs Marja.
