DisneyBound posted a great outfit idea!  And a few Evil Queen outfits and one for the prince.

Disney Parks Blog put up a great piece of art counting down the 12 days of Christmas.  They also had a vote earlier this month on which new Alex and Ani bracelets to release - sadly, Snow White was not in the top three.

Andreas Dejas posted a beautiful Snow White Christmas card.

Speaking of Christmas Cards - D23 did an article on a variety of Christmas Cards.

I love finding great Snow White fan art and Dylan Bonner has posted an adorable Snow White and a really fun take on Disney Characters in classic Christmas movies.

Oh My Disney has a recommendation on how to make 2017 great - including advice from our favorite princess.

I love this picture of Snow White operating her ride at Disneyland.

Have you ever read Touring Plans Outlet report?  I have to admit, it is one of my favorite things to read.  This month there is a dwarfs Tee at the outlet.

Chip and Co showed off some of the new merchandise coming that includes a beautiful Snow White picture.

Jamberry nail wraps featuring Snow White are about to retire.

ABC family has a cute article on last minute shopping featuring Snow White.

Getting Ready for the Holidays with the Disney Store

November has flown by and we are now well into December.  I have been putting up the tree this weekend and that got me to thinking about the fabulous Snow White ornaments available from Disney Store online (many of which are currently on sale).  Check them out:
Isn't Dopey too cute?  Love that he moves.

Dopey is thinking about making those jewel eyes he is so famous for...

The queens robe looks so regal - even on a hangar.

This one is on my list!!

Snow White - so lovely.

Going To Guide

I was recently browsing on ETSY when I saw the most adorable Snow White and Evil Queen buttons.  I had to have them!  I looked around the shop and I fell in love with everything!  The artwork is just the cutest.    Check out the I heart going to Disneyland button with the Snow White and Evil Queen on my fan-girl backpack:

It turns out the art is featured in a guide book to Disneyland, so naturally I had to purchase my own copy.

Where was this book when I was a kid?  It is sooooo fun!  I have been to Disneyland a lot, being a local and former cast member, but it is still a wonderful read.  As you can see, I have a few Disney books in my library and I believe this book is a must have!  There are two chapters that include information about Disneyland, a chapter for each land, a built in scrapbook area, and an area of mini stories that attractions are based on.  It is a beautiful and creative book.  This would be such a wonderful gift to someone who is headed to the park for the first time.  (and given with some of hte buttons sold in the shop - so cute!) Here are a few of my favorite pages:

I ordered the book for Amazon and it wasn't in pristine condition when I received it - I wish I had ordered directly from Shannon on her website.  Then I could have had an autographed book, bookmark, sticker, and membership card.  I will most definitely order her next book (Disney California Adventure) directly from her website.

Snow White's Crocs

I was walking around an outlet and I discovered these in the Croc store:

I didn't even realize that Crocs had a deal with Disney.  I thought this was pretty cute!  I looked around on-line and it turns out they have had a bunch of little buttons you can add to the shoes as well as some Snow White shoes just for kids.  Where are the big kid versions? Kids get the cutest stuff!

Updates from Month of October

Wow, it's hard to believe that October is coming to a close.  What are you going to be for Halloween?  There have been a lot of great things out there about Snow White this month - check it out:

Lou Mongello on WDW Radio discussed moments in Disney history they wish they were a part of and I totally agree with one of them (being a huge Snow White fan and all).

Filmic Light had some fantastic posts about fabulous Snow White items that I must scour e-bay for now:
Vintage Italian Cuccu books by Salani
1990's Wrist Watches (I knew Disney Store was trying to bankrupt me in the 90's with the sheer volume of collectibles)
Spanish Sticker Collectors Album
A really interseting Montreal Newspaper article
A beautiful Bertelli Calendar
If Doc Brown ever stops by with a time machine I'm going back in time and ordering all the jewelry in this catalog!
These Snow White Aluminium sets are fantastic
These Post Toastie masks do show up on ebay from time to time
This snow globe is fascinating - I would have never guessed Disney would make merchandise of this scene - the one that terrified children in the movie theater.
Check out the special box made for the exhibit at the Walt Disney family museum.

I mentioned there might be an upcoming Snow White book a while ago - Didier Ghez posted about his upcoming projects which include Snow White interviews Volume 1.

WDW Fan Zone asked which Disney character you'd pick for president - Snow White was one of the ones suggested but I might vote for a package deal on the dwarfs!

This Fairy Tale Life had a look at the new 2017 Princess bridal gowns - including the updated Snow White.

Steve Thompson posted an adorable Snow White for #inkober

Disney Visa by Chase posted an article on where to meet our favorite princess in the Magic Kingdom.

Disney Style felt that Snow White's wishing well is a great place for instagram photos.  I love that spot in the park - it might be one of my favorite spots in Disneyland.

Long before there was instagram, people have been snapping photos there - here is a vintage shot of the Snow White wishing well area.

Check out this vintage theme park Sleepy!

If you had asked me ten years ago, I would have said there was no way I'd be a Hot Topic regular costumer - check out these shirts though - how can I not be?

Still trying to figure out what to do with your squad for Halloween?  Check out this post by Disney Style.

Or if you are going solo for Halloween - find your costume according to your sign here.

Disney Parks Blog posted pictures of dogs in costumes - that's just awesome in of itself - but check out the evil queen and Snow White - so cute!

Ashley Taylor drew a fabulous Disney Doodle of the evil queen.

You have to get over to Wonderground Gallery next month to check out Gregg Visintainer Poison Apple art.  It is amazing!  I love how the designs are actually hidden images.  I've bought quite a few of his pieces.

I recently was very excited about the Snow White Jamberry nail wraps - well now there are Evil Queen wraps!

Feeling crafty?  How about making this poison apple card?

D23 had three articles this month - all of which are in a member only area and I can't link them for you here:
* Get a Wildly Wicked Look inside Disney Villains
* 13 Characters that Makes our Spine Tingle
* 13 Classically Creepy Disney Park Attractions

Disney Movie Rewards

A while ago I finally decided to spend a few of my Disney Movie Rewards points on an exclusive poster by Eric Tan.  The package came and I am so glad I got this poster.  It is really beautify and printed on really high quality paper.  I already framed the print and am looking forward to finding somewhere to hang it.
