Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs updates for the month of August

I love to read about Disney - every evening I read many different websites that discuss all things Disney.  As I do, I often run across interesting articles related to Snow White.  So here it is, my first updates from the month of ... post!  I will provide a collection of links to different articles and sites that I found interesting this month.  Enjoy! (if you do enjoy, let me know in the comments and I will try to make this a regular post on my blog)

The OC Register had this article about the children of people who worked on Snow White - and yes, I considered trying to crash their dinner.  How wonderful that they have a tradition to get together!

National Coloring Book Day was in August and Disney Style had an article with coloring pages - including a great one of the Evil Queen.

Andreas Dejas wrote and article called "The Trouble with Cels" featuring some heartbreaking images of Disney cels that have deteriorated over time (including a Snow White one).

Filmic Light - Snow White Archive had a couple of items that peaked my interested this month including a toothpaste ad and a cast member belt buckle.

Disney style posted "13 Disney Things from Torrid you Don't Want to Miss" and I missed.  The seven dwarfs skirt is amazing...and sold out.

Also from Disney style is a collection of art from Artist Gabby Zapata that features a great Snow White inspired piece.

Davelandblog has some pictures from Disneyland in 1961 that include a Snow White operating the Snow White attraction!  Whaaa?

Next time you are in New Orleans be sure to stop by Storyland as featured in Davelandblog.  The Snow White cottage is so cute!  Wonder if one would fit in my backyard?

WDW fan zone posted about Target's new line of super cute and super comfy PJs - I love the dwarfs on the pants, but I didn't buy these pajamas - I actually am a morning person!

As you know if you ever read my blog or look at my instagram account, I have a tsum tsum problem and these new blind bag pins are going to be an issue for me - need the Evil Queen!

Snow White La Mode Lamp

Last month I received a new item to the collection: a 1938 La Mode lamp.  According to my collectibles guide book: "Figural painted plaster lamp is 3x3.5x7.25 tall to the top of Snow White, 9.75" tall to top of socket.  Underside has original paper label with company name and Disney copyright."

Now I need to find a shade!

Tsum Tsum Snow White

If any of you follow my instagram, you know that I love Tsum Tsum Snow White.  I, like many others, have spent more time than I will admit playing the addicting game.  I was recently thrilled to find out that it was lucky time for three Disney princess tsums (meaning you had a higher chance of getting on of these gals if you used points to buy a new character).

Well, lucky time is right!  I got Snow White!  When you use her during game play, the dwarfs pop up and clear additional tsums when you click on them.  Plus, notice how the screen becomes the forest woodland.

Jakk Series 3 Blind Bag

I was so excited to come across the series 3 Tsum Tsum mystery stack pack because it included a Dopey stack!  Unfortunately it took me one Jasmine, 2 Luckys, and 3 Tinkerbells before I got the Dopey.  (beware when feeling the package, the Diamond is not on Dopey's back and is separate from him.  He comes in 3 separate pieces with no bumps on the Tsum).  However, I did get him!

Click below for series one and two (no Snow White characters in either of these series)

New Snow White Book?

I follow The Disney History blog by Didier Ghez after finding his books "Walt's People" so fascinating.  Each book is a collection of interviews from Disney legends (animators, producers, directors, imagineers...).  I have found many useful interviews directly related to the making of Snow White and hope to catch up on my reading.  Volume 17 was just released this July.

Ghez posted an update about upcoming projects and I was thrilled to learn that he is editing about collection of interviews focused on the making of Snow White!  He expects it to be released this August or September with a volume 2 to come.  I can't wait to get my hands on this book!

I did a little searching and Ghez posted a link to a chapter of a Snow White book back in 2013 and I believe this blog is David Johnson's, the author.  It doesn't appear to have been updated much.

While we wait for the release of this book, if you are a Disney history nerd, check out the Walt People's series:
