Well, almost random...

This is one of the windows in the castle of Sleeping Beauty in Disneyland and depicts the three fairies Flora, Fauna and Merriweather. The original story had thirteen fairies and because the King only had twelve golden plates, only twelve fairies were invited, leaving the most evil one out. Which of course caused a massive rise in imported yarn. I do understand Disney though, thinking of names for all those fairies would have been some task!


  1. I think I do remember that the original story had thirteen fairies! Disney does change most of the fairy tales...the Little Mermaid didn't have such a happy ending!

  2. That is interesting information.
    Love the window.


Any weighty (and not so weighty) comments are welcome!
