Sleeping Beauty Gift Wrapping Paper
Sleeping Beauty Gift Wrapping Paper

Having just sold some of my Sleeping Beauty wrapping paper, I decided Princess Aurora, as she has been known since the animated Disney film in 1959, deserved a post of her own.

The original story, The Beauty sleeping in the wood, or La Belle au bois dormant, was published by Charles Perrault in 1697 as part of his Histoires ou contes du temps passé, before being taken up by the Brothers Grimm.

According to ListVerse, the original story has unpleasant overtones in that ‘the young woman is put to sleep because of a prophesy, rather than a curse. And […] the king seeing her asleep, and rather fancying having a bit, rapes her. After nine months she gives birth to two children (while she is still asleep). One of the children sucks her finger which removes the piece of flax which was keeping her asleep. She wakes up to find herself raped and the mother of two kids’. Macabre, mais oui!

Monosyllabic Monday? I thought that if other bloggers can have Wordless Wednesdays, then I could have my version on a Monday.  This may be a one-off.  It all depends on what life throws at me. And that’s all I have to say!

Take care and keep laughing!
