Day 17

So day 17 is -An Art piece

So if you know anything about me you know I my favorite Disney movie. I am not a big Disney fan that believes in all the fairy tales and happily ever after. I LURVE Peter Pan. I love the idea of a magical place that you never have to grow up. I have a Tinkerbell tattoo on my shoulder that I knew I wanted it for 3 years before I got it. I do not regret it to this day. In fact I want to get to ole girl a "facelift" after 12 years of having it.

On my Honeymoon Hubs and I got several Thomas Kinkade prints. He had begun his Disney Dozen and we were interested to see if he would do a Peter Pan one. Imagine our delight when once back from our honeymoon we stopped in a Kinkade boutique and there was Tinkerbell and Peter Pan takes Flight to Neverland

Shut. the. front. door.

Every character is depicted and has so many details.

Here is some "scoop" on the picture:
Interesting Facts:
1. Tinker Bell and Peter Pan Fly to Neverland is the third release in Thomas Kinkade’s Disney Dreams Collection.

2. Thom has placed a total of 25 N’s in Tinker Bell and Peter Pan Fly to Neverland as tribute to his love for his wife Nanette, as well as in celebration for his 25 years as a published artist.

3. The clock tells the time of 8:02 — in the movie when Peter and the Darlings land on Big Ben, it is 8:04 — but Thom took artistic liberty and changed it in celebration of the year he and Nanette married: 1982.

4. Thom has incorporated many hidden Mickeys in Tinker Bell and Peter Pan Fly to Neverland, including a Mickey balloon seller in the city. Can you find them all?

5. Take a look at the upper left of Tinker Bell and Peter Pan Fly to Neverland and you will see Neverland, complete with an Indian encampment, Captain Hook’s pirate ship, the Mermaid lagoon and more!

6. Thom has created another Disney Dreams Collection narrative panorama — going beyond a single scene and telling the whole story through his inspiration from the original Disney sketches that the 1953 movie was based on.

7. The sailboat on the horizon is a tribute to Walt Disney himself. Walt loved being on boats – and Thom imagines that Walt is on this ship, sailing off on new adventures beyond Neverland!

8. The clouds represent the transition from the clearly detailed city of London below to the gossamer world of childhood dreams and fantasy — and Neverland — above. Where “time is never planned!”

9. Remember in the story that as the children return to London they look back to find the sailing ship “disappearing” in the clouds? What and who else are hiding in the clouds in Tinker Bell and Peter Pan Fly to Neverland? Can you find Captain Hook, Smee, and the Lost Boys? Do you hear the Crocodile ticking?

10. There’s also a tribute to the two previous Disney Dreams Collection “stars”! Can you find Snow White and Pinocchio?

I absolutely love it and we got a print for a GREAT deal a couple weeks ago and I can not wait to get it framed and hung outside of the "nursery room" in our house.


  1. That is so cool! I'm going to have to take a look at more of his Disney prints!

  2. He did the Snow White and Pinocchio first, them this one then Bambi. We found the print on Amazon for WAY less than we paid for any others and the print is better quality.
