M is for Mirror, Mirror

I love mirrors. I have one in every room, mainly for decorative purposes.

There are various superstitions regarding mirrors being gateway to other worlds. The story that comes to mind is 'Through the looking glass' by Lewis Carroll. A wonderful classic full of imagination in a fascinating world Alice steps into.

 Others believe if you have the unfortunate luck of breaking a mirror, you will have seven years of bad luck. It is also believed that when you look at a mirror, it shows your true self.

Can a soul be trapped in the mirror *shudder* Can mirrors interact with someone's soul?  Maybe that is why in the myth says that a if you want to know if someonw is a vampire, use a mirror to check for their reflection.

Superstitions  and Myths aside, anyone watched Mirror, Mirror, played by the wonderfully talented Julia Roberts?  On this trailer, she says she'll marry the prince, gives him a love potion, only to find out it's a potion for puppylove. :D and the prince is whining all over the place. I, for, one look forward to watching it. I would like to share the trailer with you courtesy of Youtube.

                                            As a girl who grew up reading fairy tales, I did enjoy Snow White and her army of dwarfs. very cute. mmmh I wonder if a time is coming for Beauty and The Beast cinematic retell? I sure look forward to that one. :)

What is your favourite fairy tale?

What do you see when you look into the mirror?
