B is for...


Welcome to the next installment of the A to Z Blogging Challenge! For today's portion of the Once Upon A Time Character Alphabet, I present to you:


Belle of Beauty and the Beast fame! In the show, Belle is the local librarian in Storybrooke as well as the wife to her "Beast", Mr. Gold (aka Rumpelstiltskin - you'll see him later this month! Told you things get complicated...) You'll notice that this letter has two characters in it rather than just one like A had. That's because there are many characters in Once Upon A Time who have both a "fairy tale" persona and a "real world" one because of the curse that brought them out of the world of the Enchanted Forest and into Storybrooke in our world. Belle is one such character!

If you missed my previous posts, feel free to check them out below:
A is for...

Until next time!

  1. Awesome idea for the blog challenge! I'd love to get into cross-stitching but have no idea where to even begin. Any suggestions?

    1. Thanks so much! When I got into cross stitching as a kid, I started with some pretty basic kits I got at my local hobby shop (Michael's, Joann's, Hobby Lobby, etc.). It's not a difficult hobby insomuch as it is really just following a pattern and poking holes in fabric with needle and thread

  3. I initially thought your beads were french knots and I thought they were the best knots I had ever seen! I'm probably going to bead too (because I HATE french knots)...good job!

    1. Haha no...I can do a decent French Knot but I don't like them much. Substituting for beads in this piece I think is going to work so much better! Yay bling!

  5. I am pretty sure that in Once Upon A Time, it was Lacey French not Belle French

    1. Yes it was for a couple of episodes when she didn't remember who she was. The designer decided to stick with Belle since that's what she's been for the overwhelming majority of the show and I liked that too!

    1. Yep, an entire alphabet! I'm stitching them all on one piece of fabric so it will be a nice completed piece by the end of the month!
