Mary Poppins.. how I like her.



Both shots taken after breakfast in Northbridge yesterday. I was happy to come across Mary Poppins minus the rifle below, je préfère MP portrayed as above with flowers and bird.. there's no way you'd catch 'Miss practically perfect in every way'  flying over the rooftops totin' a rifle :) Both created by talented artist JXD, whose unpredictable stencils pop up all over town. Happy Monday, take care and stay safe..

"Why, it's the most disgraceful sight I've ever seen, or my name isn't Mary Poppins"..

  3. I agree, no rifles for Mary! The top one is more like it.

  4. Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.

    Actually she carries a spy umbrella that functions as a sword, rife, or little old ladies umbrella club. Just teasing. I cannot understand why any one would want to draw Marry Poppins with any kind of a weapon even if an umbrella could be used to hit someone.

  5. The second one was while she was touring the States.

  6. I like the second one best but not so keen on the gun.

  7. Ah, Mary Poppins, a simpler time, perhaps, when she was active back in the 60s, but we had Vietnam going on and the Cold War, so that wasn't good either. When did we decide that guns were somehow good, when they are made expressly for the purpose of killing other people (not counting the hunters, of course, although who the hell needs to hunt these days - it's not like the supermarkets are running out of food?)

  8. Mary Poppins avec son fusil, aurait été la bienvenue à Paris pour protéger tous ces jeunes tués par les djihadistes :(

  11. I can't see MP toting an AK40. Besides which you'd need both hands..

  12. Big smile, big love. I think I know all the songs by heart, still...

  13. Well, these days, maybe even Mary feels the need to pack some heat.

  15. Well, I'm not so sure. If it is to scale that hummingbird is monstrously large.

  16. The second Mary is just not for me.

  17. A sad state of affairs when one think Mary Poppins must carry a gun.

  18. Unforgettable Mary Poppins, nice post!

  19. Classic woman, which everybody has to like...also I do.
    I love these figures.

  20. Artistically I like the second one but hate that she has a gun. Pity to spoil a childhood favourite with adult violence.

    ReplyDelete
  21. One of my favourite movies ever! You can't hear the songs and NOT smile. Too bad someone showed her with a gun, but we know how she really is. :)

  22. The first image is delightful and a wonderful find. The second one...not my sort of art.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I prefer the first one, have seen to much rifles this weekend.....

    ReplyDelete
  24. Agree totally Grace. The flowers are much more appropriate.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Love the first one. The second image is strange and disturbing.
    Have a great week!

  26. Mary Poppins with a rifle? Thanks NRA!

    ReplyDelete
  27. i love mary poppins too! sad to see that she has to resort to carrying a gun now-a-days :(

    ReplyDelete
  28. For sure that's NOT Mary Poppins. Beware the imposters!!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Love especially the first one, Grace :-)
    The gun, though... kinda weird. Or sad.

    ReplyDelete
  30. This is so nice and unexpected!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Nice to see one of Mary Poppins.
    Yeah, the rifle does look 'not quite right in her hand.' :) I wonder what the artist is trying to say.
    Great find. :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. Such nice murals - both are great!
    Have a Great Week!!
    Peace :)

  33. Wonderfully conceived reflecting the present scenario...

    ReplyDelete
  34. Couldn't imagine Mary Poppins with a riffle...

  35. Apparently the sick, twisted side of my personality still responds to Mary Poppins flying around packing heat. The hummingbird is sweet but the automatic weapon still has me laughing. Not that I'm a fan of arms, but the contrast is too funny. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.

  36. Mary Poppins- my childhood heroine. Nowadays equipped with a gun? Ok - maybe she makes a start in dumping all weapons into the oceans .
    I love both images.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Oh me too, always have and always will. I sure enjoy the newer versions of a Mary Poppins cousin if you will, good old Nanny McPhee!
