The Hills Are Alive!


The Sound of Music inspiration of the day!  Maria is running through her meadows of Switzerland with guitar and blue striped bag in hand!  Don't you just want to frolic around like Maria?  She is skipping and singing, "The hills are alive...".
I thought about doing the "I am confident" song, but then opted for the main title song. It just seems pure Sound of Music-y.  It's hard to see in the photo, but I put the sheet music of the song on her guitar and in the grass by her feet. You have to look reallllly close. 

Maria's happy face.. of course, she has to have a flower in her hair. 

More songs from this beloved movie.. this is the "Climb Ever Mountain Dress". When one puts it on, they feel like they can fly after their dreams!  Sheet music from this song is in here as well as some Mozart thrown in. Nice to have Mozart and Rogers and Hammerstein in one dress.  This girl is in for lots of twirling and dancing under glimmering stars!  If you put on this dress, you may discover that you magically know how to play the piano.


"My Favorite Things" dress. " Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens, bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens.  Brown paper packages tied up with string.  These are a few of my favorite things!"  Oh, love this song!
Can just imagine Maria dancing around her bedroom with all the kids following her like little chicks!

Am getting prepared for an art show tomorrow in Crestline ( an area of Birmingham).  All the paintings are ready and excited about finding new homes.  I can imagine many will find homes in little girl's rooms, some in kitchens or family rooms, and some will travel to beach houses.  Then there are a few who will journey from room to room until their owner finds the perfect place for the painting to live happily ever after.

Happy start to your weekend!!
