The title of this post draws inspiration, obviously, from Maria’s song in The Sound of Music. While I was making Sunday’s post it occured to me that I could make a similar “moodboard” inspired by this lovely song. As I’ve said, early autumn has me thinking about simple pleasures and little things that make life easier during the cold season, and since I’m collecting inspiration from everywhere, this song seemed like a perfect fit.
As you can see, here I’ve put everything that Maria mentions in the song – nothing has been left out. 😛 Meanwhile, I advise you to surround yourself with your favorite things, snuggle down and prepare for hibernating… although weather is still quite warm and it’s a long-ish way until we bring out the cosiest coats from our wardrobes, you can already smell autumn in the chilly evening air and days that are getting shorter and shorter…
Raindrops on roses
And whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite thingsCream-colored ponies and crisp apple strudels
Doorbells and sleigh bells
And schnitzel with noodles
Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings
These are a few of my favorite thingsGirls in white dresses with blue satin sashes
Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes
Silver-white winters that melt into springs
These are a few of my favorite things!
