Favorite Things

In my last post of 2010, I would like to share a little song I have written to be sung along with the melody of the original "My Favorite Things" by Maria in the famous old time movie, a Sound of Music.  It is both a fun play on words and also a tribute to the amazing woman who's real life story inspired the movie named Agathe von Trappe, who just recently passed away.

While I sit and reflect on the year past, all I can really think about is how happy and excited I am for all the New Year has to offer!  There were many challenges in 2010 both personally and professionally for me.  I mean, let's face it, this year has been really hard for a lot of us!  However keeping my goals in sight and asking myself each day "What can I do today to help me get one step closer to my dream?" has allowed Muse Silk Paintings and me as a person, to continue to grow.  In that respect, keeping positive, and remembering my favorite things, often times are what keeps me going....

*Clearing throat* 

Big fluffy rain clouds and shimmering sun rays
Soaring tree branches and PJs on Sundays
Beautiful patterns on butterfly wings
These are a few of my favorite things

Reading nice comments and hearing from Musies

Dreams of silk painting while catching my snoozies
Good tiding wishes the holidays bring
These are a few of my favorite things

Italian ice cream and small, fluffy piglets

Warm sheets from the dryer and full staff of Muselets
Envisioning all the great concepts for Spring
These are a few of my favorite things

When bad news hits

When harsh words sting
When I feel so sad
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don't feel so bad

In closing, I want to share a ROARING THANK YOU to all my friends, family, clients and supporters over this past whirlwind year of 2010.  Wishing you and your family health, wealth, prosperity, and of course, ultimate style for the New Year!!
