Song Inspiration | My Favorite Things

I had a great weekend with my family, in very hot Southern California. I hope all you East Coasters are safe and doing well!

I have a new series that I’m pretty excited about: song inspiration. Inspiration boards inspired by song lyrics! Although it’s August, I’m getting a bit wintery over here, because this is actually the song that gave me the idea: Favorite Things, from the Sound Of Music. Lyrics are below the board. It makes me feel warm and cozy and ready for winter! What do you think?

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 things

Cream colored ponies and crisp apple streudels
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 things

Girls 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

When the dog bites
When the bee stings
When I’m feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don’t feel so bad

If you think of any songs that would make a great inspiration board, let me know! I love a challenge. Happy Monday!
