It's really happening. Spring. I am in awe at the feel of the air and the smell of newness on the landscape. Jeff and I took a quick last minute trip to NYC on Thursday. We each snuck in a work-ish meeting, and both snuck in as many moments with our Juliana as we could. The weather in the city was gorgeous, and I had a great feeling of disappointment on Friday night after dinner when I realized I had just had my last New York meal before leaving very early Saturday morning. Though getting home early meant we had a whole weekend with the rest of the brood which included getting a Spring hairdressing on the front porch by my two other girls and also catching a 4ft long snake in the garden who was escorted by the more boyish sort to a nearby creek well away from our property. I guess Spring happens for snakes too, and they want to get out a bit more. Eeesh.
While I should have glanced up at the big movie screen to see this shot of my Square Dance fabric appear in Oz the Great and Powerful, I must have been cramming popcorn or Mike & Ikes in my face. Cuz I missed it. Thanks to several of you who have emailed to let me know. Among several little movie and TV moments that my fabric has enjoyed (Footloose remake (snort), Meet the Fockers (double snort), Judy Moody (yay!), Modern Family (double yay) and others) this has to be my proudest. The color in this film is beyond beautiful, and I applaud their most perfect use of this little panel print. I glow a little thinking back to sitting in front of the TV every year with my sister and our snacks waiting for the Wizard of Oz to begin. Remember when you had to wait a whole year? I miss that.
I hope things are blossoming where you are.
ps. just noticed after catching up w blog friends that I titled this post the same as Alicia's last, good company and a welcome phrase- little blossoms!!
