Lavender’s Blue (Dilly Dilly), #1167



What a truly special evening I shared with my daughter last night!  We went to see the new Cinderella movie, and it is absolutely wonderful – a perfectly made film.  Everything about this movie is perfect – from the casting to the costumes to the breathtaking scenery.

Filmed at both the Blenheim Palace in Oxford, England and at the Windsor Castle in Berkshire, you so easily fall under the spell of all the magic woven throughout.  The special effects with the fairy G-dmother and Prince Charming’s impossibly blue eyes (and perfect teeth as my daughter noted) draw you in making it impossible to even get up for a bathroom break.

Cinderella is every girl’s childhood dream, no matter how distorted that image makes real life, but for the 2 hours of viewing, one slips easily into the fairy tale never glancing at their watch once for the entirety of the film.

My song of the day is the traditional “Lavender’s Blue,” which is sung throughout the movie with delicate little voices.  Enjoy the fairy tale and go see this cinematic bliss, because every girl needs a good one from time to time.

I am a music teacher for children ages 6-weeks-old - 8th grade. I am also a camp songleader and a Jewish music specialist with and without my husband who is known as Shabbat Scott. We love singing with people of all ages all over Tucson. My "song of the day" idea originally started by playing music challenges on Facebook. I loved choosing songs, and my friends seemed to love reading and listening to my choices. I have decided to continue a daily blog (or as daily as I can manage) and tell you all some stories through some songs that have touched me either in wonderful ways or by annoying the heck out of me. Hope you all enjoy this blog! Happy singing!
