You ARE a Princess...even if you are sick!

Lillian, in the princess dress I made her for her 3rd Birthday.

It's a sick day here today in our little house. Madeline had a fever last week and it seems that now Miss Lillian has caught it too. Hmmm...home from school and stuck on the couch? What a perfect time to introduce her to some of my favorite movies. You KNOW I was looking for Anne of Green Gables...misplaced the first volume somewhere. I popped in The Little Princess...the one done in the 90's. She knows the Shirley Temple version very well, but I love this one too. We just got to the part here she tells off Miss Mention, when I knew I had to write a post to you all about it. Jump to 5:25 to see what I mean!

Isn't that just BRILLIANT? I started to get teary-eyed, grabbed Lillian's leg and said, "That's true you know!" And THEN it reminded me of how I felt when I saw this wonderful print by the even MORE wonderful Heather of Audrey Eclectic!
The collage was sold long ago, but I know she does prints...I've been meaning to pick one up myself! Do you see Miss Mention hidden in there? I do!

I love how art reflects life, and then life reflects art...we totally went full circle today!

Every girl should feel that way. Even if you're older than you once were, or so pregnant you're about to pop, or having one of those ratty hair days, I curtsy for you, sweet princess, and hope you have a marvelous day!

Aw, how sweet! Of course I'll get you a print made, those girls need her!
I love both Anne of Green Gables and A Little Princess. I watched the Shirley Temple movie a thousand times when I was little, and found it a while back at WalMart for a whole dollar ;)
Its such a heartwarming story and its true-- ALL girls are princesses!

Love the post mere so cute and so true. I love how you share such wonderful things with your daughters. I think it is so important to teach and show the younger generations what our elders taught us! Oh and Heathers piece is wonderful as usual! And I have to agree the Shirley Temple version I watched a million times over!

Have a great day
