Lavendar Blue, Dilly Dilly

One of my favorite movies as a child was the fabulous, Summer Magic starring Hailey Mills.  The rich cousin comes to live with Hailey and her family and causes all types of problems mainly by being a snob.  It was a fantastic story (at least to a 9 year old) and featured this little song. No wait, the song wasn't little, it went on forever and ever.  Even as a child who loved musicals I thought this song was too much.  Sung brilliantly by Burl Ives, is just went on for much too long.

Fast forward to 2011, I was just listening to the song on a Disney cd just the other day.  And the then I popped open the CR84FN challenge and there were colors that instantly made me think of that song. So there I was back to the front porch with Burl Ives...

Lavender's blue, dilly dilly,
Lavender's green
When you are King, dilly dilly,
I shall be Queen

Who told you so, dilly dilly,
Who told you so?
'Twas my own heart, dilly dilly,
That told me so

Call up your friends, dilly, dilly
Set them to work
Some to the plough, dilly dilly,
Some to the fork

Some to the hay, dilly dilly,
Some to thresh corn
Whilst you and I, dilly dilly,
Keep ourselves warm

Lavender's blue, dilly dilly,
Lavender's green
When you are King, dilly dilly,
I shall be Queen

Who told you so, dilly dilly,
Who told you so?
'Twas my own heart, dilly dilly,
That told me so.

 Simple lyrics for an old classic little song.  

I think that my creations are a little more exciting.  I made many different things today because I wanted NO scraps.  I am trying hard not to put any more scraps in that bin until I thin it out a bit.
