During the studio session I spoke of yesterday, I had a nagging sensation about that odd little garden with pink grass taking shape in the white box. When my daughter added a quirky bunny creature (made from a stamp-a-face rubber stamp set) the feeling of familiarity grew stronger. Then it hit me, with a big "Hello and how are you!" I can't say those words without breaking into song ala Paula and Carol, two of my girlhood favorites from the 70's/80's children's show: The Magic Garden. My daughter asked if it was a real song, and I realized that I could probably share the original version with her! I often forget how clicking a few keys can now transport my nostalgic soul back in time. I hadn't thought I'd ever see these "friends" again... and there they were just as bright and shiny (and pony-tailed) as I remembered in this video. Here's a peek for you:
How exciting to share them with my children! The Magic Garden was NYC based show, so you might not have the same reunion-feeling I had upon viewing it, but maybe there's a favorite song or show from your own childhood? Please share. Have you done a search? Oh, do!
Note: this post is especially for my aunt who lovingly reads each blog entry... the same way that she lovingly watched every episode of The Magic Garden with me during our summers.
