Anne of Green Gables Entry, The Hazel Dell Sheet Music

I am one of the few who has never seen the Anne of Green Gables movies. Before last month, I had never even read the books. I was inspired to read the book by the pretty photos on Bramblewood Fashion's blog which is hosting an Anne of Green Gables Fashion Week. To celebrate the week, I drew Anne on the roof in one of her "serviceable" dresses.

 I finally read the first book and absolutely loved it! There were a lot of very true and beautiful things written in it.

Some meaningful things said in the book were:

  • " Blessed are they who expect nothing for they shall not be disappointed."
  • "...when a man is courting he always has to agree with the girl's mother in religion and her father in politics."
  • "A body can get used to anything, even to being hanged, as the Irishman said."
  • "It is all very well to read about sorrows and imagine yourself living through them heroically, but it's not so nice when you really come to have them, is it?"

Here is a song to celebrate the week also. Anne mentions that Diana is going to teach her a song called Nelly in the Hazel Dell. This song was written in 1853 and was revived in the early 1900s. A midi version of the song can be heard here at The Music.

I hope everyone has been enjoying Anne of Green Gables Fashion Week and I can't wait to see the rest of everyone's blog posts. Someone will have to tell me if they use this song in the movie.


  1. I love your artwork! It was great to see you last night.

  2. Thanks, Jodi. We were happy to see you guys too. We had fun. We can't wait to come over and see the photos you guys took.


Tell me what you think!
