Movies that inspire me

I have found that certain movies, even just fun ones…sometimes inspire me to ‘make’.  They stir something exciting and fun, something that begs me to ‘play dress up’ and create with abandon.

When i was young, and watched Peggy Fleming skate on TV, and she glided over the ice in beautiful sparkly outfits, I was SURE i could ice skate! Certain that just given the opportunity, and a pair of skates, that Peggy and I would be skating side by side.

These movies awaken that kind of belief in me.
