I have seen this video a number of times, but I still love watching it! Happy Tuesday!

A couple of nights ago I was watching White Christmas. I have to say that is one of my favorite Christmas movies. The music, the dancing, the clothes…I just love it all. I could watch Vera Ellen dance all day, and I am thinking of convincing one of my sisters to put together an act with me so that we can do that “Sisters” song…
But most of all, I am determined to one day have a dress just like the one Rosemary Clooney wears when she sings “Love You Didn’t Do Right By Me.”
If I had loved during this time period I would want to be a singer at a club like this. To wear beautiful dresses and sing beautiful songs every night would be my idea of the good life.
Remember months ago when I posted about a red ’40s shirtwaist dress I had been trying to finish for a while? Well, I was hoping that posting about it would inspire me to get it finished. That didn’t work, but I found the motivation when I decided that I wanted to wear the dress for my birthday. I will have to take a proper photo of the whole dress soon, but in the meantime, here is a photo of me and my good friend Heather to give you an idea what it looks like.
And, I swiped this video off of Miriam’s blog because I think the clothes and the music are fabulous. It really makes me want to start wearing 1920’s cloche hats!
You are just going to have to indulge me a moment…
Happy 40th birthday Sesame Street! I know this clip is from the 70’s, but it’s got a great swing beat. Plus, you’ve got to love Wynton Marsalis on the trumpet. I remember seeing this as a child and loving it as much then as I do now! Hope it brings a smile to your face!
Happy Monday everybody! I have been sitting at my computer updating my contact list for this weekend’s Open Studios show, (click over to my art blog for more information) and listening to music to help keep myself motivated. I hate doing the tedious business stuff, but it has to be done! So, to keep all of us inspired on this Monday, here is a little Edith Piaf for you. Au revoir!
