Spirit of Christmas #BOTB showdown

Good morning, kittens and dawgs! To kick off this most wonderful time of the year, I found a freebie I wanted to share with you (click image below). This is a festive DIY project. I used a sheet of beige card-stock, printed in color, and wha-lah I had a set of beautiful Christmas tags to use on gifts for the family!

Now I have you thinking about the holidays I ask you to join me in round one of December Battle of the Bands and thanks to Jeffrey’s last showdown I was inspired to do something different.

Instead of doing one cover song with two different bands, I’m featuring two Christmas flash mob videos for you to vote on. This is one time where I want you to not only listen, but watch the video to see which captures the Spirit of Christmas best.

This video is long, but flash mob #1 is at the opening segment that takes place at Cache Valley Mall.


The next scene is very different from the first and in what you typically find on YouTube; the mood set by flash mob #2 moved my heart.


Who gets your vote? Did you like flash mob #1 or #2 best? Tell me in comments which flash mob video gets your vote and why. There is no wrong way to vote, except a no vote and that’s a big bah-hum-bug! 😀

Grab a cup of hot chocolate, don’t forget the marshmallows, while you continue the fun with more epic battles with a few of my amazing friends:

Autumn #music

How are you doing my kittens & dawgs? As for me, hopefully, I’m having the time of my life with DH. We decided to use some of his vacation days to just knock around town. It’s wonderful living in an area where there is so much to see and do all within a short day trip. My favorite spot being the Appalachian mountains ~ Smoky’s or the Blue Ridge Parkway this time of the year ~ autumn!

Saturday Song-suasion 58: The Platters

In case you haven’t read, I’m taking a break this month. Although I unplugged myself from the world beyond my computer, I did think beforehand about my lovelies and threw together a whole month of music for your enjoyment.

Reminded recently of a group I enjoyed from my childhood, I thought I’d share this 60s great band with you, The Platters!


The Platters came together as a group in 1952. I was born nearly a decade later in ’61 and in the mid-to-late 60s,  I recall listening to The Platters on my auntie’s recorder player.  Let’s revisit some of the greatest hits by The Platters with this marvelous playlist.


Which Platters tune do you like the best? Or, are there just too many to say you have only one favorite? Thank you for taking time out of your weekend in hopping over to listen to the music! I hope you enjoyed your visit. In fact, I hope you enjoyed it so much that you cannot wait to tell your friends. Go ahead, hit the share (Facebook, Twitter, Google+) button! You know you wanna. 😉

Have a songsational day and be sure to stop by next week another edition of  Saturday Song-suasion!

Saturday Song-suasion #31~ Van Morrison

The luck of the Irish is still with us, as I continue bringing to you another week of music talent for the Emerald Isle. When I began researching artists and bands, I found a few surprises like Van Morrison is from Ireland. Did you know that?

If you don’t know the name, I bet you will know this song by the man…


This song is quite popular, and yet the rest of Morrison’s songs somehow slipped by me over the years. Here are a couple of more top oldies that are new-to-me,
