Musical Monday - Color

Work In Progress from Kathy Maximo Designs
 Oh boy - is it Musical Monday again?
Where did that weekend go?

Lucky me, it looks like I am "in the spotlight" with Dave from The Moody Mix  over at the XmasDolly blog today!  So I just had to put my dancin' shoes on & play along today.


The themes today are weather or color. I just had to go with color .... but there are far too many tinted tunes to choose from! I finally settled on Jimi Hendrix's Red House

& Chet Baker/Elvis Costello's Almost Blue almost made the cut today. Here is the version from Bruce Weber's excellent Chet Baker film Let's Get Lost

Many thanks to Kathy Maximo for letting me post her latest work in progress. As soon as I needed a house, she was my go-to gal. You can see more of Kathy's creations on her website http://www.kathymaximodesigns.com & her online shop -Vintagesnapsandscrap.etsy.com.

So, what'cha listenin to today? Pop on over to XmasDolly & share your linky. While you are there be sure to test out some great tunes other folks have posted. You can also find more music over at RUN DMT & Bloggin' With Amanda later today.

Whatever you are into, I hope your day is colorful! 


By the way, have you heard about the Florida Etsy Street Team treasure hunt? Each day until May 12 you go to the FEST blog & get a clue. Then you have until 5/14 to  solve 'em and email your answer. One randomly selected winner gets over $200 in awesome handmade prizes! (I've donated a few, by the way). Click Here for contest details & to see some of the prizes.

  2. Woo Hoo! Hendrix has a spot in my hallway. We have a basement, and I decided to put pictures in the stairwell of old movie actors & singers & I found his picture on the back of a postcard that was 8X10. Fabulous guitar player. Love your other choices too. CONGRATS on being in our spotlight! By the way your partner is my husband in that Spotlight dance, so NO dancing CLOSE! ~snicker-snicker~ Hugs and thanks for playing. See ya next week! woo hoo!
