Mellow Musical Monday

Wow - my 1st Musical Monday of the year - I missed last week trying to get back into the groove after winter break.

The whirlwind that was Nov / Dec finally took its toll, so I've been nursing a minor plague.  It has been a terribly self indulgent recharging of batteries:. lots of sleep, toast & oceans of tea consumed along with several Cassandra Clare novels and Season 1 of The Vampire Diaries

Finally broke down & checked out Pinterest - fun stuff! I'd been avoiding what I thought was yet another time sucking social media experiment. While the distraction potential is high, it seems like a great way to stash bookmarked faves & online muses all in one place.

Follow Me on Pinterest

(In real-life my overflowing file cabinet is filled with bursting "inspiration" folders with silly titles like Kinds of Blue and Venus Envy). If you're a fan of Pinterest, leave your address in the comments - I'd love to see what pulls your trigger. 

While flushing out my laptop's saved bits this morning, I'm enjoying the snippets that caught my ear in 2011. Today's Musical Monday theme is a "freebie" - for a variety of tunes pop over to Xmas Dolly's blog hop. While you're there, why not jump on board and add your own ?



  1. Hi Stacey,
    As you know I'm on Pinterest also. I'm trying to get into the habit of pinning instead of printing out tutorials, etc., or bookmarking. My files are overflowing with "stuff" too. Hope Pinterest will help me get organized!

  2. I'm also on Pinterest.

    Great choices for Monday Music Moves Me.

  3. The holidays have taken a toll on everyone. I'm trying to get back into the groove of things, too. Glad to see you're dancing with us today. Incidentally, I need to check out Pinterest, so maybe I can put that on my list of to-dos.

  4. Never heard of Pinterest until today. Great choices!
    Have an awesome week!!

  5. Pinterest is so addicting. I pull myself away :)

    Love your selections!

  6. I hope you are feeling better.

    Love your mellow picks, my favorite was the first one, "Rome was not built in a Day"

    I haven't given Pinterest a try yet but everyone seems to rave about it so just a matter of time before I try!

    Have a good week!

  7. Hey Girl, How's goin? Hope you're feeling better. I'm down with the same bug, but doc says it was bronchial pneumonia. ICK My nose ran so much I think it's in Russia somewhere & my brains are all coughed out if I had any. Don't know your chosen songs, but it's good to hear something new now & then. YOU ROCK! FEEL BETTER SOON! I followed you on PInterest.

  8. I hope you're feeling better! Being sick this time of year sucks.

    Pinterest is fun, isn't it? I've not spent a lot of time on there - yet - but one of these days I'll carve out some time! ;)

    Love all your song choices! :)

  9. Thank you for always having such unique choices and for always playing along - even if you did miss one week. It is OK, it happens to all of us, even the hosts. =)
    Happy new year to you and your family.
