Your Favorite Song

Contributor post by Alicia from AliciasFindings

Listening,playing or making music is something that usually leads us to making memories. Memories that can remind us of events, people, places and more.

Most of us have a favorite song that we always listen to, but can’t get out of our head!

We want to know what your favorite song is and an item from your shop that relates to the song.

Karen from timetalentjewels says Livin On Love By Alan Jackson – anything country are favorites of mine but Alan any day of the week and this one of my very favorites.

The song relates to two young people just starting out and how in love they are and all that is need is Love. “Livin on Love.” She doesn’t care about what’s in style, she just likes his smile. It takes more than marvel and time living on love.

Living on Love, buying on time, without somebody nothing ain’t worth a dime, It’s like that old fashion storybook rhyme Living on Love, its sounds simple that what you’re thinking; Love can walk through fire without blinking, it doesn’t take much, when you get enough living on love.

Then it goes on about how you grow old and the children are gone and they still sing, side by side, living on love, even though they can’t see and can barely sweep the floor they still walk hand in hand through the door, just living on love.

Somehow I feel that relates to my husband and myself. I can only hope that continues until we grow old. In July it will be 42 years of marriage.

Nancy from EponasCrystals said Crystal by Stevie Nicks is another of my favorite songs. It is from the sound track to Practical Magic, one of my all time favorite movies.
These earrings are made of crystal quartz and make me think of the song Crystal.

Then I knew in the crystalline knowledge of you
Drove me through the mountains
Through the crystal-like and clear water fountain
It drove me like a magnet
To the sea…
To the sea…
To the sea, yeah

Rita from RitzySelection states

Don’t worry about a thing
‘Cause every little thing gonna be alright
Singing’ don’t worry about a thing
‘Cause every little thing gonna be alright
Rise up this mornin’
Smiled with the risin’ sun
Three little birds
Pitch by my doorstep
Singin’ sweet songs
Of melodies pure and true
Saying’, (this is my message to you)

Three Little Birds
Bob Marley

On my pillow, exactly one small bird sings

Przemila from CanisArtStudio says my favorite song is “El condor passa” also known as “If I could” by Simon & Garfunkel. It’s a beautiful melody for flute. In my shop there is a hand-painted flute box with little songbirds.

Hand painted long wooden box

Mairi from mairidesign said my sea-glass black heart still holds a warm, inner green, in the sun light, but only the wearer knows its fragility.

‘Paint it Black’ by the Rolling Stones

“I look inside myself and see my heart is black
I see my red door, I must have it painted black
Maybe then I’ll fade away and not have to face the facts
It’s not easy facing up when your whole world is black

No more will my green sea go turn a deeper blue
I could not foresee this thing happening to you
If I look hard enough into the setting sun

My love will laugh with me before the morning comes

I want to see your face painted black
Black as night, black as coal
See the sun blotted out from the sky”

Carola from CarolaBartz says I have several favorite songs and it is hard to name just one. However, in the end it comes down to “Songbird” by Fleetwood Mac (written by Christine McVie), also sung by Eva Cassidy (both versions are very moving). It is one of the most beautiful, heartfelt love songs I know. Just thinking of it right now (and listening to the melody in my head) gives me goosebumps of the good kind.

For you, there’ll be no more crying.
For you, the sun will be shining.
And I feel that when I’m with you,
It’s alright, I know it’s right.
To you, I’ll give the world.
To you, I’ll never be cold.
‘Cause I feel that when I’m with you,
It’s alright, I know it’s right.
And the songbirds are singing, like they know the score.
And I love you, I love you, I love you, like never before.
And I wish you all the love in the world.
But most of all, I wish it from myself.
And the songbirds keep singing, like they know the score
And I love you, I love you, I love you
Like never before, like never before, like never before.

Arlene from ThisandThatCrafter states I bought a baby toy that played this for my Granddaughter and when I would babysit her I would sing her to sleep with this song…

You Are My Sunshine…

You are my Sunshine, my only Sunshine
You make me happy when skies are gray
You’ll never know dear how much I Love You
Please don’t take my Sunshine away.

Yellow button set

Silvia from ForCutiesKids says Black coffee (Ooh)
Is my name
Black coffee (Black coffee) is my thing

Black coffee (Ooh)
Freshly ground and fully prepared
Hot black coffee, boy (Black coffee)
Mmh that’s where it’s at

Way back yonder when I don’t know when
See I got hungover before I was ten
You see my skin is white but my soul is black
And a hot black coffee, that’s where it’s at

(Black coffee)
That’s what I’m talking about
(Black coffee)
(Black coffee)
Ooh, you’ve got to feel it in the air
(Black coffee)
(Black coffee)

Will you hear that?
Some black tea
It can’t compare with me
(Can’t compare with me)
Some black tea (Ooh)
Well it’s as good as, it’s as good as
It’s as good as it can be
But it’s a cup of black coffee
That a working man needs to see, yeah

Here in America, where it’s the land of the free
And you can get what you want if you’ve got some do re mi
And I’ve got me a job, and I’m working like a slave
Yeah I’m independent and you know I get laid
Say I got me a man, and I got me a little place
I got a spit of black coffee, and how good it tastes
I said a dime is all it costs in the States
For a cup of black coffee and how good it tastes

(Black coffee)
And alright
(Black coffee)
Oh
(Black coffee)
That’s what I want, that’s what I need
(Black coffee)
Ooh, what I want me
(Black coffee)
That’s what I want, that’s what I need
(Black coffee)
That’s what I’m talking about
That’s what I’m talking about
(Black coffee)
A black coffee
(Black coffee)
A black coffee, child
(Black coffee)
It’s where it’s at, it’s where it’s at
(Black coffee)
It’s where it’s at, what I need
Black coffee
It’s where it’s at, what I need
Black coffee

Blooming Dahlia – Pantone Fashion Color For Spring 2018

Contributor post by Michelle of EviesToolEmporium

Color trends are a wonderful way to celebrate the seasons!

According to Pantone one of the top colors for Spring 2018 is Blooming Dahlia.

PANTONE 15-1520
Blooming Dahlia
With its seemingly suggestive scent, the subtly alluring Blooming Dahlia beckons us with its understated appeal.

Members of the Etsy Christmas In July Team have been inspired by the color Blooming Dahlia! They have created items in their shops reflecting this inspiration! Here are a few!

Carola Bartz from CarolaBartz says:

A few years ago I found beautiful yarn made from Navajo Churro sheep, a blend of wool and Mohair. I knitted owl hats with it for my nieces and they liked them so much that I decided to make them for the shop as well. This yarn is soft and very warm, perfect to keep your head and ears toasty during those chilly windy days.

Rita Szöllősi from RitzySelection says:

Spring wind floods water
my darling, my darling
Spring wind floods water
my darling, my darling

Every bird chooses a partner
my darling, my darling
Every bird chooses a partner
my darling, my darling

Well, who should I choose
my darling, my darling?
Well, who should I choose
my darling, my darling?

You choose Me, I choose You
my darling, my darling
You choose Me, I choose You
my darling, my darling

Perhaps this is the most beautiful Hungarian folk song. The beautiful “Blooming dahlia” will open in the garden, like this cushion!

Nancy Duncan from EponasCrystals says:

Let’s Go Galactic

Contributor post by Mairi from mairidesign

Let’s go Galactic! The team is taking us on a journey into space with their celestial and sci-fi inspired beauties. You’re sure to become starry-eyed browsing this gift guide.

Stock Lane Studio from StockLaneStudio says: 

Our galactic line of prints and party signs are out of this world! The background design was a labor of love and I really put my heart and soul into the multi layered twinkly sky.

At SLS we love to customize and our personalized night sky prints and printables are a big hit. They are often ordered for nursery decor or baby shower gifts and can include sweet quotes or the new baby’s name. Party planners and parents also love to purchase printable or printed table signs and posters for girl’s and boy’s space-themed birthday parties. We can add the child’s name, age and a big birthday wish.

Judy Merashoff from JAMsCraftCloset says:

National Geographic says…”Compared with the billions of other stars in the universe, the sun is unremarkable. But for Earth and the other planets that revolve around it, the sun is a powerful center of attention. It holds the solar system together; pours life-giving light, heat, and energy on Earth; and generates space weather.”

People are drawn to the sun and moon for their decorating purposes. This sun candle holder was a great find and would brighten anyone’s galaxy.

Sherri from ButterflyFeetDigital says:

Starry skies were just catching my eyes – tv commercials etc. And of course for many years we have been fans – Star Wars, Battle Star Galactica, Star Trek – all fun stuff. So I decided to make a set of starry skies paper but instead of a full set of 12 x 12 inch papers, I decided to go with a few and make it stationery / journal pages instead.

Stock Lane Studio from StockLaneStudio says:

Strong, bright and energizing, Pantone’s ‘Little Boy Blue’ is definitely not just for little boys! We used a blue sky background for our funny, quirky quote art to evoke a positive vibe. This affordable printable word art makes a great addition to dorm rooms or first apartments, but since it’s digital, you can also send it as a cute text or email addition to artist friends or lovers. What color are you feeling today?

Judy Merashoff from JAMsCraftCloset says:

I love painting on glass. I also love taking something vintage and adding my personal touch to that item. Here is an example…vintage little boy blue mugs with hand painted floral accents. I also love having something unique as a decor accent in my home. Here’s yours…

Mairi from mairidesign says:

The Little Boy Blue hues in these sky coloured beads are definitely singing out for the season’s promise of new longer days that are fast approaching. I’m ready for spring, are you?

Nancy Duncan from EponasCrystals says:

The beaded bracelet is made with aquamarine chip beads and golden Czech glass beads. The aquamarine stones are the color of the blue sky and is the birthstone for March. This blue is also one of Pantone’s colors of the year, Little Boy Blue.

EponasCrystals

Cindy Humphrey from Cynhumphrey says:

Blue is one of my favorite colors, in case you couldn’t tell by some of my shop branding! This one-of-a-kind sun visor clip was inspired by my blue car and love for bling. I am a firm believer in “bling” everywhere.

The concept of this item is simple and fun. I chose the ohm symbol because that is associated with stress relief and peacefulness. Sometimes you need that while driving! Or, at least I do!

Cynhumphrey

Arlene from ThisandThatCrafter says:

This ribbon is in the Little Boy Blue color. Great to add that wonderful Blue touch to many crafting projects or to add this fun blue to your package when gift giving. Will add a special touch to so many things.
