Old Mixed With New

I was just looking at my friend's face book page and saw this,  I loved it so much I had to post it!  Uptown Funk by Bruno Mars is one of my favorite songs. I was turned on to it by my then 2 year old grand daughter, Kailyn, who is  now a big girl of 3.  It and  All about That Bass by Megan Trainor which by the way, is one of the cutest videos ever, are her favorites! We have on demand on our TV and can watch popular music videos when ever we want.  When the songs were over, she would demand, again and again and.......!  She'd dance fast  and furious  till she would
fall to the floor in a dizzy heap!  Watching her trying to shake her
booty and  do the splits like they do in Megan's video, it's a hoot!

My "sassy" little dancer!

  I thought I hadn't seen anything better then her dancing, but this video comes pretty close!  Someone  had the genius idea of  mixing some of the greatest dancers from Hollywood's golden age to the song, Uptown Funk.  If you're a tad bit older like me,   I'm sure you'll recognize a lot of them.  For those of you "young things" out there who may not have had the privilege of seeing them in  some of these fabulous movies, here are some of their names :
Shirley Temple
Fed Astaire and Ginger Rogers
Judy Garland
James Cagney
Gene Kelly and the " mouse"
Mickey Rooney
Debbie Reynolds
Danny Kaye
Abbot and Costello

Just click on the links and they will take you to the videos,
make sure you have your volume turned on!

Fred and Ginger
I have loved Fred for as long as I can remember, think he's the greatest dancer
of all times and watch his movies every chance I get!


I'm also posting links to the original Uptown Funk and All About That Bass
because they are Kailyn's and my favorites!
(she also loves to dance to Taylor Swift's Shake It Up video but
that's another story)!

Bruno Mars, 

Now let's be honest, did you listen to this song without moving
or did it get you rocking in your seat?
PS.  It just won a Grammy for song of the year!

Here's Megan Trainor's  All About The Bass


 PS. Megan just won a Grammy
 for New Artist of the Year
I hope you had as much fun with this as I did ! 
Till next time.......
This week I will be partying with:

February Red 3

It's that time again, Valentines day is right around the corner and since
I'm soooo not a hearts and flowers kind of girl, I'd much rather celebrate
some of my favorite things in my favorite color,

 My picks for 2016

My red kitchen stool and red scale

A vintage red truck. I'd drive it every day

Red tartan hand bag
So love this!

Red canoes
Perfect for lazy days on the lake!

Vintage red  tool box
I have one like this but bigger

Red linens
Red Christmas stockings
My little wooden shoes with red soles
Vintage red clocks
Old red barns
My coffee always tastes better in a red mug
Red thermoses - perfect for coffee to go

Red kitchen cabinets
A vintage red bike

Red snow boots
I sure could have used these when we got our 4inches of snow!

Last but not least, here is one of the few heart things I  own and do
pull out to celebrate the month of February.  This is my vintage
 heart planter that  I got from one of the venders in our
 old store.  I love the patina and the gold arrow.
Happy February!
Till next time........
