In my younger years. Those that were carefree and under parental reins. Those of the perm and shoulder pads, the days of sexy and single. Well, single anyhow! My bedroom's shelves were filled of books and videos, my two passions. I couldn't even estimate how many 1950/60s musicals I possessed. I just know that I didnt scrape the surface of Marc's collection (boy a few streets away). His advantage was the video shop he worked in.

Every Sunday afternoon, I would loll around in my bedroom on the sofabed watching back to back videos of my favourite films. Calamity Jane, An American in Paris, Blue Hawaii, Girls Girls Girls, The Sound of Music, Pillow Talk, White Christmas, GI Blues, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, Oklahoma... OMG its endless.

Sadly, Hubby, two house moves, the DVD recorder, two kids and Sky Plus under my belt, we no longer possess a video. Yet, I somehow feel compelled to still hang on to these fabulous movies. And, even though I would love to swap my collection to a DVD collection, nowadays I rarely get a chance to sit down to Eastenders let alone High Society.

High Society came off the shelf alot. Starring the forever gorgeous Grace Kelly. And the King of the Christmas Crooners Bing Crosby. Not forgetting my Favourite Legend, Frank Sinatra. A musical featuring the hit True Love and Who Wants to be a Millionaire.

Whats your favourite all time movie? What's the movie that you know all the words to? The one that makes you smile as you recollect. The feel good factor movie.

In other news:

I've been designing t-shirts for the Autumn/Winter collection to be released in September.

I've tested my hand at decoupage. Its messy. I'll blog all about it in days to follow.

Summer camp finishes on Friday, so we'll be out and about on our summer adventures. Keep watching.

My all time favorite is a very new film, although I now the films you mentioned, too.

It the first part of Tolkiens 'Lord of the Rings', 'The Fellowship'. I'm reading the book since I'm 12 years old more or less once a year, and although there are many good books in my shelves it's my a time favourite. The film is very close to the first part of the book (especially in its extended version) and it touches my fantasy and my heart so much, like no other do.

Have a nice weekend
Best regards

They have one channel here that plays the old classic and although I rarely get the time to watch a full movie, i catch little bits now and then and boy it makes me feel good. Something about the playful innocence of a time when song and dance were so much cooler in movies than now....

Shannon, same here. They have a channel full of classics, but like you I rarely get the chance.

Bianca, I remember reading the Tolkiens books at school, esp. The Hobbit. :0)
