All The World Is Love





Alfred Eisenstaedt's "Parisian Children Riding a Merry Go Round In a Playground"
 
What is the name of that affliction from which I suffer?
All one has to do is mention a Word or a Phrase and suddenly I'm Singing a Song.
It's more than an Earworm.
It's actually quite pleasant...for me anyway. I'm sure it drives everyone near me cray cray..
 I choose from the playlist in my brain and sing the song around and around and around in my head until another song comes along.
Does that ever happen to you?
Please tell me that it does.
Really. I'm not insane. My mother had me tested. Click here

All that the adorable Jane from Flight Platform Living had to do was mention Carousel and I started singing along with the Hollies. Round and round and round and round.... 
And since I'm feeling rather 60's and the temperatures are in the 80's
This is what I'm wearing:
1960's model pose

Fabric purchased here
 
Turquoise earrings from a hippie store in Ventura, California
Orthopedic sandals by Easy Spirit
Prescription sunglasses by Marc Jacobs
 
Riding along on the CAROUSEL at Shiny T Tuesday.
See how I did that?

  1. oh you look absolutely adorable!!! that is brilliant! fabulous sewing, fabulous print, fabulous shape on you! my mind never does the singing thing....i don't let much music in actually, i always always crave silence....my head is too full of all things visual! It cracks my husband up (he is a musician!) that i even say things like 'look at the wind' and 'see how cold it is'! so happy you linked up xxxx

    1. I'm not even close to Vix-tabulous when it comes to home sewing. You're an inspiration.

  3. the daisies remind me of a daisy helmet I wore as a bridesmaid!! itchy stuff - I do like your frock! your 60's poses are jean Shrimpton fab!! I also like your internal brain ipod playlist, knowing the words is a gift too, I know the words to 5% of most songs and that's 'agadoo' and 'simply the best' x x

    1. You're simply the best ;) A daisy helmet. I would LOVE to see that!

  4. Sandra sees The Shrimp - I'm getting Twiggy! Love your 60s dolly bird poses, and the fab little frock, great daisy print and lovely colours.
    Oh yes yes yes, I do the song thing ALL the time, drives the kids bonkers. They often ask me if I know EVERY song in the WORLD (with highly sarcastic intonation) to which the answer is YES. I'll see your Carousel, and raise you a "first I win on the roundabout, then I lose on the swings". Did Puppet on a String make it to your side of the pond? There is a photo of me (somewhere...) as a 3 year old, singing that song into a skipping rope, it was my favourite!
    So happy to have you posting more, Connie, you make me chuckle! xxxxx

  5. Nice frock Connie! I love that 60s simplicity. Oh yes, the song thing. You are not alone. Michael Jackson. Not a favourite of mine, but it's in there now and there's not a lot I can do about it...I blame you! :) Love the Parisian photo of those kids! xxx

  6. Oh I love your dress ... I love the fabric ... and I love the pattern.
    I do the singing thing too ... occasionally I even get the words right. Hubby does it as well ... but he NEVER gets the words right. That's when it starts getting really annoying.

    1. Yeah. I massacre the lyrics quite a bit. But I usually manage to squeak out the tune...sort of..

  7. You look so cool and adorable too Connie. Love your dress! I like the shift dresses the best! The print is so psychedelic. I sing to songs too sometimes over and over again. Lucky you to have 80s temperature over there. It is getting cooler over here.

    1. I think that shift dresses are one of the best fashion inventions ever!

  8. Oh, thanks, now I'll be singing that one! Your dress is so cute - I love the fabric - and you look great in it. The colors remind me of a dress I had in fifth grade, a hand-me-down from my cousin. I wore it the day my mom came after school to join me for the mother-daughter movie introducing us to menstruation. Ahhh, I'll never forget that day!

    1. 5th grade? We had to wait until 8th grade for "the talk." It's amazing half the school wasn't pregnant by then.

  9. I LOVE THE HOLLIES!!! Especially after I found out that David Crosby was in the band, and then suddenly I could hear his voice in the harmonies.

    Just thank God it wasn't the freaking Pina Colada song, sister. Or something by Fleetwood Mac. "Earworm". Great word. Reminds me of the Star Trek movie when they put a bug in Chekov's helmet and it ate through into his brain.

    LOVE your dress. And you.

    1. It was Graham Nash who was in The Hollies, not David Crosby - he was in the Byrds. Pop nerd alert - I just can't help myself! xxxx

  15. Your '60s poses are right on. Now I want to try! That penguin pose is a favourite. And daisies, you can never go wrong. Your choice of this fabric with this pattern couldn't be better. I often get songs stuck in my head, not always good ones. Shall I give you an example? Plop plop fizz fizz, oh what... Sorry!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Yes, the poses!! You got them perfectly in your '60's inspired dress. I have songs in my head all the time. I remember jingles from waaaay back, like when television first appeared. It's fun to look back. Thanks for the trip. :-)

  19. Hi Connie, I love your pattern. I am always scoping out patterns at thrift stores as though I'm searching for The Holy Grail. I don't think you could have chosen a more perfect fabric! My likey very much. This dress would be just the garment for your gypsy caravan and Fernie. Let me know if you come up this way!

  20. Good job on that dress! It looks so good! I like your sunglasses, too. I've had a song stuck in my head for the last three days, it's from my baby's Barney cd. I don't hate the song, but I could use a new one! ...and the green grass grows all around all around and the green grass grows all around...

  21. My dear Connie, we have found the house and a buyer for our own house, but he has to get a mortgage so we are on on stand by waiting for the bank to say yes, ahhhhhhhhhh.
    In the meantime Paloma is 6 weeks away to be due, ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

    Still, as ever, the bank will decide our destiny

  28. hello dear Connie, we found a house we like and a buyer for ours, all at the same time of the birth of our granchild, ahhhhhhhhhhhhh

  29. It does indeed happen to me on occasion, though I'd say that my husband is much more prone to it. He'll often get a song, or just a single line from a tune, in his head and sing it aloud for ages.

    Love joyfully awesome floral print sixties style dress! And those earrings? Total colour matching perfection!

    Big hugs & tons of thanks for your great blog comment today,
