Music Mood Monday ( 1 )

As I said on Friday, I spent all weekend at Blogshop being inspired and educated on photoshop and blogging. I must say that there is nothing quite like being surrounded by creative and innovative people. I learned so much, and it really made me think about my blog on a whole new level. As a result, I’m going to be tweaking and cultivating posts so that I’m really excited about each and everything. First make-over is my Music Monday. While I love sharing my favorite song of the day, it’s not very stimulating creatively. Don’t worry, I’m not doing away with the music, but I have decided to also include a mood board inspired by the album cover. What do you think?

Song of the Day: The Littlest Birds by the Be Good Tanyas

Music Monday: Eilen Jewell

Maybe you have noticed this or maybe not, but it really doesn’t take much to excite me. Just last week, I was filled with illogical amounts of joy at the prospect of a vanilla ice cream cone post lunch, ending my day with an episode of Hart of Dixie, and wearing fuzzy socks under my boots. And let me be clear. When I say illogical joy, I mean experiencing that giddy filling that builds up in your chest and results in you hugging the dog and singing Grove Is In the Heart.

So if ice cream evoked that much emotion, you can just imagine how I felt when I discovered Eilen Jewell last week. Not much tops my love for finding a new band, artist, or song that I love, and I adore Eilen Jewell’s music. Her voice is a perfect blend of sultry blues and country folk that takes you back to another time. And those lyrics… sigh….

Here is one of my favorite songs for your Monday!
