Stormy Weather


Today it is drizzly and dreary and boy do I feel it. I have a case of the Friday blahs (if such a thing exists outside of Mondays). I have a ton of cleaning to do because my house is under renovation and my 2 year old nephew is coming to spend the night. I've really let things slide this week so now I have to play catch-up.

And because I am avoiding doing my cleaning, I thought I'd share a little you-tube love with you (I'm so inspired by Lorraine's Friday music idea). I am a big fan of the 1920s, particular some of the silent screen actors. Louise Brooks is one of my favorites, so here is a lovely little montage of photos of this lady, set to an instrumental of Stormy Weather. Perfect for such a gloomy day.

I'm only laughing this hard because as I was doing the dishes Friday morning I was belting out "Stormy Weather"..

The twenties were oh so cool! I get the everyday blues sometimes and we all avoid housework too! You are justified.

Oh, dear. The Hat is sooo into Louise Brooks...I'm afraid if she stops by here soon she'll never leave!

Those eyes, huh?
