Hi, Everybody!!! Welcome back to the countdown.
I follow a lot of unbelievably talented & creative women on Instagram, and since their pictures are so beautiful, I wanted to share a few with you.

This pretty picture is from Amanda @rosierosechic. Her style is feminine without being too girly, creative, thrifted, elegant and neutral with the softest pops of color. And the way she decorated her young daughter’s room is so beautiful I would not mind having a space like that for myself. You can see that room and the rest of her lovely home on her IG page. Thank you, Amanda, for letting me use your picture!!!
Now back to the countdown.
Today’s song was originally recorded by Bing Crosby & Carol Richards in 1950 and was featured in the 1951 movie “The Lemon Drop Kid” where it was sung by Bob Hope & Marilyn Maxwell. It was written by movie composers Jay Livingston (music) and Ray Evans (lyrics). Like many other Christmas songs originally sung by Crosby, it has become a holiday staple covered by everyone from Perry Como, Elvis Presley, The Supremes, Martina McBride and Michael Buble, to name a few. But my favorite version is by the man born Dino Paul Crocetti.
Dean Martin: “Silver Bells” (1966).
I do not own the rights to anything. I am just sharing some things that I love with you 🙂
What are some of your favorite Christmas songs?
Until next time, happy listening!!!
