Sing It, Bing!

I loved listening to Bing Crosby's voice when I was growing up. He was my favorite male vocalist, next to my dad. Somewhere along the line, in fact, my dad started calling me "Bing". So you can imagine the shivers of pleasure I felt, walking down memory lane the other day on You Tube, listening to old movie clips as Bing crooned in "Holiday Inn", "White Christmas", "Bells of St. Mary's", and "Going My Way", among others. I was looking for the lyrics to "Easter Parade" because I've been singing it a lot lately since we made these pretty little things at the girls' birthday party!

In one of my prouder crafting moments, I discovered what a little hot glue, flowers, rick-rack, and lace can do to a dust mask.

Easter Parade (music by Irving Berlin)
In your Easter bonnet with all the frills upon it
You'll be the grandest lady in the Easter parade

I'll be all in clover and when they look you over
I'll be the proudest fellow in the Easter parade

On the Avenue
Fifth Avenue
The photographers will snap us
And you'll find that you're
In the rotogravure

Oh, I could write a sonnet about your Easter bonnet
And of the girl I'm taking to the Easter parade

The angel said to the women, "Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay." --Matthew 28:5-6

I still think those hats are super clever! Not sure about the Bing Crosby bit....

I adore Bing Crosby. He reminds me of my dad (the singing and acting Bing, not the supposedly abusive-at-home Bing) !

I should have born in a different era. I could listen to swing & jazz all day.
