If you will recall, sometime ago, I made a post entitled Books wherein I recommended a few books that I love. Well, this is sort of in the same series thingy! :) It's Music. (but you already knew that right?)

So, all I listen to right now is folkish and vintage (read 40's type) and Christian music. Mostly the latter. So here are my absolute favourite Christian bands! (Pretty much any Scottish or Irish songs I like.. and lots of '40's... I don't really have favourites of those)

There is:

Tenth Avenue North
Matt Redman
For King and Country
Hillsong (all their bands)
Sanctus Real
Newsboys (some of their songs)
LeCrae (don't say it!)
Colton Dixon (love his different voice!)
Francesca Batistelli
David Dunn
Matt Hammitt
Steven Curtis Chapman
The Afters
Young and Free (which I think is part of Hillsong)

Alright, I know you are all thinking.. "Did she just list every Christian singer out there?" (By the way, those were not listed in favourite, but if they were, Tenth Avenue North would still be at the top) Now for a list of my favourite songs from these folks :D

Tenth Avenue North: By Your Side (if I'm forced to chose, but I love them all about the same)
Tobymac: Favourite Song
Matt Redman: Mercy
For King and Country: Fix My Eyes:
Hillsong: I don't know cause I listed all their bands :P
Sanctus Real: Forgiven
Newsboys: We Believe
Kutless: What Faith Can Do
LeCrae: ummmmm don't know! lol
Colton Dixon: More of You
Francesca Batistelli: He Knows My Name
David Dunn: Today Is Beautiful
Matt Hammitt: All My Love
Steven Curtis Chapman: I think it's a tie between "Cinderella" and "Glorious Unfolding"
The Afters: Broken Hallelujah
Young and Free: Alive
Mandisa: Overcomer

There we go! (whew) those were hard! haha Yeah, just a random post because I felt like I hadn't posted in a while (I know I just posted, but I hadn't posted a real ton recently sooo)

Hope you guys look these people up and their songs (which I love!) and have a great Labor Day!

Hi Again

Wow has it been a while since I last posted! I have grand news for all of my sewing pals... I have contrived to make myself a corset and it works! (no pattern.. cut my own (wooden!) boning, which I know is not period correct..) and this corset works for 1860-1880 :D I am so pleased... So right now.. I have pictures of myself in my Civil War clothing that I hadn't been able to have fun with because of my lack of a corset!

Do forgive the overly thick waist.. I had to double my coat's belt over due to it having been made for a much heavier lady!

Yes, I realize the skirt is rather short for my age now :(

A bird's nest!

I thought this was a pretty pose :)

The wind was very cooperative :D

I like how I did my hair (it looked very Civil War)

I feel like I've seen this pose in a painting before (chuckle)

And I'm picking up pecans.

So there you have it! I hope you are happy to hear from me again! :) Thanks for stopping in!
