oh, look what the sun did

This is my new favorite spot: my big comfy chair. The seat is large enough to curl up in, and there's enough sunlight and lamplight to read and knit. Plus, it's right next to the radio and record player. I'm content to listen most of the time, but lately the radio station has been playing songs that make me dance. Here are a few of my current favorites:

Oh Look What the Sun Did

Andrew in Drag

Somebody That I Used to Know

And of course I collapse into my tufted gray chair in a happy heap afterward.

What are you listening to lately? I'd love to hear what your favorite song of the moment is.


  1. That chair! How beautiful.

    I'll have to check out those tunes when I have more time and focus--I love finding new music. :)

    Honestly, the song I find myself listening to a lot lately is Nicole Atkins' cover of The Doors' "Crystal Ship." I know it's about drugs, but it is such a great melody and Nicole's voice is amazing.

  2. I also love "Somebody that I used to know"....when I need a lift, I put it on youtube... At the moment I can't get enough of the band First Aid Kit...I have requested their album for my birthday next month. There is a great series on you tube called "Sideshow Alley" live bands filmed in alley's there is some great new to me music on there. I love your big chair!!

  3. It's so great when we can create our own "sweet spot" and know that it's always there when we need a little time to read, knit, and listen to great music. I'm a huge Adele fan and love the Decemberists. More recently, having seen/heard them at the Newport Folk Festival last summer, I've been listening to the Carolina Chocolate Drops -- oh, you'll be dancing!

  4. That big chair will also be super nice when you use the fireplace in the winter months. Oh, but let's not talk about winter now!

    Lately, I haven't been listening to particular songs over again, just generally upbeat ones that make me dance! Sounds like a dance party should be in our near future... :)

  5. LOVE the chair!

    Can't wait to try it out myself! :-)


  6. Lately I have been fussing because the best "pop" station in this area of Tennessee has turned country. That leaves only 1 pop station left. But usually after the little ones are in bed I curl up to crochet and have my laptop playing songs from happier times. Disco and pop from the 70's and british pop from the 80's. It is my escape from a bleak reality I guess.

  7. What a lovely spot in which to sit!
    I've been listening to a music channel that plays a lot of 80's and early 90's music... showing my age and going back to my youth!

  8. Lately, I've been hitting the repeat button (repeatedly!) for song #5 ("She Set Fire to the Rain") on Adele's newest cd while I'm driving home from work. (I've had to remove the cd from my car in order to stop feeding my addiction to it!)
