“These are a Few of my “Favo-Red” Things…” CONTEST (Part 1)
Pinot Noir, “Boy Toy” polish, and standard “red” poodles,
Valentine’s cards drawn in sweet children’s doodles,
My MOST perfect red boots and big rubies in rings,
These are a few of my “FAVO-RED” things!
In honor of Valentine’s Day, I wrote these lines to the music of the famous Sound of Music song, “These are a Few of My Favourite Things”….. with the one exception that MY lyrics describe a few of my “favo-RED” things!
Since I know the damage that my voice is capable of inflicting upon the eardrums of others, I will refrain from personally singing them…. HOWEVER, if one of my wonderful readers would like to do the honors on my behalf, I would “RED-ily” share the recording in one of my upcoming blog posts!
In addition, my staff and I have had so much fun flitting around the shop today making up new rhymes (Clearly, all rappers at heart!), that we thought it would be GREAT fun to host a little contest for all of my blog readers! Here is how it works. Between now and the end of the week, simply jot down a few original lines sharing some of YOUR “favo-RED” things, then e-mail them to me with your name and address (you may even sing them if you are feeling particularly saucy!).
The following week, my staff and I will choose the finalists whose writings will all be posted on my blog. The grand prizewinner will receive a special gift, shipped to them compliments of Knotting Hill Interiors. So, let us hear from you… and HAVE FUN with this Red-alicious challenge!
For your “creative inspiration”, go to WWW.YOUTUBE.COM and check out the various versions of this song , as originally sung by Julie Andrews. Due to copyright issues, some of the versions are removed, so searching the current postings is the best bet.
