Fashion Plates

Hello, Dear Ones!
Today I thought I would do a different kind of post.
Are you familiar with fashion plates?
I just love these and wanted to share some with you today.

I looked up the definition for you if you didn't know what fashion plates are:
A picture showing fashion: an illustration showing a style of clothing, especially a current or new fashion

Okie Dokie!
With that settled I wanted to show you some olden fashion plates
and label them with some song titles.
I just love my music and you know how very talented I am.
Okay, here we go~

 Green Sleeves ~ Perry Como
I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do ~ Abba


 I Fought The Law And The Law Won ~ Bobby Fuller Four


 I Like Big Butts ~ Sir Mix-A-Lot


 Dude (Looks Like A Lady) - Aerosmith


 Mellow Yellow ~ Donovan


 Fernando ~ Abba


I Write the Songs ~ Barry Manilow

 Bette Davis Eyes ~ Kim Carnes


Walk Like An Egyptian ~ The Bangles


 L'il Red Riding Hood ~ Sam the Sham and the Pharaohs

 Going To The Chapel ~ The Crystals


 Little Children ~ Billy J. Kramer


 Listen To The Rhythm Of The Fallen Rain ~ The Cascades


 Beyond The Sea ~ Bobby Darren


Garden Party ~ Ricky Nelson

Was that fun? 
I had a ball and I appreciate you all popping in to visit me and all of my silliness.

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

The Hills Are Alive With The Sound Of Music

The hills are alive with the sound of music,
With songs they have sung for a thousand years.
The hills fill my heart with the sound of music.
My heart wants to sing every song it hears.
My heart wants to beat like the wings of the birds
That rise from the lake to the trees.
My heart wants to sigh like a chime that flies from
A church on a breeze,
To laugh like a brook when it trips and falls over
Stones on it's way,
To sing through the night like a lark who is
Learning to pray.
I go to the hills when my heart is lonely.
I know I will hear what i've heard before.
My heart will be blessed with the sound of music.
And I'll sing once more.
~ sung by Julie Andrews

  1. I love every single image in this post, Shelia. Would you mind if I copied and printed out a few of the golden oldies to use in some collages? They'd be perfect for what I'm thinking about!

  12. Shelia, this post is quite brilliant and terribly clever. It should be awarded the Most Original Post ever. Now let's see, whenever I'm presented with a selection of something (usually chocolates) I love to select a favourite so..... out of this juicy lot my favourite is....Betty Davis Eyes-Kim Carnes with, Garden Party-Ricky Nelson following closely behind! But the cleverest wording for the plate goes to.....Walk like an Egyptian!
    This is the most enjoyable post I've read over my early morning coffee!
    Hugs
