Closet Envy

Ever since I was a little girl I dreamed of having a beautiful custom closet!  A place for everything, perfect harmonious order.  Color coordinated!  Like a piece of art.  So when I got married last summer, I told my husband that he had to promise me this dream closet in order to seal the deal!!  We've started looking for our first house, and I pray that my dream may come true soon enough....

More Crushin'

An Horse

Fist of all this musical duo is from Aussie land, which is so dear to my heart (it's where I met my husband!), but second of all they put out such an original and melodic sound that I just can't help but sing along to.  It also makes me want dance, dance, dance!!  What more could you ask for?

Ps. Their name is so quirky!  it came from a sweater they found with it knitted on randomly & grammatically incorrect!

Jason Schwartzman  ~ Coconut Records

Who knew that the guy can rock!  There are so many actors gone singers gone models??? What the ****   But in this case I can def make an exception.  His music is so lovely and dreamy.  So come by Young Janes....his albums Nighttiming and Davy will both be on repeat all summer long
