you know what day it is....

5 Faves Friday! And guess what...we have a few new people playing along today so make sure to stop by their blogs to check out their lists. Please welcome: Gina, Pamela P. and Gine.

Are you new to 5 Faves Friday and want to be added to the sidebar, just holler :)

So on to my list for today:

#1. American Masters with Bob Newhart on PBS- so this week I haven't done much but scrap and watch TV, really exciting I know...I watched this show on Bob Newhart last night and it was fantastic. I remember as a kid having Bob Newhart on in the background and wishing that he was my Grandpa for some reason. Not old enough to understand how funny he really was, I now wish that someone would put the show on syndication. People had nothing but kind things to say about him.

#2. Annie Lennox- John had told me several weeks ago that he saw Annie Lennox on T.V. and that she gave such an incredible performance and that I had to keep my eyes peeled out for it so I could see it. Well we ran across it and it was every bit as good as he said it was. One woman, her voice and a piano. The entire auditorium was in a reverent hush, captivated by the power of her voice. She is one of those performers that you can NOT take your eyes off of and there is no way that you are going to be able to avoid having a tear slip down your cheek. She is just that damn good. Ohhh and I can't go without saying the woman is a powerful writer:

Why can't you see this boat is sinking
(This boat is sinking this boat is sinking)
Let's go down to the water's edge
And we can cast away those doubts
Some things are better left unsaid
But they still turn me inside out
Turning inside out turning inside out

#3. A little feast for the eyes and ears in the form of Lenny Kravitz- Short hair, long hair, NO hair....doesn't matter this man is BEAUTIFUL.
#4. Elle's Studio: It has been so fun watching how she has just caught on fire and how fast her business is growing. What amazing talent. And her blog is hopping with fun this week, so you better check it out. Free giveaways and downloads, all kinds of good!

#5. Scrappy Fave of the week- CHA baby!! the sneaks, the beautiful new products, the madness. There isn't anything quite like CHA week. Even for those of us who remain at home instead of being able to help out at the show, there is something for everybody to participate in! So for those going to CHA, good luck and have a blast. And for those of us here: we can make it! I know we can :)
So there is my list for today! Make sure to take the tour of 5 Faves blogs and say hello!

Coming up in the next few days: goodies from Paper Trunk, a chat at inspireME and I may have to put a little giveaway together as well with some all new goodies ;) You know, share the wealth!

Have a fabulous weekend!

No CHA for you either??? We can do it! We didn't want to go anyway! LOL

Love the faves...lots of musicy ones this week, you are trying to musically educate me aren't you?!?! LOL, I sooooo don't listen to music. It took me 6 years of having no CD player in the car to miss listening to music! Love the words from Annie Lennox's song!

Have put my faves up, we lost power last night, so no computer! ARGH!
