Feelin' Groovy

I am a HUGE Simon and Garfunkel fan.  As a teenager, I had all their albums, knew the lyrics to all their songs, which I tried to play on our cheap acoustic guitar.   Although many of their songs were serious and introspective, The 59th Street Bridge Song (Feelin' Groovy) was a happy, feel good song.

Here's a YouTube link of Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel singing this song on The Smothers Brothers Show.  Enjoy!  (You'll be humming it all day.) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TBQxG0Z72qM

So, when I first saw Riley Blake's fabric line, Feeling Groovy, I just had to add some to my stash.  Well, some of it has now been used to create today's shameless commerce featured item.  To read the full product description, see:  http://www.etsy.com/listing/89635614/pair-of-oven-mitts-peace-symbols-on?ref=pr_shop.  I can imagine wearing these retro-inspired oven mitts while listening to oldies.  I'm hoping they'll add a little peace, love, color and whimsy to someone's kitchen. 

Signing off.  My furlough is over, and today is beginning of tax season, when I work a second job as a master tax advisor (IRS Enrolled Agent) for a nationally known tax firm.  Never settle for less.

  5. I saw Simon and Garfield in concert at Duke University many years ago. They were the best. Love the peace oven mitts.

  6. Awesome material for those oven mitts

  7. I love S & G, too. I think my favorite song is The Only Living Boy in New York...unless it's April Come She Will. Both are so beautiful and haunting. Cute oven mitts, too!
