Friday Favorite Finds

Well to start here are my two favorite musical finds this week

I am sure most of you know who Christina Perri is.  I love her music and think she is just super cool.  So when I happened to find this cover of "Hand in my Pocket", one of my all time favorite songs done by her I was super excited.  Still love the original by Alanis Morissette but this is a great cover.

My second favorite find is "Shelter is Love" an original song written by Jesse who goes by Sound of a Smirk.  He is Sharon's son from over at Plumrose Lane.
After posting a while ago about the contest he had entered with his song "Shed Off Old Skin" I decided to go see if he had a youtube channel since I liked the song so much.  This week I took a few minutes to listen to some of his songs and this is the one that I love.  I can't stop listening to it.

Glad that I was able to figure out how to resize the music boxes this time.

This week I have a few pictures to share with you.  I have been obsessed with masks this week.  I have no idea why but they are just so mysterious and intriguing.   So I have a few of my favorite pictures that I came across this week of them to share with all of you.

I love the colors and design of this mask.
I think that it is beautiful.

The Phantom of the Opera is one of my favorite stories/musicals.
I was able to see it at the Gammage in Mesa Arizona a little over two years ago and it was 

As for the movie, Gerald Butler even with the mask

 I thought that this was a great idea and a beautiful picture.
I might have to steal this idea for Halloween.

One of my all time favorite movies ever.
The Ball is one of my favorite scenes and I have always loved all the masks 
especially the Goblin King's

This mask is beautiful!
I love the feathers and how it comes down into a decorated beak.

Well that is it for this Friday.  I hope that you all enjoyed.  Oh also I would like to give my condolences to the victims and their families of Aurora Colorado.  My heart and prayers go out to all of them.
