#TuesdayTune - A Few of My Favourite Things!

At the moment I am celebrating my first year of blogging by hosting a give away of some of my favourite things. 

Give away closed!

I am sure that you will agree with me then, that there is no better song to share for this week's Tuesday Tune  than A Few of My Favourite Things from The Sound Of Music. 

I hope you enjoy this version which is from a Julie Andrew's concert in 1989 and it is a medley of some of my favourite songs from The Sound of Music and Mary Poppins

If you have a favourite song that you would like to share this weekend for Tuesday Tune, I would love to hear it! 

You can post a song from any post, old or new. Please help me spread the word about this weekly celebration of music by linking back to this post and if you want to, you are most welcome to use the Tuesday Tune button.

I would love it if you could leave a comment telling me why it is one of your favourite songs. If you don't link up a song today I would still love to hear about your favourite song, so please leave a comment. 

I can't wait to listen to and learn about your favourite songs this week!

  1. Natasha, I love this song! I sang it at bedtime to my now-26-year-old daughter when she was a little girl. And now I sing it to her 1-year-old son... Such precious memories!

  2. Natasha, congratulations on your first year! The Sound of Music is a wonderful movie full of memorable songs. My high school class graduated in 1996 and our class song was Climb Every Mountain. ;-)
    Thanks for the fun post! ~ Sarah

  3. I agree, Natasha. That is one of my favorite songs. Actually, I like all the songs sang in the Sound of Music...Christine

  4. Raindrops on rose and whiskers on kittens.....
    Julie Andrews and "The Sound Of Music" are some of my favorite things too!!

  5. Congratulations on 1 year!! I love the Sound of Music movie and thank you for reminding me that I need to get it out and watch it again!

    So Long, Farewell is such a fun one too!

  6. I love the Sound of Music! I recently went to the Broadway production of it and it was awesome! I also have the movie in vhs and dvd.

    I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  7. Cute, and she's really great, but it's already Sunday, really, I have to hurry up.

  8. We love the Sound of Music. This is a favorite! So glad you shared it with us!
    Hope your weekend is full of fun :)

  9. I came here from Julie's blog. Congratulations on your win :)

  10. I've always loved the Sound of Music, both the film & the great soundtrack too.
    Hope your weekend is delightful.

  11. Natasha, wow, only a year? You've done well, my friend! Love your favorite things, too. :)

  12. I love the Sound of Music. My parents had the record with the cover you have included in this post. Happy Sunday Natasha.

  13. Natasha.. my fav song changes every other day... Today I like Rotterdam.. It reminds me of when I was in college.. and I was first introduced to this song.. I was dancing.. with some guy.. strange guy.. anyway... thats an old story.. *wink*

  14. Sixteen months ago my husband & I became Mummy & Daddy to 2 beautiful girls aged 3 & 4 - all my life I have been singing,with my parents struggling to pay for lessons to fulfill my dreams ... It seems like my daugthers will follow on with their love of singing with The Sound Of Music & Mary Poppins being their favourite ... but then we cannot leave out Oliver,Annie,The Wizard Of Oz...too many songs to choose from - oh to sing,comes happiness and joy and songs in my heart Kathryn x

  15. What a perfect song to go along with your blog and your giveaway. I haven't listened to this music for years, but it does bring back memories.

  16. The Sound of Music is probably one of the most loved films ever, and this particular song is one of its treasures. My children loved to sing it, and would attempt to sing it before they knew the words. I think my youngest liked the words about the kittens and their whiskers.
    This is indeed the perfect selection for your post.

  17. I've missed you Natasha! So glad you linked up this week. Of course, my button for Favorite Things is pictures of this song, so you know it's one of my favorites. Congratulations on your milestone in blogging. I'm so glad to have "met" you in this big blogging world. Your giveaway looks wonderful and so generous. laurie

  18. I love Julie Andrews, I always wanted to be her when I grew up! I love The Sound of Music too, I could watch it any time! :D

  19. Wow it has been busy here this weekend Natasha, all this lovely music to listen to with my coffee. The Sound of Music first came out when I was old enough to be allowed to go to the cinema and see it with my cousin when we were on holiday in Bournemouth. We felt very grown up :)

    Good choice to fit in with your celebrations.

  20. Natasha - please ignore my previous comments which you have not listed yet as I have worked out how to add music etc !! thank you for your patience xxx

  21. Oh I don't have a favourite song this wekk! But would you like me to turn your lovely button into a grabable code one?
    I meant to do a winner for my button/header giveaway and was going to pick you... then it all got lost in the vomiting... so I pick YOU!
    Want a button?

  22. Thanks so much Simoney-that would be wonderful! How exciting!

    Best wishes,

  23. Hello Natasha....
    Oh yes, Sound of music holds a special place in my heart...
    Sending you just a tidbit of one of my favorites...

    Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens;
    Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens;
    Brown paper packages tied up with strings;
    These are a few of my favorite things.

    Now I shall be humming this little ditty for the rest of the day...
    .....Still Humming...Rosie

  24. Dear Natasha, songs like these makes a lot of people smile. Including my daughter and me. The 'do, re, me song' (as we call it) was the first english song she learnt when she was five years old. We frequently sing it together... Writing this down it makes me smile again. She is nine years old now and I hope wil soon have the patience to watch the movie with me. Have a wonderful week full of your favourite things! Sandra

  25. I love the song from " Mary poppins"i saw this film in England when i was 12 and i loved it!Hugs Catherine

  26. I just did a post of my favorite things....love and enjoyed your blog

  27. Sunday morning here in Italy and I popped over to post this week's selection only to find you have not update since last weekend. I hope everything is ok and that it just because real life has taken over for awhile. Take Care Linda.

  28. I always love your songs...keep them coming. I am off to visit your christmas blog, what fun!
