E Is For Elvis

DISCLOSURE: Freda's Voice received no compensation for posting. Opinions are 100% owned by Freda's Voice.

I love elephants. Such a mystical creature, and amazingly it never forgets. But no, that is not what I am sharing this week.
I almost went with ego as the theme, when I saw what one egotistical person had the nerve to say. Again, no, I digressed. 
I decided to share with you my love of Elvis Presley.
Some of you who have read my blog, or visit my photography blog, may already know of my secret obsession. For those who didn't know... SURPRISE!!!
Here are a few of my E.P. possessions.
My Elvis sneakers from The Bradford Exchange.
Never worn... no way ho-say!

Elvis purse.

Elvis pajamas.

Elvis cosmetic bag.

Elvis bedside lamp.

Elvis cigarette case, though I quit smoking 5 years ago.

One of the many unopened Elvis calendars.

I actually have two of these Elvis pink lemonade mixes.
Unopened of course.

One of my many Elvis figurines.

Elvis playing cards.

Yes, I even have Elvis Pez. 

So there you see some of my most prized Elvis possessions. Of course this is only a piece of the pie, I didn't want to be here all night going through my goodies... LOL
Do you enjoy Elvis? Have a favorite song??
I will leave you with this youtube video for my Elvis pick. It's not my favorite, but it is the song I danced with my cousin Billy at his wedding. Since he rests in heaven now, I always think of him when I play it.

  2. I really enjoyed this! I adore Elvis too, always have and I just know I always will. My mother collected elephants, not the live ones of course, and yet if she could have she would have had them as well. She favored them having their tusks up! After my mother passed, her collection is now mine. I have two large stone elephants (she had in her living room) sitting in an outdoor flower garden! I think they enjoy the fresh air! :)

  6. cool memorabilia you have there Freda. my late Uncle was a big Elvis fan as well and he had a huge collection of vinyl records, tapes and CDs. he would always play Elvis's music around the house so i grew up listening to Elvis's songs and eventually liking them too.

  8. I am reading a neat book about Elvis called "The Day the Music Changed." It consists of letters back and forth between him when he was a naive 20 and her when she was 14. I am really enjoying it and would recommend it highly.

    =)

  9. You have some really interesting Elvis memorabilia. He had such a great voice. I still really enjoy listening to his music.

    Sue, I'll have to read the book. Sounds fascinating.

REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…
