Once again I am posting Wednesday's wallpaper on Thursday.
 
This time I have a simple explanation and excuse - I was sick in bed all day yesterday. 
Oh, no need to worry, I'm feeling much better today:)  But I was not yesterday, and spent the day in bed with books, movies, and my sweet puppy, whose new nickname is "Queenie" because I was watching a western with Steve McQueen in it;) 
 
.....
 
So, I was going to share the Singin' in the Rain wallpaper that I came up with, but there's something about it that's bugging me.  Instead, I have another musical wallpaper prepared...and no, that doesn't mean the wallpaper is muscial.
 
And here it is, my second wallpaper from the movie...Swing Time!
 
{Full size image available on the Graphic Design page}
 
Yes, Kellie.  I finally watched this movie, and I love it!  Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers dance so beautifully together.
 
Note: The large background image is from Dr. Macro's collection, and the smaller inset photo was found using Google Images.
 
I'll try to have Singin' in the Rain ready for next Wallpaper Wednesday, and no, I haven't forgotten about Gregory Peck.  I'll be working on his wallpaper this week.
 
That's all for now folks!

Cute, cute, cute!!!
Fred and Ginger are just too darling=)  I'm longing to watch Swing Time with you, so we can cackle hysterically at all those great lines... "Ten millions of no cuffs!!!" - and nearly die laughing along with everyone else during the closing scenes=D
 
This is far and away my favorite wallpaper so far=)  Sure, it's the spirit ye've captured entirely! (Sorry for the Irish - I just turned the last page of Captain Blood a few minutes ago;)
 
So sorry you were sick, dear!  I'm glad you're feeling better.
TTYL!

I knew you'd like it:)
 
LOL.  I think you were editing your comment while I was typing a reply;)
Yes, yes, I am dying to watch it with you and cackle hysterically!  I just about stopped breathing I was laughing so hard at the end;D 
Unfortunately, the DVD was scratched, so I have no idea what happens in between getting the tickets to go to New York, and arriving at the dance school, except that it has something to do with a quarter.  So, I definitely need to watch it again:)
 
Oh, isn't that a wonderful book?!  Definitely one of my favorites, and I love Peter Blood's Irish accent and his sense of humor=)
 
Me, too;)  I'm glad it was only for a day.
 
Much love,
~Lady Edith~

Oooh, I like this one! Ginger Rogers had such a cute, flawlessly perfect face. Love that 1940's hairstyle. This is probably my favorite so far too, and I remember watching that movie a long time ago. Loved it! (Or I might be thinking of Shall We Dance...)

(Out of principle, the Gregory Peck wallpaper will probably be my all-time favorite, though. I'm sure you understand:)

Oh, I know!  I love her nose:)  And the hairstyle.  It almost makes me want to chop my hair off shorter...almost
Both of those movies are really good:)  Fred and Ginger together are so cute.  Makes me want to taking dancing lessons so badly.
 
(lol.  I totally understand;)

I love that movie, except for the fact that Ginger Rogers wears some pretty inappropriate clothing....
