 Christmas Song by Renee Ashley Baker (click link ):  https://reneeashleybaker.wordpress.com/2009/11/30/cyber-monday-online-shopping-plus-an-online-christmas-song-songwriting-contest/

above, Renee Ashley Baker’s beautiful  Mother (Mrs. Ashley)

              Dear Mother:

              I say,  “Merry Christmas Mother” because you made me French toast on Christmas morning (and because you made me French toast every morning when I was a little girl growing up in your house in St. Louis, Missouri).

               I say, “Merry Christmas Mother”  because you made every Christmas a happy and memorable one as I shall never forget your endless gifts to me of bubble bath and bath salts, nightgowns with matching robe and house slippers, necklaces and watches, and cameras and tape recorders.

                   I say, “Merry Christmas Mother” because I remember, even now, the beautiful colors, of the wheel that lit your silver Christmas tree and lit (warmly) the beautifully wrapped packages that you had carefully placed underneath it (year after year after year).

                    I say, “Merry Christmas Mother” because the smell of your Nestle Toll House Cookies and apple pies wafted through  the house every Christmas as I sipped iced tea through a straw out of one of your colorful plastic tumblers .  (I was only two years old at that time but it wasn’t until I was older that I got to drink out of the crystal glasses that my brother “James” brought to my mother from Germany.  The same crystal glasses (with the gold rims) that my brother would play music on whenever he came home for Christmas.  (Note:  It is my same brother–James–who was in the U.S. Air Force,  who did some “secret work” for the U.S. Secret Service,  who was friends with a real ‘Dupont’, and who lived on Fifth Avenue in New York just a few short blocks away from the Fifth Avenue apartment of  former First Lady Jackie KENNEDY  Onassis. . . .).

                     I say, “Merry Christmas Mother”  because you  were always beautiful and because I love you and because it is you who Royalty, the jet set, and other  “very important people”  will see when they look at this website and when they look at me.

Note:  My Mother (Mrs. Ashley pictured above) wore silk dresses and crocodile heels; wore real diamond jewelry (pictured above), wore a real leopard coat and  owned a  real sterling silver tea set (not silver plate).  My Mother (Mrs. Ashley pictured above) was an Eastern Star (the female equivalent of a Mason) and –My Mother (Mrs. Ashley pictured above)  was born in the great year (with Bentley) of  1 9 1 9. . . .
 

 For down to the wire last minute Christmas shopping Renee Ashley Baker’s  beautiful mother (Mrs. Ashley pictured above) recommends:

 

 

   

 

 

 

 

 

    McQueen’s Crocodile Shoes                  Cost:  $ 3,000

RENEE PERFUME BY CHANEL?

I, Renee AshleyBaker, am a woman who loves fragrance. So much so that I want to produce and market my own fragrance. I’ll call it “Renee #9 by Chanel” or “Renee Perfume by Chanel” …(Of course I’ll be talking in greater detail with Chanel about this). Anyway–there is nothing like wafting into a room and leaving a scent flowing behind you. (The looks on peoples faces when I enter a room wearing a fragrance can only be described as ‘delightful). Below are some websites for women who just have to wear a “fragrance”. And Below is the only fragrance for a woman to wear—“Chanel”….

Press Release/For Immediate Release: Christmas Songwriting Contest

November 30, 2009

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

POPULAR BLOG HOSTS NATIONAL SONGWRITING CONTEST

Attention Songwriters: Enter Your Original ‘Christmas Song’ and Win Exposure!

You have heard these words haven’t you: “Chestnuts roasting on an open fire–Jack Frost nipping at your nose–Yuletide carols being sung by a choir–and folks dressed up like Eskimos” (It is Mel Torme’s “The Christmas Song”). Or–what about: “Have a Holly Jolly Christmas–It’s The Best Time Of The Year” (These words written by Actor/Folk Singer Burl Ives). Or — what about 13 year old Jimmy Boyd saying, “I saw Mommy kissing Santa Clause underneath the misseltoe last night” (Three weeks after Jimmy Boyd’s song was released it was No. 1 on the Billboard Charts, selling 2 million records in fewer than 10 weeks!).

“It is indeed the songwriter who makes the musical world go round” says Renee Ashey Baker. “Without the songwriter, Daryl Hall and John Oates would have been without words or music to their unforgettably enjoyable Christmas video ‘Jingle Bell, Jingle Bell, Jingle Bell Rock’. Right?”

Renee Ashley Baker (a Blogger/Photographer) is hosting this first national “Original Christmas Song’ songwriting contest because (a) She wants to help undiscoverd songwriters and (b) She wants to help undiscovered songwriters….

Renee says, “All of my favorite songwriters are, of course, the brilliant ones like Cole Porter, The Bergmans, Neil Diamond, Barry Manilow, Daryl Hall, Dolly Parton etc etc etc….”

The winners of the “Original Christmas Song Songwriting Contest” will be selected by Renee Ashley Baker. All songs entered will remain the property of the songwriter/copyright holder. There is No entry fee. There is also No cash prize, No promise of publishng, and No recording contract offered. However, Renee has a popular Blog (“About Renee Ashley Baker On WordPress”) that is filled with 40 years of ‘rock music and pop music’. And–who knows when some web surfing ‘talent agent’ might click onto (and enjoy) Renee’s eclectic blogosphere meandersings….

How To Enter?
1. Open a MySpace account if you don’t already have one(You must be at least 17 years of age).
2. Upload to your MySpace Profile Page, a video of yourself singing/playing your ‘Original Christmas Song’.
