  1. The cushion is very pretty! Can I participate in the giveaway if I'm in Europe?

    My favorite summer songs would be "The Summer Feeling" by Jonathan Richman and "Forever Young" the Youth Group version. Also "Migla migla, Rasa rasa" by this Latvian folk-metal band Skyforger!

  2. Oh there are so many of them! But atm my absolut favorite one is Seabear- I sing I swim. An old song that reminds me of those summers back then :)

    Ps The cushion is super cute :P

  3. My favourite summer tune at the moment is Doin' The new low down by Swing Republic. It is the perfect mix of old and new and I LOVE IT! It makes me want to sip cocktails and jive the summer nights away! hurrah for the sunny nights :)

  4. Such a cute cushion!
    This summer I'm loving Summer by Calvin Harris.
    Summer songs! Woop woop!


  5. old surfing songs remind me of my childhood

  6. O-Zone - Dragostea Din Tei - I do not know exactly what they sing
    but in 2007, the summer was fun and hot like your bear-cushions :)

  7. LOVE the cushion, so cute! My favorite summer song right now is Ice Cream by Battles.

  8. Such pretty cushions!

    I've just made a summer playlist and I can't stop playing Heat Wave by Martha and the Vandellas

  9. For me it's always about the oldies...the Four Seasons "Sherry" (did you see the movie?) and Sam Cooke "Everybody loves to Cha Cha Cha"!

  10. I love The Kinks Are the Village Green Preservation Society, it has a great summer vibe. I love Picture Book.

  11. For sure: Vampire Weekend - Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa.
    Reminds me of the summer, a few years ago: sun, friends, watermelon and music. <3


  12. Love the cushions!
    Mu favourite song at this moment is David Guetta - lovers on the sun. When I'm riding my car and this song is played I put the speaker on full blast!

  13. I love Dan Croll with From Nowhere, the entire album was my soundtrack for July

  14. I love this cushion so much and my favourite summer songs are Summer of 69 by Bryan Adams and Happy by Pharrell Williams , they both cheer me up when i listen to them.

  15. This is too amazing! My fave is Summer Breeze by The Isley Brothers. It's perfection!

  16. I really like the song "la planche" by the french band "la femme". We listen it really loud when we drive to the beach with my friends. The song is about a girl who feels really good and free when she is surfing. It's a bit naive, but it's a perfect summer song.
    A sweet summertime to the whole donna wilson's team. Keep making some beautiful designs guys. x

  17. Singing songs with the junior set- I always love to sing "Row Row Row Your Boat"
    and get everybody going in a round. Fun!!!!
    (and love your textiles!!!)

  18. The bear cushion is very lovely. I can´t tell that I have a favorite "summer song", but I keep listening to the music by Yann Tiersen this summer, who composed the movie music for "Le fabuleux destin d'Amélie Poulain". So this is probabla my summer music.

  19. My favourite summer songs are Happiness by Goldfrapp & Postcards from Italy by Beirut. Both make me want to dance around!
    As with all of your textiles I love you Bear design. Have fun in NY.

  20. Ahh, can a person ever have too many DW cushions? I don't think so! ^o^

    My favourite summer song has to be Sail by Awolnation. I went to Jan Mayen and Svalbard earlier this summer and my obsession with the Arctic has been growing steadily ever since. Greenland is hopefully next and this amazing video has been a huge inspiration:
    So every time I listen to that song I start dreaming of future adventures in the Arctic. <3

    (Sorry if this pops up twice!)

  21. Could I partecipate even if I'm Italian? My favourite summer song is the version of "Sound of sunshine" featured by Jovanotti, listen it here:

  22. "Because i'm happy..".. Really like the "Happy" song this summer! Makes me wanna dance, sing and spend some lovely time in the sun xx
