Last summer I painted some watercolors of antiquities from the collection of the @cycladic_museum in Athens, GREECE. You can buy them online @cycladicmuseumshop #Repost @cycladicmuseumshop with @get_repost ・・・ Exciting that @ritawilson designed exclusively for @cycladicmuseumshop a collection of notebooks with watercolor illustrations based on Museum’s antiquities! ___ Rita Wilson is an actress, producer, singer/songwriter and proud to be of Greek heritage. “What beautiful pieces the Cycladic Museum of Art has. I was inspired to paint these based on pieces in the museum’s collection. And maybe people will be inspired to write in these notebooks, too...” ▪️Every purchase from these notebooks supports Museum’s community programs ▪️ ©️Rita Wilson x @cycladicmuseumshop & @cycladic_museum #exclusivedesign #watercolor #artist #giftsthatgiveback #ritawilson #notebooks #cycladicmuseumshop
Happy birthday to my beautiful friend @officialrumbledoll Patti Scialfa!! This woman is one of the most talented people I know, loves fiercely, has taken care of me when I most needed her, has anchored me when I was adrift. I have learned so much from her as a parent, a wife, a songwriter, a woman. Her values are ones I aspire to have. She makes me laugh so hard, is pure joy, and is always there for the people she loves. Send her your love here! I love you Patti!!!
@Netflix is bringing #nowandthen to its streaming!!! We had the best time making this movie ( with a killer soundtrack) and so many young women loved this film because it was about young female teens’ experiences. @moore2d Demi Moore produced a fabulous film. It’s become a cult favorite because there hadn’t been a female coming of age movie where young girls could relate. We shot in Savannah, Georgia. I remember laughing so much with @rosie @melaniegriffith @moore2d and the amazing young woman #thorabirch my @girlshbo and #sleeplessinSeattle cast mate #gabyhoffman @riccigrams #ashleyastonmoore all directed by #LeslieLinkaGlatter and written by @imarleneking
Love that @hbo is re airing #fromtheearthtothemoon on the 50th anniversary of the moon landing. I had a fabulous time playing Susan Borman, a wonderful woman and wife of astronaut Frank Borman. The women and wives of the space program endured a lot of anxiety not knowing if their husbands and the fathers of their children would return. Many marriages broke up. It was hard “reentry” not just for the astronauts but also for their families. If you get a chance I hope you’ll rewatch this Emmy award winning series produced by @tomhanks and our company Playtone.
Today is @chriscornellofficial ‘s birthday. This man with a voice like no other said “yes” without hesitation when I asked if he’d sing a duet with me on my first album Am/Fm. His voice on the track, ALL I HAVE TO DO IS DREAM, is so gorgeous and silky. His tenderness and soul come through in a fluid warm, wash over you kind of way. He didnt need to say he’d sing on the album. But he did. What a gift he gave me. And what a gift he was to all who knew him and listened to him. Love to @vickycornell @tonicornell #christophercornell @lilycornellsilver today. #noonesingslikeyouanymore #music #singer #singersongwriter
Born and raised in Hollywood CA. A big city. My parents raised us with small town values: God, family, kindness, and of course, love. When it comes to music I am a fan of all genres. Country, pop, rock, soul, R and B, rap. Listening to kinds of music helped me develop my taste. I wrote my song Big City Small Town Girl ( with @anniebosko and Johann Lindbrandt ) as a confirmation that you can love and sing all types of music. Take a listen anywhere you find music. #singer #songwriter #music

In 1995 , @trudiestyler @theofficialsting @springsteen @officialrumbledoll @tomhanks and I spent a holiday together in Spain. This pic was taken listening to @andreagriminelli playing Flight of the Bumble Bee in a converted church. Trudie and I were expecting babies. People talk about “Hollywood” being superficial but these friendships have lasted. We have all made an effort to stay connected and share our lives over the years. Such a blessing. Such good people. #fbf #music #singersongwriter #singer
In anticipation of Fathers Day, here a photo of my strong, courageous father and I on a family trip to Hawaii in the 70s, I think. My dad escaped Bulgaria and communism for a better life in America. What extraordinary vision he had to imagine a dream like coming to America when everything in your life tells you thats impossible. He attempted escaping twice, was caught and was sentenced to a labor camp called Bogdanov Dal. He figured out a way to escape from that camp, miraculously, where he made his way to Turkey. There he got a job on a freighter coming to America. He smuggled his friend, who escaped with him, onto the boat, sharing his meals and water, no one knowing he was stowed in the engine room where my dad shoveled coal to keep the boat moving. When he came to AmericA, he “jumped ship” , landed in the country of his dreams and professed his love for our United States by declaring, “God bless America” every day of his life. Everyone who ever met or knew my father loved him for his kindness, generosity, and humor. He had the best outlook on life. He lived his life with gratitude. I am so thankful this man was my father. I miss him every day. I wrote a song about him on my album Bigger Picture with @kristianbush called Heart He Handed Down. I wanted to keep him alive in the song but , also, as a reminder to my sons that they descend from an extraordinary man. Love you, Dad. Happy Father’s Day. #fbf

A dear friend of mine found out something you never want to discover in a marriage... that her husband had been cheating on her. When most people think of themselves in this situation, the last thing they imagine is having a conversation with that person they were cheated on with. The song "New Girl" off of my album Halfway To Home, is about what that conversation might sound like. Swipe right to watch a mini music video I made! 📹: @jimjordanphotography
LA - NEXT WEEK! I'll be stopping by the @grammymuseum for an intimate performance & conversation about all things Halfway To Home album on June 3! Grab your tickets at my website and see you there!
Many years ago, 2011, to be exact, in Indianapolis, I opened for @sugarland while @kristianbush played his magic guitar. I was about to release my first album AM/FM and had never performed before a huge arena crowd. Kristian told me that if I ever wanted to write songs to give him a call. AM/FM was an album of cover songs. After @karadioguardi made me believe I could write songs, and I had two she and @jasonreeves wrote with me under my belt, I gathered courage to call Kristian and ask him if he remembered his offer. Before I could even finish my sentence, Kristian said, “Let’s write!” So, here we are, eight years later, going on tour together. Kristian and I have written many songs together , and one of my most personal, Throw Me A Party, was written along with @lizrose0606 This photo was in the local newspaper the next day and lives on my bulletin board as a reminder of his generosity and that some people keep their word. Thank you, KB. You know how much I adore you. #music #singer #singersongwriter #nevergiveup
