I don't know if y'all are aware, but I'm a musician. I play the violin (see my violin post here), therefore music has always had a very large part in who I am. As I've matured over the years, I've been able to collect different types of vintage pieces of music. I've loved using them in my displays, and especially loved that it has become appreciated by artists for use in collages and backgrounds. I've seen some wonderfully talented uses for old stained music and always seem to be enthralled by what y'all come up with for using it.
As I look through piles of old piano music, I wonder who it was that played the pieces. A name might be written on a piece...pencilled in directions here and there...was she young or matronly? Did she play for a crowd or to please herself? Was her piano in a small home or a stately mansion?
In last week's post for Pearls and Lace Thursday, I shared some of my most beautiful piano music.
As I look at the exquisite drawings decorating the front cover of these pieces, I am totally lost in the artwork. It's not just a piece of music, but a work of art! How lovely to be able to enjoy the lovely florals and scrolls and fonts without even hearing the music.
This week, I'm using the beauty of the inside of the music as a background for some more laces I'd like to share with you. I hope you enjoy!!
I guess you can say I got carried away, but setting up this group of laces and music and buttons was SO MUCH FUN!! I mean really....getting to play with the pretties! They are my toys you know!
a bit of pink...
