Pearls and Lace Thursday, The Master's Violin

The Master's Violin

I've been thinking about using my violin for one of my blog posts, and when I found this book, it all just came together.  It's a book by Myrtle Reed, and I'm very excited about finding it.  I have a thing for old books, and have quite a few that I've found lately.  Don't be surprised either if I use my violin again.  A lot of my new finds are old hymn books!

I also recently found some music cards from a WONDERFUL lady named Cathy at her Etsy shop SeaSeaRider and she spent time getting together a lovely set of cards especially for me.  She asked me some of my interests and came up with such a perfect set of cards, I was delighted!!!

I have a rather different bow for my violin, because it has an ivory 'frog' or handle grip, and I've had it and my violin ever since I was in high school.  I won't tell you how many years that has been!!!

The hand-painted bowl is another one of my very favorite things, and I might use it as the centerpiece of my new blog heading.  Who knows, maybe I'll use my violin too!

Many of you share with us the ups and downs of your lives, and I just wanted you to know:

HI Doni, Your violin is so pretty. My grandmother used to play violin. I like how you styled it with that beautiful old book and the other beautiful bits and baubles ;) :) Have you started reading that book yet? Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :)
