Vintage Finds and a Scavenger Hunt

Wow, I feel like I've been away forever, but I guess work just gets in the way of the "fun" part of my life sometimes.  

I'm linking up this week to Ashley Sisk's Photo Scavenger Hunt.
The items this week are Chocolate, Numbers, Canned Food, Music, and Stack.
I have a lot of "music" stuff around the house since I play the piano, so I didn't want to miss out on this photo opportunity!  
Here are my interpretations for the five. 

Chocolate
You may have already seen this photo, so I just added a texture to change it up a bit. 

Numbers
Old printers type numbers, just one of my many vintage treasures. 

Canned Food
I keep this old soup can on top of our refrigerator, we throw our bottle caps in there. 

Music
My piano

Music
A very well loved Chopin music book.

Stacked
Metal baskets I just purchased and distressed to look like old locker baskets.
(most of the textures I used for today's post are by Kim Klassen)

Thanks for dropping by.

I'm working on some little felt birds with embroidery, a relaxing project for the weekend. 
What have you been up to?  I'll be by to visit soon! 
Enjoy the rest of your Sunday.
