Vintage Piano Memories
Happy weekend everyone! It's very windy here in the desert today, so since I'm not going outside to take photographs, I thought I'd share some indoor shots I took of some vintage music and books I already have around the house.
I found this music magazine on a visit to the Oregon Coast one year. (they have the best antique places on the way to the ocean!) I love the image of Beethoven on the front cover.
This bust of Beethoven isn't exactly vintage, but since I was on the subject I thought this image of him is very similar to the one on the cover of the magazine.
This piano study book belongs to my Dad. My Dad played the piano some, and when I was about 9 years old he purchased my first, real piano for me and I started taking lessons! I have fond memories of my Dad playing some old church hymns on my new piano.
Don't you just love to see a child's notes from long ago written in their study books?
"The mighty harmonic effects will inspire you with a love for the noble and beautiful in art."
If only I could touch the pedals then, I would have started lessons before age 9.
So, this is a start to a few days off to relax and unwind from the "real job" world, so you'll probably be hearing from me again soon as I hope to garden, create, take photographs and get updated on all of my favorite blogs!
