Play That Funky Music....

I have a real thing for sheet music....vintage sheet music in particular...the more worn and yellowed, the better.
I recently bought a bundle of it and have propped some on our old piano.

I use to be able to play a few songs....The Rose by Bette Middler was my favourite and i can still play that one...sort of, well i try my best LOL.

So then i was playing around with some of the sheets the other night and i covered this sweet mannequinn with some...then i painted on my tiny roses and added a strand of pearls around her neck.....

She is listed on my website now.

THEN...i re-covered this sweet little stool....and painted on some fuller pink roses...


This one will be listed on my website tomorrow when i can take some better pics...my camera batteries just went ka-putt.
Thats if my Sam doesnt steal it first...apparantly he "really needs it" for his bedroom...????
A chip off the old block that kid...he has a love for chairs and stools just like his mum :)


So have you been creating anything sweet with sheet music lately????

Hope you all had a gorgeous weekend and i wish you a very happy and safe week ahead.

Love and Pink Kisses,
Shann xo

Whoo hoo.....yay, I am the winner.
Thank you Shann.
I can't wait to see my little pressie from you. I promise it will take pride of place in my blue room.

I love old music - the more yellow and aged the better. I've been painting roses on mine too and I like to use it in card making as well.
Hugs,
Kerryanne

Hi Shann,
The mannequin is beautiful - I love her!!!
It makes my heart happy when I read how Sam "steals" things - makes me think how my daughter used to be - How sweet of Sam and he's got great taste too.
If you're still feeling a little blue (thanks for your comment since I certainly was...) here's a bunch of fluff from Zeke ;)
Happy day sweets and I better find something to do with some of my sheet music. You've inspired me!

As always Shannon, your creations have a life of their own.....they are so you.
I love old sheet music too,old books...I love the musty smell. I am weird though and love the smell of old things. I might need to clarify this LOl. Not old smelly socks or old food....vintage treasures :)

You are so FUNNY!!! Twizzlers are like licorice only strawberry or cherry flavored, so good! I will have to send you some! Edy's strawberry bars are awesome, they are frozen fruit bars! So good!

Hi Sweet Shann... Such a pretty post... Your mannequin is stunning and I wish she were living in my bedroom! Love the sweet stool, too... soooo, are you going to give-in and let Sam have it for his room?! He has great taste!!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and for the dear comments... you are so precious! I'm glad you liked the post about Jack Vettriano and I hope you'll enjoy looking at the rest of his paintings. I love the wonderful talent that God gave to him!

Take care and know that you're well thought of!

Oh when I think of all the sheet music my grandmother had and she also had a baby grand piano that I would have loved to have. Hope you are doing well sweetie.
