I don't know if I mentioned before that I play the piano. Someday I'll have to do a Vintage Thingie Thursday on my 1896 upright grand piano, but tonight I'm sharing some of my favorite Christmas music.
Christmas Cameos is a book my mother-in-law, the Quilting Bee, gave to me when they moved from California to Texas. I love to play in this book because it has such beautiful variations on those familiar Christmas Carols. It originally cost $1.50. It was published in 1959 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I love that since my MIL and FIL were both born and raised in Appleton, WI.
The second piano book is my very first Christmas piano book.
I love that whole vintage look it has.
And look! There's my handwriting from when I was 7 and in second grade. That's a little bit vintage.
The second book was copyrighted in 1945, but my mom wasn't even 7 years old then and I DEFINITELY wasn't born then, so I'm not sure how old this book really is. I know it cost 85 cents.
Thanks so much for buzzin' this buzzy time of the year.
Hope you can fly on over to Colorado Lady for
