Today, the last of Mays' photo hunt words' is MUSIC, so joining in and linking up with Astrid.
Photos are varied aspects from my own enjoyment of music, which I inherited from my Dad. Growing up in the 50s meant we didn't have TV till I was around 11 years old, so our radio & record player were big parts of my childhood.
|The music notes Keith fashioned for me some years ago & I finally framed & now have hanging on the wall.|
|My beloved Cottage piano which I bought in the late 80's whilst living in Tasmania.|
I can tinkle away on the piano, but not well as DH will attest to, so it doesn't get much use now that he is retired and it doesn't live in this position anymore since we had the woodburner installed on this wall. I learnt to play when I was 5 for about 9 months till we found out the 2nd hand piano we had needed a large amount of work on it, which my parents couldn't afford. Luckily I was able to read music & our public schools always had singing & bands as part of our education. In my teen years I bought one cheap from a Scout Hall, only to find it also need fixing, then we moved & I had to get rid of it as it wouldn't fit in the new house my parents purchased. Fast forward to a few years in Batlow, & I was given an old one, which definitely had seen better days, so that was left at our rented house we were living in while we built our new house. The move to Tassie, then saw me purchase a "brand new" one, shown above.
|My little table harp, which I actually purchased at Saltaire Mill Music shop in UK.|
About all I really know how to play on it is Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, but I do love it.
|Music fabrics, above and below.|
I've collected them over the years and do have an idea, but just haven't got around to it yet.

I actually took this photo myself so probably not the best.
