One of the most interesting things about our girls’ singing career is how addicted we are to vintage sheet music. Anytime that we walk into a vintage shop and spot a bin or box of music scores, we always beeline to it and begin digging through the collection of musty, delicate paper; printed so uniquely on the outside, holding myriads of possibilities for our singing career within.
We have racked up quite a collection of old sheet music over the past several months! A few of my favorites are: “Three Little Sisters” (hmm… I wonder why ;), “Vict’ry Polka” (if you have Spotify, listen to the version by the Andrews Sisters & Bing Crosby! It gives you such a sense of excitement for the end of WWII!), and “Down by the Ohio”. We’ll have to share our entire collection with you sometime…
The covers of these vintage compositions are simply spectacular, in my opinion! Considering the limited capabilities they had at that time in regards to graphic design (no Photoshop to layer photographs, or Illustrator to compose the typography…), the music’s artwork is really incredible! I think I would have a whole gallery wall of this music displayed, if I had my way 🙂
I don’t really have much to say about the outfit I’m wearing in this post: printed pants, favorite shirt, scuffed brown boots… Yeah, not much 🙂 Just a comfy outfit, perfect for everyday work around the house.
