I have this over 100 year old music book that is falling apart.
I didn't know what to do with it until I saw what some of
you folk in blogland are doing with old sheet music.
Please don't be mad at me for tearing sheets of music from
this book. I had reservations about it ~ honestly, I did.
But, what was the point of this book just laying on the book shelf?
So, this is what I did with some of the pages.
I wrapped a candle. But, I warn you, please be careful
when burning candles wrapped in paper! Sometimes
the candle will burn off center thus causing the wax to flow to
the side and softening the 'wall' of the candle. This
could lead to a fire. Please be careful. (I caught it just in time!)
I lined the back of this little shelf.
This is the dedication page in the book - 1896!
There are some lovely pages of poems and drawings. Have a look.
These are just a few of the pages and I think they are wonderful.
I see a project of framable art don't you??
There are some very interesting song titles as well. Some you will have heard
of before and some are quite funny everything from patriotic to
love songs to hymns.
This is a template in the book - a beautiful design of a harp
and horns, flowers and a bird.
This book was compiled by Henry Frederick Reddall and
was published by the Elliott Publishing Co. of Philadelphia Penn.
We are having a snowstorm here this afternoon and into tonight and it's
getting pretty nasty out there. We may get up to 20 cm. and the wind
is whipping the snow around so it's a good night to stay home.
I appreciate everyone who has visited me lately and hope you'll stop
by again. I appreciate your comments as well and try to respond
to as many as I can.
Have a blessed weekend!
