For the Love of Vintage Books!

Remember music hour in grade school? I used to look forward to that every week! We often went into a special room for singing, opened our books, and Mrs. Mason took out her pitch pipe! Then we were off and to other worlds of adventure! There's just nothing like music to soothe the soul!

The book pictured here is from my personal collection and just one of the vintage books I've decided to sell in my etsy shop: VINTAGE COTTAGE HOME. Take a look. You may remember some of the others I have listed as well. All warm with nostaligia! Come visit when you have a moment!

(Today I'm participating in Friday Show & Tell by My Romantic Home!)


  1. Oh Yes...I so remember. We has Mrs. Warner & she also had a pitch pipe. This was in elementary school & then when I got in Jr. HS I sang in the choir.
    It was such a big deal to get a new outfit & shoes & have the parents there at night to hear the program!! I can remember my Mom & Grandma sitting there watching. Such wonderful memories.....
    Lovely post!!
