Vintage Sheet Music
The boxes of Madeline's Memories can be quite overwhelming at times. I literally have not even scratched the surface of all that those boxes contain. I rediscovered a carton of old sheet music this weekend. When we were cleaning out her home, I just grabbed this box thinking our middle son, who loves music and theater, would be interested. Now that I have had time to look through the many folders of old sheet music I just had to pick out some to share with you. The artwork on the covers is just beautiful! Some of the songs and the play or movie they came from will be familar, but most will not. There will be more sheet music postings in the future, but today please enjoy this selection.
