Vintage music sheets and posters....those were the days!!

It never ceases to amaze what people will throw away. Paper items seem to be thrown out more often than not. Thankfully there are some sensible people out there who agree that these gorgeous items from the past are worth hanging on to! Or at least a chap at my local bootsale thought they were worth keeping as I bought a few old music sheets from him a couple of Sundays ago.

Isn't she adorable!

The colours are muted and the corners a bit tatty but that just adds to the charm.

When I got them home I was reminded of some photos I took of these huge bill board posters. They were hanging on the staircase wall of a small stately country house. They are so large that I only managed to get a photo of the parts rather than the whole.

You can see each A4 sized piece which makes up the whole poster.
I'm going to frame the music sheets and hang them on my very modest stair wall. Don't think they will have quite the same impact but they will certainly add some colour.
Makes me wonder what we should be hanging on to and cherishing for future generations....catalogues, magazines, brochures...trouble is there are so many that I wouldn't know which ones to keep and which ones to recycle. Decisions, decisions!!!
Hope you're having a great weekend, Lucyxx
