My Musical Treasure.

Hello and Welcome to Tuesday's Treasures.

Today I wish to share with you some musical sheets I purchased at a auction here in town many years ago. A gift shop was closing down and auctioned all there goods. Not many people went to the auction I think mainly because the owners had such high prices on some of there goods in the shop. A girlfriend and I were just going for a look,several hours later(we left at nine and came back about 5.00pm) we came back with a couple of boxes full of all sorts of goodies. The good thing about an auction is you may be the only bidder. The auctioneer really had his work cut out for him on this day.









Some of the sheets date back to the 1930's. They have the Name Aeolian Club Choir on them. There was also a Junior Aeolian Club Choir.  One interesting sheet is called "Australia! O Thou Favoured Isle! with words by CJ Dennis and they called it A National Anthem.


Roses are freshly picked from the gardens at Kainga this morning.





 The funny thing is I haven't a musical bone in my body but I do love "old things"

To find some more treasure's please check Melody's blog and see who else is linking up. You can join in if you wish.

Happy days.

If you are into scrap booking the music would make a nice background. The Australia piece sounds interesting. I wonder what the tune is? Love the roses.

Oh, I love these! Beautiful roses and old music sheets. What a wonderful "olde world" display they make together. :)

Your rorses compliment the song sheets perfectly, Bev, giving them a sentimental air. Which reminds me C J Dennis wrote The Sentimental Bloke! I love that poem. Still can't hear the name Doreen without thinking of it. I'd love to hear the words of the song you mention.

Old music sheets evoke such lovely memories even if you don't play any istruments. The addition of your beautiful roses did it for me. I'm back around the old piano having a sing song. Thanks for sharing.

Gorgeous - Love the way you have photographed the music sheets with the roses. Perfect.
Always fun to find things that you may never use especially when they are old and interesting.
