Music To My Eyes

Won't you play along?

My Uncle gave my Dad this violin. 

My dad gave both his violin and this one to my sister. 

Awhile back, she so graciously gave this one to me. 

From what we can tell by the shoulder strap imprint,
it will be 100 years old in October 2012.

I wanted to restore it but felt that if I did, all the hands that had touched it, the sounds that came from it and the past it represented, would melt away. 

So I enjoy it by taking it out every now and then,...touching it, listened in my head for the songs and sounds to come to me and feeling a closeness to the people who are no longer here.


Until Next Time,

Peace, Love and Timeless Memories


Lovin' the Sounds!

I was reading MissFickleMedia's Blog this morning and was in awe as she showed all the hammering and forging she had just finished.  My elbow now aches in sympathy for her!

If you're a fellow jewelry designer or craft person, you really gotta go check out her shop and all the goodies she has stocked - oh my!! Seriously,....she's got amazingly cool findings!!

She asked the question of "What do you use to get through tedious, difficult tasks?" and it made me wish I could be creating today and listening to Jesse Cook - which is what I do almost every time I'm doing any sort of creating at all - tedious and difficult or not.

If you've never listened to his music, you're in for a real treat. The infusion of Rumba and mixing of cultures into his music creates the most amazing sounds ever - not to mention it's just fun to 'tap, tap, tap' your hammer to!!
