What's on your Walls Wednesday

Barb @ Grits & Glamour hosts Whats on Your Walls Wednesday. It's just a fun way to share what's on your walls.

I have a large collection of old, old sheet music...some of it framed, most of it from the early 1900's. Mostly I collect roses but I have Christmas, Easter, Halloween & other assorted covers too. I've also started a collection of some that feature Cinderella for my grandaughter. Caralyn. The graphics on some of these sheet music are works of art!

This was the first of my collection & the only one I bought already framed. When I bought it, it's "mat" was a piece of construction paper, I replaced it w/ the black & white toile. Then I got smart & decided to buy unframed pieces & do it all myslef. Isn't she lovely?


This one is my favorite out of the collection...all I want is a cottage, some roses & you. Too sweet!






This one is sooo me because I used to be wild, they call me Honey & I love roses. *grins*







One of the very few, not framed in an old frame. I wish it were. I guess I should reframe it soon.




Another one of my favorites!





The colors on some of these are wayy off. I have them in a bathroom w/ butter yelllow walls & even w/ additional lights, it washes everything into a golden shade. So if you see a bright glare on some of them, that's my attempt to cast off the gold tones.


Love this sweet one w/ the bird. I know, I know...I sound redundant. "I Love this one" & "I love that one" but I do...I love them all!







I have several more pieces that I don't have the room to display & frame. I guess I need to designate a whole wall to them & get them all out into the open. Won't you come w/ me to Barb's to see what everyone else has hanging. ;o)

Your artwork is beautiful...I actually came to say that I heard someone (I think it was Sanjay Gupta - CNN) say one time that when you take the person's age & percentage burned, it equals their chances of NOT making it. I think that was the formula, so you know...when you're my age, you'd probably be toast! :O) Your looks great for all he's been through! Maybe it's a blessing in disguise because he (not to mention you :O) gets that time w/ his son.

Wow! These are really wonderful, Cami! I have one that's framed called Tres Moutarde (or Too Much Mustard). It's a lady what a HUGE hat, and a gentleman in formal attire eating. LOL! But yours are really lovely.

XO,

Sheila :-)
