{Thrifty Thursday} Music to my eyes!

I love the look of sheet music. I was very into music during my childhood. I sang in choirs and musical groups, I played the trumpet in high school (oh, and just to clarify, at my high school, all the "cool kids" were in the band, it wasn't a nerdy kind of thing, by any means). Our high school won multiple musical competitions for years at national musical festivals. So, music and sheet music holds special memories for me. I love the look of it in art, too, so I was thrilled when I found a few books of sheet music while thriftin' last week.

In the same trip I picked up another embroidery hoop, some vintage-y looking trim and some really pretty beads...

All this loveliness for a grand total of $2.18.

Not bad.
