52 Snapshots of Life: Week 2 ~ #Music
I try very hard not to be a pack rat. (No offense to my rat friends) One episode of hoarders and I am cleaning closets. There are certain things that I will never part with and many of those things belonged to my grandmother. She passed away when I was young, but I remember her and cherish those memories. One of the main things I used to love was listening to her play the piano and the organ. I am glad to have some of her sheet music. We have framed several pieces, but these are some of the others that I think are really cool.
The beautiful woman in the photo is my “Nana” when she was young. Her name was Dimple Desdemona, but her friends called her “Dimp.” I’ve always felt she was my special angel.
The sheet music from top to bottom:
Suez is an Oriental Fox-Trot Romance. The lyrics were written by Will Pancoast, with the music by Ferdie Grofe and Peter DeRose. Triangle Music, NY cir. 1922, published this sheet music.
Good Night Sweetheart dubbed “The Favorite Song of the King and Queen of England” is one of my favorite pieces of sheet music I have. It is a 1931 piece of sheet music with the dreamy Rudy Vallee on the cover.
Jealous circa 1924 Frederick Manning sheet music. This piece has my grandmother’s signature and someone in N.Y. with the date Aug. 1, 1924
Yes Sir! That’s My Baby! copyright 1925 Words by: Gus Kahn Music By: Walter Donaldson Irving Berlin, Inc. Music Publishers New York
I Loved You Then As I Love You Now was the theme song for Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer production “Our Dancing Daughters” starring Joan Crawford. That is her photo on the cover. Circa 1928
We are joining The Lazy Pit Bull in the 52 Week Word Challenge. I plan to normally most these on Saturday. Yesterday, we participated in the Fifth Annual Pet Bloggers Challenge. To catch-up, we are combining our Photo Challenge with our B & W Sunday post that Sugar the Golden Retriever and Dachshund Nola co-host.
