For some reason when ever I think of 'nostalgia' I think of music.  I may picture in my mind an image of an item, but just as clear is a tune of a long gone era, usually associateted with the subject of my mind's eye.  For that reason I chose to focus on music for my nostalgic post.  Do you remember the old 33 LP's or the 45's?  Or what about the 1/8 inch thick 78's!

My love for music began with a piano.  While I never progressed further than a two finger rendition of 'Chopsticks', the piano is still one of my favorite instruments.

I agree, there is nothing that quite strums the heart strings as music. A simple chord can make you smile or bring a tear to the eye. Some old 78's can throw me into a dance frenzy! Too bad the feet can no longer remember what the memory calls for!

Excellent topic Lil Sis!  My musical limitations are beginning ukulele ~ jake shimabukuro step aside!  (NOT!)  I stalled so long with my entry mostly because we've been so busy chasing the princess and changing diapers all day long!  Anyway, check it out, I put a scrapbook page dedicated to you and the kids!  Miss you guys more than you can know!

I agree that this was an excellent choice for nostalgia.  I love them in black and white as well.  I took piano lessons from the 5th through the 12th grade. you think I can play now?  Not!!!  Guess it would help if I had a piano to practice on, but who has time for luxuries such as that??????

Blessings to you and yours!~
