When I was a teenager I had a stack of old 78 gramophone records and I used to listen incessantly to the old-fashioned scratchy versions of songs. I still quite like that sound.
My mother's favourite singer was Richard Tauber and she loved to hear him singing "You are my heart's delight".
If you have time, sit back and listen quietly for a few minutes and imagine a quieter age.
At "Art Journal Journey", Linda is asking for art "Inspired by a Song". When I hear this song I think of many years ago on a peaceful Summer afternoon where a pink cottage, set in a pretty garden, is basking in the sun, and the gramophone is playing quietly in the background.
I hope you enjoyed the few moments in the early 20th century with the song, the scratchy 78 record and the nostalgic painting.
I'm also linking to "Sunday Sketches" for the first time.
