Music has shaped who I am and played an important role in my life beginning at an early age. I grew up in a home where my Daddy loved music, playing the sounds of the big bands and the crooners of the 40’s and 50’s often on our stereo! I began piano lessons when I was nine, and I never had to be encouraged to practice…it was an enjoyable time for me! I began taking voice lessons as a teenager and I still enjoy singing to this day! I have been a church musician for more years than I want to admit. Maybe you get the point by now…music runs deep in my veins! I even met my hubby through our mutual love of music He is a singer/songwriter and guitarist who has the sweet tenor voice of the late John Denver. We are passionate about music, it is truly the soundtrack of our lives!
We always have music playing in our home, especially at Christmas time. As soon as you step out of your car, you are greeted with the sounds of the season through our outdoor speakers! With this in mind, I felt it was appropriate to add the sweet carolers to our kitchen porch.
We love musical events anytime, but especially at Christmas. The Radio City Christmas Spectacular is a favorite. We have seen it several times in NYC and the traveling show in several different cities.
…last year they were performing in the family room!|
…and their period dress.
If you have never heard the Annie Moses Band, I highly recommend you watch a YouTube video. This family has unbelievable talents and their performances are superb. If you ever have the opportunity to see them, you won’t be disappointed.
Once again you see how I incorporate music into a tablescape. This time it is the border of the tablecloth that resembles hand-painted instruments and carols! I hope you have seen how much our love of music is a major part of the Christmas season but also a part of our Everyday Living!
Next up on the tour is Let’s Add Sprinkles.
