ABC Wednesday

V is for Vintage


and Village.

V is for Victrola



and Violin.










V is for voices.


I visualize my Mother.
I hear her voice and her laughter.





V is for Virgo.



Today we celebrate the letter V.

For a variety of world wide V's visit ABC Wednesday.

Lots of wonderful V words, Sherry! Amazing how many words we can find once we start looking, isn't it? Great post and wonderful pictures! Thanks for stopping by and for your comment, always appreciated!

Enjoy!

Oh, Sherry, I love the little "violin" ornaments - it took me a while to see it - wonderful detail! And the other "v's" are great too - love the nostalgia! Especially moved by the reference to your mother - I remember my mother's favorite was Perry Como so we'd have to be glued to the PC Christmas special every year!

Wonderful Vs Sherry. Is that your violin? Did you play in a past life? Beautiful instrument.

Janie said...

You have a great vintage collection of V words. I can envision my mother enjoying Perry Como, too.

Great vintage shots. We had the Bing Crosby album! There's a little ceramic boy or angel.. that reminds me of a set of angels we had for Christmas decorations.. I wonder if my mom still has them packed away.

A Vintage Christmas post! As a child I played the Violin, but I think you would have preferred the Victrola...

Reader Wil said...

I cannot but say that you are a master with words! The photos are really very cheerful and colourful.

Rose said...

Lots of fun V's here, Sherry! I love the vintage ornaments. Special ornaments and familiar Christmas songs always bring back memories during this season; I hope yours are mostly happy ones.

Nobody could sing "White Christmas" like Bing Crosby!

It all looks vintage. The first one the youngest looking Frosty the Snowman I've ever seen.

Great collection of V's. I love the vintage snowman especially: very cute!

Joy said...

A very musical post. The Victrola is so amusing, and so much of its time. Great variety.

Beverley Baird said...

Sherry, once again I have to mention how good at this you are. Everything is so poetic. Great photos of vintage ...
You reminded me I have a Bing White Christmas 4 78rpm record set I was going to drag out and sell at Christmas time. Guess I'll own it another year since I forgot. LOL

Cheryl said...

Dear Sherry....are we at 'V' already, where has the time gone.
Your ABC post are always so original.
I love the violin, it is one of my favourite instruments. The right piece can make me weep.....so soulful.....

I love VIRGO....Poppi is a Virgo......we are opposites on the astrology chart......they say opposites attract (I believe they do).
