~Music In The Garden and Simple & Sweet Fridays #22~

I saw this music stand at a High School Rummage Sale near our home.
The volunteers were packing up their things that day, I was late as usual.
I asked how much it was and the lady said because it has a broken stand, how about $5?
Of course, I said yes.
I grew up in a family with music and singing. I knew I wanted it but didn't know how to use it.
I placed it in a plant pot and then the magic happened.
The crystals hanging from it reflected the light and it looked magical.
I knew my mother was with me and said this is the perfect spot for it...

Now on with the Party...
