The Hawaiian theme must have been popular.

|They're Wearing 'Em Higher in Hawaii - 1916|
In My Dreams of Waikiki ( Maids of Honolula Danced the Hula Hula) - 1917
I am not a musician, so much of the charm of written music is probably lost on me, but sometimes I can’t resist these beautiful old booklets. I suppose I originally planned to frame these, but that obviously never happened, and they made their way to the bottom of a drawer.
A nice surprise on the back of In My Dreams of Waikiki:
The colors on the cover of Rose Waltz – mint green and red! – are gorgeous.
Aren’t these wonderful? The last thing I need is another vast collection, so in the future I will have to avoid the music section of antique stores!
Coming up in Lost and Found: more music, lots of books, and, of course, fabric.
