Swan Lake

Last weekend my son Dustin and I went to the thrift store...they had all of their record albums 5 for a dollar. Dustin frames the older albums, and uses them as artwork in his loft. I was so excited to find this wonderful Swan Lake book album. It's hard to see here, but the color is a beautiful green......I love the photos in the album, so Beautiful!
It tells the story of Swan Lake......even the text is beautiful.

I also found this silly album, and it brought back memories from my childhood. My parents loved Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass...they played his album all the time.
I thought the album cover was amazing.....I was probably 7 years old, and I dreamed of having a wedding dress made of Whipped Cream. I thought it would be the greatest....(when I showed my husband the album, and told him the story, he said he would have gone for the whipped cream dress at our wedding!! haha)... I spent the whopping .40 cents on the 2 albums, and love them both.
Have a lovely day.

my parents had the same album
it's the one with "a taste of honey" and the world's sleaziest sounding "love potion no. 9" LOL

I remember rolling my eyes when they put it on and running upstairs to put on Big Brother and the Holding Company LOL

Oh my gosh- my parents had that record, too!! Lol! How funny. My sister and I used to make up dance routines to one of the songs on there.. I can't remember which one it was, but if I heard it, it would definitely bring those memories back!
