LOL!!! You're absolutely right. Mother won a full blown art scholarship
in<br>high school, but her mother wouldn't let her take it. Grandma
thought art<br>was nonsense and the thought that mom might do better
than she had really<br>galled her. <br><br>Mom was very creative with
all sorts of things. She used to take milkweed<br>pods and make them
into the most beautiful ornaments. I'm glad to be under<br>her

society<br><br><br>> Pam, if I remember right, the older albums were
made from bakelite (sp?)<br>> rather than vinyl. I have some that go
back to Santa Bill's grandfather's<br>> old Victrola. (We still have
that, too.) I wouldn't play vinyl on the<br>> Victrola for fear of
tearing up the vinyl. The old bakelite albums were<br>> also very
brittle and broke easily.<br>><br>> I remember when I was little and
vinyl was replacing bakelite, mother<br>would<br>> take any of the
broken or no longer used bakelite albums and set them in<br>the<br>>
oven to soften them. She shaped them into all sorts of pretty shapes
and<br>> painted them. Most became bowls for fruit or catch alls, but it
sure was<br>> fun to watch her!<br>><br>> Blessings,<br>> Bonnie (SW OH
