Good morning everyone! Once again this year we kick off our Etsy Christmas In July Party with a musical introduction! What is a party without music?
I would like to introduce you to The Choraleers Acappella Singing Group! They discovered our Christmas In July Party while searching the internet – it indeed is a small world! I invited Damon, the representative of group and the singers to join us!
The sextet was established over 35 years ago at Texas Southern University and performs Doo Wop, Gospel, Holiday and Motown hits. We have performed at private parties, weddings and at country clubs.
They are based out of Houston, Texas USA! Please contact Damon if you are in the area and are looking for performers!
We also invited members of the Etsy Christmas In July team to share their Christmas Inspired musical items.
Gail from QuiltSewPieceful says:
This item is not music themed, but it is a Christmas runner sized to fit a Piano! There are not very many runners on Etsy that are sized to fit an upright piano. I think it’s fun to switch them out for every holiday or season.
Arlene from ThisandThatCrafter says:
Music is always a big hit… everyone can relate to music in some way. So in my shop I decided to make a line of music themed items… I have bookmarks, banners, ornaments, and pillows and hope to add more soon. The item I decided to include in your music theme is one of my music pillows!
Patricia from TheOldBarnDoor says:
There is something about Christmas music that brings out the best in people and always seems to make me smile. Pair that feeling with a winter bird and some cheerful holly and you have everything you need to make the holidays bright.
This charming antique postcard captures that feeling perfectly. Attach a bit of fancy ribbon to the card and hang it on your tree for a festive vintage touch or tuck it into your table centerpiece.
Pam from PamsPawsJewelry says:
Sol D’ Or means Sun of Gold and is found on some Miracle jewelry which was distributed in Ireland. This hallmark belongs to the Solvar company of Dublin though Miracle manufactured most of this jewelry. Originally in 1946, the A. Hill & Company Ltd. began producing Miracle jewelry in Birmingham, England.
These designs were taken from original Celtic, Irish, Scottish, Anglo-Saxon and Viking jewelry. Miracle has always produced very high quality jewelry. It was recently acquired by the British St. Justin jewelry company. It is not clear whether or not St. Justin will continue the Miracle line.
Celtic harp and violin cultural music has influenced our American Country music since the first Irish, Scottish, and English immigrants came to this country in the 1600s to 1800s.
This brooch would make a lovely Christmas or any time gift for anyone who plays and loves the harp, loves Celtic culture and or it’s musical heritage!
