My "New" Piano!!



I invite you to click on play with me and enjoy my current favorite classical piece by 
Johann Sebastian Bach ~ The sheep may safely graze.



This piano may have had its better days, but in my heart and in my soul, its still playing the most wonderful music... Mozart, Bach, Tchaikovsky... 




Perhaps serenaded a ballerina while she practiced her pirouette 



I can see it all... in my imagination!!



And now, its going to sit in my studio to fuel my inspiration and bring my creativity to life while I listen to Bach...








Behind that glass door.... in my studio... 
where dreams come alive!!


I have been working tirelessly on my studio, painting, spackling,  fixing, more painting...glazed windows, built a mantel... list goes on!! 

Well, I finally got my first piece in there. Something I never thought I would ever have. But you never know what opportunities you may come across every ones in a while...

Friday of last week I was making my rounds at thrift stores and on the curb of the last shop, was the white piano. I wanted it and the shop owner even asked me to take it...for free. IF {That is the key here} I could find anyone to haul it for me. Yes, it may not be a big piano but it is still very heavy. But my heart was set on it. It took me a week to round up a couple of guys to haul it home to me.

Well, it made it home last night, and I am in the clouds!! I think a piano is one of the grandest things to own... And now I have one!! sigh**

I love my white, tattered and worn piano with its spindle front legs!! 

Keys are all there, still play. Very out of tune and some keys get stuck... but in my heart it still plays!!

I cannot wait till I am moved into my studio so I can enjoy it and hear that music playing!!

Con tanto amore...
da Sonia

That piano is dreamy! I took lessons for 5 years as a child--but haven't touched a piano in years. That is so perfect looking--being out of tune with sticky keys wouldn't bother me at all--she is gorgeous!
