Grand Piano

Since I was in second grade, I have played piano.  When I moved to my first apartment after college, I remember thinking I was more interested in getting a piano than a bed! I would love to have had a grand piano, but finances made that out of the question.

My mom helped me find a used piano in the newspaper ads, I bought it, and was off.  Over the years my dad had told me he’d buy me a grand piano someday, if I was a “good girl”, but I supposed either I wasn’t good enough or he just forgot, because that never happened.

Anyway, I continued to hope I could get a grand piano.  And for Christmas 2007, it finally happened!

  1. What a gorgeous piano! You are blessed that you stuck with your lessons. Wish I had. I stopped after a few years because I wasn’t inspired by a change in piano teacher. We moved, and the one I had after the move was stuck in a Beethoven rut. That’s all she wanted us to play. That and songs from Lawrence Welk. 😉 Now, I love both more than I can say! LOL!

    I have a lot of things I love in our house, but one of the things I love best is art. And I love antiques.

    Hope you have a wonderful day…

  2. Oh, I’m so jealous. I wish I could play piano. [sigh] I just wish I was musically inclined! I can sing fairly well, but playing something that doesn’t sound like jungle music is beyond my capabilities. :o) Lovely piano. I’m so happy you finally have one. ♥ ∞

  3. The piano is beautiful, and it looks like you have the perfect spot for it in your house.

    I wish I could play the piano…. two of my kids took lessons for a while, but aren’t taking any longer. What they learned in those few years though has come in very handy and given them a good understanding of music.

    Thanks for joining TIMHT!

  4. What a beautiful piano, I’m very envious. I just started my piano journey a couple months ago and one day (years from now) I’ll have to reward myself with a grand.

  5. My son would LOVE to have a grand piano. He’ll have to settle on playing the one we have at church, but I would love to be able to get him one someday….Yours is gorgeous!!

  6. What Susan doesn’t tell is that she is a FABULOUS pianist! You should hear her play classical music. She’s awesome!
