A Piano For The Living Room

I'm still not sure what happened, it's just a blur. All I remember is that we went to our local Habitat for Humanity store hunting for some old records for the girls new record player, and, we came home with this.........


I couldn't help myself, truly I swear I couldn't. It spoke to me, I'm not kidding, this piano spoke to my heart, in the boldest of whispers {it was 50% off!}, and the next thing I remember, my husband was loading this divine instrument onto our trailer. I feel that I should surely apologize to you all. All that talk around here of slow and intentional living, I threw caution to the wind! What else could I have done? It was speaking to me y'all!



I couldn't be happier, giddy actually. Isn't she the most beautiful thing you've ever laid eyes on? I wouldn't fault you a bit if you were having piano envy right now.  Even deer looks thrilled doesn't he? Our youngest daughter is smitten. She had already taught herself to play a few songs on our keyboard, and now she's raring to take lessons from a friend of ours in town. She's always been drawn to the piano, and now she can fly!



Even though it's sadly out of tune {it has to acclimate before tuning, who knew?}, her playing has brought life to this old house, the whole house comes alive, my heart comes alive. I feel that I'm finally home. Who knew that our little house was longing for music so? I sure didn't.
xo,
Amy

  1. LOVE the piano and am so jealous! I've been thinking about one for awhile now. Took lessons for years as a young girl but haven't played in at least 30 years. It was a great stress reliever!

    1. Do you have a Habitat For Humanity store in your area? Just be careful shopping there, sometimes their merchandise 'speaks' to you! ;)

  2. This is SO beautiful! I love your home. My son likes to play on the piano at his grandpa's house, if I can find an inexpensive one I'm following your lead!

    1. Thank you so much! We patiently waited two weeks for it to become acclimated to our home and today was finally 'tune' day! We found out that it's at least 100 years old {I'm totally thrilled!} and that it will take a few tunings to get it doggone close to perfect. The sound of your child playing in your home, oh, there are no words!
