we have a beautiful antique piano. it was my grandma taylor's... my dads mom. at one point, it was at my childhood home. ..my mom and i both took lessons on it in the early 80's.... and at this point i don't think i could play chopsticks on demand.
in a roundabout way, it ended up in close to my home, in the san diego area. years ago, it was offered to me, and i accepted.
it is most frequently played by my oldest child emma. not formally, but she picks things up by ear quite easily and often plays, and as i write this rough draft, which is now my final draft... my daughter maya is playing. so there. it is used as intended...at times.
but it can also be a handy flat surface. this is what you would see on my piano this week.
also, there are some random torn books and broken toys. i picked them up from the fix-it basket at maya's preschool. i'm a handy girl, so ya know.
www.strawberryoaks.etsy.com. i have been feeling so inspired lately with design and projects, that it's a wonder i made the time to make that pudding.... but later tonight, when i am getting the hunkering for something tasty, i am going to be glad i did. cheers!
