I love my piano!

My hubby and I both play the piano and we look forward to bringing out the Christmas music to play during the holidays.

I love the Lighthouse painting by M. A. Vessey above the piano. We met her several years ago and are fortunate to have a some of her work.

And I love my shells......

That's really neat that both you and your hubby play the piano! I took lessons when I was a kid and can play "Chopsticks" and "Heart and Soul"...that's it! LOL! And I love the way you decorated the piano for Christmas - it looks fabulous, as does your "Christmas Tree"!

XOXO,

Hi again!
My daughter has a similar piano and you've inspired me to decorate it for Christmas! I might have to try your candles to go on it. Thanks for the inspiration! I've signed on as your newest follower.
