Do not be distracted by the adorable girl, focus on the amazing burlap pillow in front.
The one with the ruffles.
The other two were from Crate and Barrel, just so you know.
I was a lucky recipient of the Pass It On Project.
Obviously, I'm keeping one. The other, I'm passing on to someone else, to brighten their day. I haven't quite figured out who yet:) Part of this project is also that I will make something and pass it on to a few blog friends of mine, also not something I've managed, but it is on the to-do list. You can find a fabulous tutorial for the pillow right here.
What's that? You see a piano in that picture? And you remember that our entry used to look like this:
Lucky for me, my mother was doing a bit of a tweak in her own living room and her piano had to go. This is the same piano that I took lessons on for five years as a child and yet i still can't play. My sister didn't have room for it, so that is why the less-musically-inclined sibling wound up with the piano. Although my husband tells me that he played the saxophone for years and can technically read sheet music and play the piano. Time will tell.
Anyway, with dreams of children
banging on the keys learning to play, we cleared the space out...
And three very unhappy movers pushed the piano up the driveway and then carried it up the 30 steps to our front door.
The table that used to be there is now under our TV in the living room, in case you were wondering:)
