Hi everyone! We have been enjoying the most beautiful pre-fall weather here in the mountains. As the leaves aren't really turning yet, this is just the prelude to the fabulous color to come in the next few weeks. We usually hit peak around the middle of October. It was 32 degrees here this am!! I have added some fall touches to the piano I wanted to share...
I had already added these music pages to the back of the window from my great grandfather's house, and I have had several different prints hanging on it, so I changed it to this vintage cathedral print my great grandmother left here. I think this is my favorite of all.
I made this lace and burlap runner to sell in my shop, but I really liked it here, so I'm keeping it!
Vintage music, birch logs and painted pumpkins keep things natural.
Dried leaves, hydrangeas and other assorted weeds are combined in my grandfather's basket.
Vintage photo of my great grandmother, her children and her sister. My grandfather is the baby:-)
My great grandmother who was the May Queen at Trinity College (now Duke University) and another great grandmother here on the property with my dad. The cathedral print belonged to her.
I love the long lace drop on this runner...
The statue is really a lamp that my grandmother painted. It started out white, and she added these beautiful mid-century colors that are my inspiration for Christmas:-) The aluminum "accent" on the piano bench is a school project my 12-year-old left there.
This is how is really looks...my baby, Cristian Miguel:-)
I used things I already had, so this was a free transformation. I'm getting good at free these days, I think. Luis cut the birch logs in different sizes for me this spring, and I have used them a lot in various places. We are making yule logs for Christmas out of birch, so I can't wait to have those ready.
Thanks so much for stopping by! If you have questions, please come by my FB page if you have not been there yet. I post other updates there throughout the week, and I love the interaction we can have.
I'll be hosting a giveaway and opening my etsy shop in celebration of three years of blogging this weekend, so please stay tuned and come on back.
