Mr. P and I collect clocks. This is one of a few that isn't an antique and comes with a story!
This piano is played only be one person and that is my 22 year old son. He is a big, burly firefighter and he plays the most beautiful classical music you've ever heard! Every Christmas Eve we all gather round the piano and sing carols. He is in an apartment now but when he gets a house the piano will go with him!
I am showing a picture of the cocktail table for a reason. See the basket below? It contains our wedding photo album, baby albums, and our family bible. When my son was in Fire Recruit School he was taught that if they have enough time and it is deemed safe then they can go back in and look in the front room for personal keepsakes such as bible, pics. They are taught to look at the coffee table and end tables, that is why I have them right at "the ready" in the basket, just in case.
This is a view of our t.v. cabinet. The oil lamp on the left came from my great grammy. I collect willow tree figurines and those three are my favorite: Wife/Husband, Mother/Son, Mother/Daughter. I wonder why?? LOL On the right you can see a small blue plate that is put out by the Royal Coppenhagen Co. I collect these but only get the ones that really "speak" to me. They have a new one come out every Mother's Day.
