Today I'm joining Marty at A Stroll Thru Life for the first time for Tabletop Tuesday. Be sure and visit the other participants for some inspiration and fun.
This is on top of my piano that I have in a corner in my house. It's an old piano from the 1950's. I actually picked it up at a yard sale. It was a steal and my daughter was lil' and I wanted her to play the piano like I use to. She didn't want to really take lessons so I thought at this price I'll buy this piano and if she's better interested in her later years we would get a nice Baby Grand. ........but as you can see she played for 6 years and decided to quit.........I guess the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.
Here's another tid bit for this piano purchase...........my husband is originally years and years ago from Turkey so every once in a while he likes to visit his childhood home.........well when he's gone by himself for a month this is when I buy big purchases and this was one of them. I could go on and tell you what I have purchased in the last 25 years when he goes away himself to Turkey and I stay behind due to business......but another time.
I have a very vast collection of Blue ad Whites which I keep in vignettes all over my home. The picture behind was my Mom's that I inherited, so it brings back memories.
This brass thingy is called a Samovar..........I actually have a few different ones. Also in silver that I have from my side of the Family from the Ukraine. But this brass one is from Turkey, it was used in the old days for tea. When I visist Turkey there are a few places where you can order one of these Samovar's and they bring the whole thing to your table and you can serve yourself in these small glass cups with no handles. They look like large shot glasses. The tea is so good and I'm not a tea drinker really.
Turkish Tea Samovar...........yummy tea.
This is my all time favourite lamp in my house. I purchased it in Buffalo at a mall as I was walking by and it was in the window. Isn't the lil' guy cute with his lil' hat?????
