As you read this post, you're probably going to think, "Bless her heart! She has waaaaay too much time on her hands." And there are times that may be true.
Yesterday was one of those rare days that I stayed home and had some time to just enjoy being home. I did some ironing (my least favorite chore), and while I ironed, I watched the movie, "Billy: The Early Years of Billy Graham," which I thoroughly enjoyed and highly recommend.
After I finished my ironing, I was trying to think of something I could post about for today, preferably, without having to go out in the Mississippi heat and humidity to do. And then, I remembered an idea I had a while back and never followed up on -- my piano.
I love pianos, and think any room looks warmer and more welcoming with a piano in it, no matter what its style, shape, size, or condition. I even wrote a post about decorating with them not long ago (Decorating with Pianos).
If you are a regular visitor to Southern Lagniappe, you know I always love to photograph things up close and personal, so yesterday, I decided to get a look at my piano from a different perspective -- through my camera lens. Have you ever really looked at the inside of a piano, especially a grand piano? It is truly a masterpiece ... and a work of art. Just take a peek inside mine ...
I have a confession to make: I had to take two sets of pictures for this post. Set 1 was before I cleaned the inside of my piano, and Set 2 was taken after I cleaned it. I had no idea it was so dusty until I was editing the first set of photos and saw all that dust up close and personal -- Yuck! It's still not perfect, but is so much better than it was. So, not only did I find a post for today, I also received some lagniappe in the process -- a cleaner piano!
