Wow, really beautiful pianos, rooms and pets!
Here is my space with my digital. This picture shows my daughter - she was sick, at home - and it was taken in 2009. The bird has died last year frown



PS: I think I had already shown this picture on PW...

Not exactly the general view pictures that show all the instrument, but here are some of my flat mates: A Petrof uprighth, a gralla (medieval precursor of the oboe) and a Fender precission bass.

Love the one of the little pianist - I feel like that sometimes - too small for the music and the piano. Hope you don't mind if I link back to the image:

Your little one will be better now. Does she still play that piano? Has she taken to it? Hope so . . .

Thank you very much, Sam and Sinophilia! I'm very glad you liked them.
I must confess that the little pianist plays a lot better than I do grin

There're really nice pictures in this thread, lovely instruments and not only pianos!

I haven't been on here in a while, but I like this thread so I thought I would play along smile

Here is my beloved piano and this is normally how this room looks ... music everywhere between me and my 7-year-old daughter playing and practicing.

This room used to be a tiny dining room, then we turned it into a music room - this made more sense to use it like this. We bought a vintage couch to sit and listen to the piano and we enjoy this room very much.

I think it was a genius who invented the Sloping Fronted Piano . . . Just perfect for music! So`s the floor . . .

It was once the Family Room, now "the Music Room." This cost me a lot of redecorating expense elsewhere in the house, but life is compromise:

That's what I did! Remember my picture? smile Although mine is just a "tiny" bit on the lower expense sheet. You can imagine, from my living room (combo music room/exercise room) what my two spare bedrooms look like. smile I did, in fact, redecorate them! They are what cat's like. smile I seriously need to remind myself what's in some of those boxes. smile

Seriously....congrats....it's beautiful.

Sam, I have read your post, here:

subject: Photos! I'll show you mine if you show me yours!

_____________________________________________________

Tooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo, funny!

as I have posted a million times before, I live in a shack that I bought in 1978 that was tiny - 450 sq ft - and was built in 1945 for the soldiers coming from the war (WW II) and were ripe to get married and start a family - having fought a war in Europe from when the war started and were 16 years old - were now 20 or 21 years old in 1945 - if they surived the war.

Sam, my whole shack is just as full of stuff as your room with the digital piano - but in my living room there is nothing except 3 small piano benches for My Yam Clavinova, my Yam P95 and Yam 3 legged piano and a washing machine because I can't afford to heat the basement so I only live upstairs so thus the only place was my living room for the washing machine and my bed is in the kitchen because I was sleeping in the livingroom and when I got my 3 legged acoustic piano BUT - I thew out the couch that was in the living room that I slept on and put a cot in the kitchen where I sleep now. Now people who know me ask me if my bed is still in the kitchen - they have seen it - and I say, of course, yes, the bed is still in the kitchen. .

Also when I bought the house/shack, the mortgage company wouldn't give me a mortgage because hanging from the ceiling of the kitchen was lamp wire with a light fixture - which, of course, could easily catch fire - or cause a fire. I told the mortgage people that I would plug everything into the electric stove because it had one good safe plug/receptical - so I would plug in the iron or the sear microwave - that still works today so from (1976 - 2013!) or an electric cloths dryer-120v, a portable dishwasher and an electric frying pan.- and the insurance company said they would then give me insurance and the mortgage company have me a mortgage with that understanding
that I would be careful. So that is why my house has holes in the walls and ceilings because I told the electrician, that it is a shack so just punch holes in the walls to put in the new wiring so it would be done cheap and quick. I also insulated the walls so it would be warm - and also so - I could't hear the traffic and hear the criminals pushing shopping carts down the sidedwalk day and night and now, of course, so criminal and honest people walking by the shack couldn't hear me playing the piano at 2:00 a.m. as they stagger home from the bars. I also put in new plumbing because I didn't want to die young of lead poisoning from the lead water pipes. And have never painted the place because paint is expensive and wasted on a shack with holes in the walls. The only thing I would add was that when I was a young kid, my parents told me that when they were first married a relative came to visit them and stayed for 6 months and mooched off of them - so I thought that I would keep that in mind and so - nobody has ever remotely suggested that they would like to stay at my place - which is cool - and as bad as it is - it is good enough that I can play my piano any time of the day or night and nobody will say squat!!

cheers,

Oh, yes, and for security reasons, I can't post a picture because if just one person on the planet that has ever seen the inside of my shack between 1978 to now 2013 would know instantly that it was my place and would tell the world and then the criminals would see what is inside and know where to look!

OK, since we are doing pets - here are some "pet" turkeys crossing my yard:



And here's Lovely Laurie and a snapping turtle in the road our house is on. We live about a half mile from a big muddy river, and the turtles come up to lay their eggs. I couldn't get her to stand any closer to the turtle. "Just a little closer, Honey, it'll make a great picture!" It's hubcap sized:

OH, puppies! The Labrador is a cutie, and I love Maggie's tail. Is she actually pointing at the ball, or is there a bird there somewhere?

And I love the setting of your house, Sam - beautiful country.

Very cute puppies that turned into very nice dogs. I wish I have a pool for our puppy Max. He certainly likes to be bath and keeps sticking his head under the water when we are watering the plants.

Hi Michael 99,
I have read lots of your posts in various places and can hear your love of piano playing.
I like the way you say you take your time with practise and the way you play your pianos.
It would be nice to see a picture of your pianos, but I understand you are concerned about theft where you live, this is why you are careful about letting people know where you live.
I hope one day you will not be so worried and would be able to show us your pianos, as you sound so proud of them.

Great thread! This one moved in with me about three weeks ago:





I sold a dining room table and four chairs, a recliner, and an exercise bike to make room for it.
