🎹Upper Crust🎹 #ahouseindays 👸🎹👸🎹👸 In the early 20th century it was considered a sign of prosperity and high standing or status to have a piano in your home. My piano was exactly from that era, it's patent on the harp inside dates 1896. It was a gift to my great grandmother upon the birth of her first son, my grandfather. I learned to play on this piano, well I taught myself as it happened. I play completely by ear despite taking lessons. I didn't retain anything from the lessons and always added more notes than were in the sheet music. I'm a musical maximalist too I guess 👸🎹👸🎹👸🎹👸 This is my offering for today's prompt .

Another detail shot from last year’s Christmas - if you saw my stories today you saw that the house is sort of flipped upside down at the moment. It’s hard to believe that we are getting the keys to our new place in exactly two weeks! Here’s a helpful tip for decorating your coffee table trays this holiday season: place bottle brush Christmas trees in any colour (they actually come in an assortment of very fun colours so have fun!), a cozy Christmas candle - my favourite scent is Fresh Balsam- and a glass jar or vase filled with ball ornaments! So easy and festive for the holiday season, don’t you think? 🎄
Looking forward to having a Thanksgiving feast right here next week 😍
good evening! I'm making some little oven bake bowls inspired by @thecraftyfox.uk they're baking now and I am absolutely crapping my pants that they will just crack / disintegrate / explode! I've just poked it and it's hot but soft is that right? should it be hard when it comes out???
|| M o r e • g o l d • w a n t e d || 🖤 • Zien jullie het? Eindelijk heb ik de nachtkastjes geverfd! Ik vind het echt heel mooi en warm geworden in m'n slaapkamer! Vanavond gaan wij nog op stap naar een verjaardag en dan kan ik dit mooie plekje pas weer opzoeken... En voor de geïnteresseerden... ze heeft het gehaald! Nu nog even afzwemmen volgende week 😉 Enjoy your weekend! • Do you see it? Finally I painted my bedside tables! I really think it's such a nice and warm colour in my bedroom. Tonight we have to go to a birthdayparty and then I finally can stay over here! And for the ones who want to know, she did it! Enjoy your weekend!
One of the things we love most about this business is getting to know our customers - we meet some absolutely lovely folk in the showroom each week... but Monty has to be our most gorgeous customer to date! 🧡🐶 ( and get this... he doesn’t shed so stunning grey velvet might be on the cards after all for his lovely owners!🙌🏻) #dogsofinstagram#dogsofinstaworld#dogsofinsta#greyvelvet#luxuryinteriorsonabudget
2 young admirers of our hand painted chairs. How cute!
Ahem... we might have mentioned this before but we have this thing with green!! 💚
@myhousethismonth Day 16 - LAYERING. My daughters beautiful blankets are all layered up on the end of her bed ready to take the chill off. A total mish mash but they work perfectly together 💜🌸 The top one was knitted by my friends mum when Tabitha was a baby #special. #myhousethismonth
🏠working clash😁 #ahouseindays 😁🏠😁🏠😁 My home vs my work environment could not be more different. I have a house filled with the quirky antiques and the oddly collectible while my work space, a dental office is sleek and modern, clean lined and gorgeous. I appreciate both but they do rather clash. 😲 😁🏠😁🏠😁 This is my offering for today's prompt .

Best. Buy. Day 17 of #myhousethismonth . Its a job to decide but I think that wardrobe wins it in this house. . @ikeauk Bodo, picked up for £10 on @gumtreeuk . I painted the frame in hammerite copper (which is more gold) and the wood shelves with @littlegreenepaintcompany paint. . Some days, I regret not having something with doors than can hide teenage mess but occasionally when it looks like this, I'm quite glad 😆. . So what's your best buy? Do tell!! . Right I'm off to make some crusty buns. I've got one of those cheat packs from @aldiuk. They are well easy to make, cost about 60p and makes about 10, everyone here gave them the 👍 up last weekend and they are a fussy bunch. Just call me Nigela 😂
