a buffet in the kitchen, why not?

Salutations! So … what happens when you buy a largish piano and you have not a single empty spot in the house for it to land? The furniture gets a little rearranging! The buffet was the largest piece of furniture standing between me and my son’s eternal musical happiness — so I moved it into the kitchen.

dishes and hydrangeas piled on the buffetI had intended on getting rid of the buffet altogether. Much of the living room furniture went to my mom’s house or the consignment shop. But as I was hauling furniture out piece by piece, I began to realize that I had nowhere to store my pasta bowl, my vases, and all my little goodies that I couldn’t seem to part with.

I am now on the hunt for a smaller coffee table and fabric to slipcover a small-frame chair for the living room. The piano could use a couple of friends!

What’s bloomin’ in the back garden?  The primrose is still blooming and the echinacea (i.e. coneflower) is in bloom. The hydrangea is just starting though. I might have picked these a little early – I couldn’t resist!
