Personal style is like playing the piano.
First you must learn to play by the rules,
then you must forget the rules 
and play from your heart.

 These are a few pieces from my "piano collection"--many found at garage sales and thrift stores.;
one a gift...and my treasured piano and small keyboard that works like a charm!


  1. Love this, Ms. Rebecca!!! HAPPY NEW YEAR to you!

  2. Oh my dear I love your quote!
    And such beautiful pianos.
    I hope you'll have a blessed New Year full of great things.
    Love to you

  3. Hi my dear-what a lovely post and the keyboards are so very pretty and a wonderful collection to have! Thank you for your kind words, I wish you a very Happy New Year and a successful and peaceful 2011 xxx

  4. Wonderful Collection love your collage `Happy New Year ~Love Heather

  5. music does add a dimension to life not found by TV entertainment or the likes .. everyone should be encouraged to play a little instrument of some kind. Enjoy your New Year ..

  6. Another great collection. Are you the pianint in the family?

    Happy New Year to your and your family.


  7. Yes, I am, Darla. It's the closest I come to "art"!

  8. I love your collection, Rebecca! You've reminded me of a couple of musical piano boxes I've got tucked away, I'll have to feature them on my blog next year.
    Wishing you loads of love and luck in 2011. xxx

  9. Beautiful! simply beautiful!

  10. Ah, to be musically gifted--one of my unrealized dreams. I think I may have the same keyboard as you--bought many years ago with the full intention of "finally" learning an instrument. It's in the basement, on my decluttering list. I guess I just need to be content with the music in my heart (which is better than voices in my head, right?)

  11. Awesome Rebecca! Didn't know this side of you :) I love listening to the piano but can't play at all.

    I pray a beautiful year of creating music unto the LORD for you! Happy New Year!

  12. I had to come over here and see your pianos. RB is a muscian--piano and organ. It's not often he plays at home (unless he has a wedding) but Emily and I love it when he takes the time to play here.

  13. How I wish I had practiced when I was a child.

    Happy, happy new year, my dear.


  14. Great collection -- thanks for sharing it!
