I want to share my organ with you today. My grandmother, Nonna, gave it to me when I was a young girl. I’ve had it for around 30 years. Unfortunately, I don’t know anything about its origins or history. I do know that Nonna was an antique dealer at that time, which is what leads me to believe the organ is antique .
Here you can see that is “toy” sized,
but, I think even at that young age I knew it was special. I don’t recall ever treating it like a toy. I would, however, occasionally plug it in and play to my heart’s content. I hadn’t had a piano lesson in my life. So, I just made up the songs as I went.
I love the details, like this “carving”,
and the pipes.
I never do seem to be able to find the right spot for it in my home. So, I’m delighted that the organ made into a Christmas vignette this year. You will get to see that as soon as I finish my Holiday House Tour post.
Until next time,
