a lonely piano panel...

Bought this on ebay today for 99p. It's a decorative panel rescued from a now smashed up piano. It measures 17 1/2" by 7" with mother of pearl inlay. The piano was supposedly bought from The Ideal Home Exhibition in the 40's but the design is much older than that so I suspect the story (unless due to the war second hand goods were on sale).

I'm sure I'll find a nice little spot for it here in the part of my house where my own piano is housed. My cottage has modern additions but the core of it is 150 years old with exposed beams so where my piano is is all old-fashioned with a mix of Georgian, Victorian, Art Nouveau and contemporary pieces. I enjoy finding bargains and making them work together somehow. Nothing's posh but I enjoy my little 'treasures' as much as if they cost a fortune!

Overall the Mission 50 is a great ice climbing pack, It carries the large amount of bulky stuff you need for winter fun, real north face denali sale good material hides all the pointy parts and carries comfortably, The hip belt, shoulder straps and other suspension components are sized generously to fit over winter clothing, and with the relatively minor exception of the rope strap, the buckles and other fittings are glove-friendly.Overall the Mission 50 is a great ice climbing pack, It carries the large amount of bulky stuff you need for winter fun, hides all the pointy parts and carries comfortably, the favorite the north face outlet with good quality The hip belt, shoulder straps and other suspension components are sized generously to fit over winter clothing, and with the relatively minor exception of the rope strap, the buckles and other fittings are glove-friendly.
