We are looking to find a new home for our beautiful antique upright piano. I am in the West Des Moines area. It is free to a good home but you would need to arrange moving it. After five wonderful years with it, we can no longer get it to stay in tune adequately for me to play on it. Plus it has one stuck key. Our piano tuner no longer feels it's prudent to tune it since it loses its tune so quickly. So be aware its value lies more in its beauty than functionality. The thought of letting it go truly saddens me and I've struggled with the decision to do so but I need a functional piano. The upright piano is featured in the photo below and was made around the turn of the 20th century and it is as beautiful on the inside as it is on the outside. It has a decorative interior that you can't even see here. I got the piano from my sister when she moved from Minneapolis to the west coast. If you would be interest in giving it a good home, please contact me at I can also email you more detailed photos of it if you are interested. The piano stool is NOT included.

On another note, I wanted to mention that the garden bookazine I assisted with editing this past fall will soon be on newsstands! I enjoyed working on it and it really helped me survive this brutal winter by giving me plenty of inspiration for spring! Soon it will be time to till the soil for planting. Can't wait to get my zucchini and lettuce seeds in the ground.
