Side View’s weekend theme: A grand entrance

My friend, Side View, has as usual, given us a weekend theme to interpret in our own way. “A grand entrance,” reminded me of our 1995 visit to my Sister-in-law’s wonderful 18th century Georgian home in Co. Kilkenny, Ireland.Β  This mansion used to belong to the Waterford Crystal family, and was very grand indeed, although in need of a little TLC.

The feature I loved the most, was the gorgeous staircase which led down into the vast entrance hall,

in which was housed a wonderful Concert Grand piano, which of course I just had to try out for myself. πŸ˜‰

I was imagining how many people in beautiful evening dress, had made a grand entrance down this staircase, as they made their way through to the ballroom which she had converted into a dance studio.

    • Hahaha. I’m sure that I’ll never shake off that one, Ruth. My obituary will probably read, “She often liked to tinkle on the piano.” πŸ˜‰

  1. Wow! When you’re done with that lovely staircase, please send it my way? My landing is looking rather tired at present and needs some sprucing up! And I have to ask, which songs were you playing on the piano?

      • Now that you mention it, yikes – 20 years gone that fast? Let me think, 1995 – anything memorable? I think I might have cracked a wrist bone that year ..
