Life

Hello, gorgeous

I have been learning violin for about 3 years now. For the past 2 years, I’ve studied with Sarah, my teacher, and she is the best. She has been on the lookout for my “forever” violin. I’m using one from my friend Kevin, and I really want to upgrade to something that sings.

I was on Craig’s list last week, and happened to find this beauty. It was made by Frank Devoney in Scotland! And it’s 126 years old!

Sarah came to test it out with me on Saturday morning. There is a lot that needs to be done to it still: new bridge, bow, strings, case, and tuning pegs. But we made a deal and I brought it home with me!

She sent me this screen shot later, and noted that my violin is made from a historically documented maker! And the detail on the tail is so lovely, it’s a beautiful flower. Maybe a flower from Scotland? Scotland has been such an important part of my year, so this was all meant to be!

It has already encouraged me to practice. Yippee!!
