Vintage Christmas Monday


This is my second week sharing in the Vintage Christmas Monday hosted by Joan at Anything Goes Here blog. I am really excited to share this item. My Snowman music box. My mom has had it since I was little. I'm not sure exactly when I took possession of it. Every year when I unpack it, there is always something missing or broken from it and I have to search for old pieces and parts to repair it. Fortunately this year I didn't have to fix anything. It does lean a little bit, but that just gives it character. I'm hoping it will last long enough to give to one of my children one day.

Thank you for all the nice compliments. Jules, I have tons of ornaments from friends and even ones that I buy when I visit somewhere new. It's fun to go through them all and remember where and who they came from.

How special to have your mom's music box. Does it still play a tune? Frosty the Snowman?
