Show and Tell Friday: Music Box

Kelli at There’s No Place Like Home hosts “Show and Tell Friday” asking Do you have a something special to share with us? It could be a trinket from grade school, a piece of jewelry, an antique find. Your show and tell can be old or new. Use your imagination and dig through those old boxes in your closet if you have to! Feel free to share pictures and if there’s a story behind your special something, that’s even better! If you would like to join in, all you have to do is post your “Show and Tell” on your blog, copy the post link, come over here and add it to Mr. Linky. Guidelines are here.

My good friend Carol and I went out to lunch Tuesday for what I thought was a “catch up with each other” time, but she had actually planned it as a belated birthday gift. Of course, we did catch up with each other too, which was the best part, and enjoyed the reopening of one of our favorite restaurants. Carol also gave me a birthday gift then:

Music box

It’s not only a lovely box, but a music box:

It plays “Great Is Thy Faithfulness.” I’m not quite sure where to put it and what to put in it yet, but I love it. 🙂 It fits right in with my decor.

I also wanted to show the updated progress on the cross stitch piece I am working on for those who might be interested. I enjoy seeing works-in-progress of others, so I thought some might like to see how this is coming along.

The pitcher there looks a little similar to the one on the music box, doesn’t it?

You can find other show and tell entries or join in on the fun at Kelli’s. One reason I enjoy this meme is not just to see nice “stuff,” though that’s fun, too, but because it’s a nice way to get to know blogging friends by seeing what is special in their lives.

  2. What a beautiful box! I love anything with a teapot, cup and saucer on it.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and for your kind comments. Yes, I know how you feel – it’s been five years now since my Mom died and I miss her dreadfully. Do you ever have those moments when there’s something you want to share with your Mom or ask her, and you can hardly bear that she’s not with you anymore? As a mother of a teenager, I often have those moments!!

    Have a great week.

  3. Whoa! That is one gorgeous music box! And what a special treat to have it from your friend…and it being a surprise to boot! A great song also!!!

    Have a super long weekend. Be safe, be happy, and enjoy the last ‘days of summer’!! Soon, Autumn….yay!!!!
