The world of miniatures fascinates and music boxes tingle the heart.
Put them both together and you have a winner.
At a yard sale, my eagle eyes spotted a small wooden box with glass on top.
Lifting the cover momentarily took my breath away.
Two horses pulling people rode around a lighted Christmas tree, the size of half your baby finger!
A teeny tiny lighted house (shown to the right) was part of the scene, too, as well as an "itsy bitsy" snowman, bridge, people and so on. You get the drift.
All the while as the miniature scene enfolded before one's eyes, the box played "Deck the Halls."
The music box was set on small, knobs for "feet" and one was missing. Consequently, the price was a mere $2.99.
Brand new, I'm sure this piece went for a lot more so I was kind of glad the foot was missing!
(Hubs could easily replace it!)
Recently, the music box came down from a window sill in my home office so I could show it to my baby granddaughter.
She loved it, too, and wanted to pick up the teeny horses in her tiny fingers!
