Last Friday, after my Christmas breakfast at Cracker Barrel with some coworkers, I took off to Macon to an estate sale that we had heard about. It was at the home of a 99-year-old lady who just recently passed away. I picked up a few things, a vintage Santa face plate and some Santa taper candles. I got a music box there, too, for $5. It was broken, had an angel and musical instruments missing and something was missing from the center (I wasn't sure what) but it still played. It played "Silver Bells" so beautifully that I got it, regardless of its condition.
I got out to my car and looked it up, trying to find out something about it, how old it was, where it came from, that kind of thing.
I found one, in perfect condition on eBay, so I got it, too. It arrived today! Now I'm able to see what it looks like and that, in the center, is a Christmas tree that was missing from the first one.
It's so pretty! And plays so sweetly.
It's my favorite thing so far this Christmas.
