Music Boxes

Post by LoveHistory » Thu December 30th, 2010, 6:29 pm

In my case musical snow globes. I keep them in their boxes because my kids destroyed a few. I've got a heart shaped one with doves that plays "Unchained Melody."

Had one of Noah's Ark that played "Singin' in the Rain."

Wish I'd purchased the one with the lady mice sewing that played "Nine to Five."

I love snow globes but they don't have to be musical. I don't have a big enough place to really collect them, especially the bigger ones. But I am a bit of snow globe snob - I hate the ones with glitter in them, I think it looks cheap and tacky.

How fascinating! What made you start collecting them?? (I love knowing the "why" behind people's collections.)

Well I've always loved them, and had one or two and my husband (we were dating at the time) gave me one for Christmas. Then it became a thing every year for a while. One year I even got one from my youngest sister (that one got broken, unfortunately).

I have a white and gold one with a castle in it. It's been up out of reach of the kids for so long I can't remember what song it plays.
