Join us in admiring the wonderful world of mechanical music. We can not think of a better way to do so than showcasing this stunning collection of music box pianos from Music Box Attic. We are enchanted :: We are enthralled. Piano music boxes are definitely our new obsession. In full disclosure, I must admit I love pianos. The very first piece of “grown up” furniture my husband and I bought together was an ebony Yamaha baby grand piano. Yes, you read that right – we bought a piano way before a dining room table, and even before we bought sofas for our living room. Today this same piano graces our living room, sitting smack dab in the middle of our house and continues to be a source of personal joy and hours of enjoyment for our family and friends.
Baby Grand Piano Musical Jewelry Box
Now that my children are all grown and moved out, what they say they most miss (other than mom's cooking and laundry prowess) is our piano. So as a housewarming gift, I have bought each of them this custom baby grand wood black piano music box with jewelry space. I picked this particular piano for three reasons:
……1. The price – at 42% off list price this piano music box is an incredible deal plus I received an 10% OFF since I used this month's coupon code.…2. It most resembles our home piano and I was able to customize each with a song that would be meaningful to each of my children
……3. I loved the fact that there was a small jewelry space where the boys could keep their family heirloom cufflinks. And where Izzy could store some of the special pieces handed down to her from her grandmothers.

We are obsessed with MomMeMatch's off-the-cuff comment on their Facebook page >> “If there was such a thing as Valentine's Day stocking stuffers, these Valentine's Day bracelets and key rings would be perfect!” So we started searching and searching and searching some more. We cannot find anything that even remotely resembles Christmas Stockings for Valentine's Day. But we did find some lovely examples of Valentine's Day mantel decorations. We love red pillar candles combined with vases of pink tulips and red roses. Throw in a few apothecary jars filled with red, white and pink candies, a heart-shaped box of Valentine's Day chocolates, and fun heart garland. And now for the really fun part. Let's add what we are calling Valentine's Day stockings in the form of mini-mailboxes or mini-buckets for Valentines Day. Continue Reading →
My children still tease me about some of our Chanukah traditions. I must admit, with eight days of Hanukkah gift giving and a limited budget, I often found myself pushing the boundaries of creativity. I often used the holiday to buy them “gifts” that satisfied “needs” rather than “wants” and always designated at least one day to reinforce the importance of Judaism and the Jewish traditions of performing mitzvot and giving tzedakah.
FYI >> We always switched up the order of the nights so the kids never knew which night would be the dreaded (often embarrassing) personal hygiene night

How the game is played…
The game is fun, because each person gets to select a wrapped gift, unwrap it and then possibly lose it to someone else and have to select again. Being able to select from unwrapped gifts or “steal” a gift someone is holding is what makes this game so much fun. Continue Reading →
