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.
This week two of our favorite people in the world were invited to housewarming parties. Both are in their 20s. It seems that their millennial friends are throwing themselves housewarming parties every time they move to a new apartment. Any excuse to party, right? Hopefully they are doing so as a way to gather together friends and family rather than a ploy to stock their new abode. In either case, yes, you do need to bring a gift! So why not use it as a way to infuse extra meaning into the celebration.
The folks over at Things Remembered did a wonderful job of putting together an article explaining the tradition of housewarming gifting and a list of their 12 favorite housewarming party gifts along with each gift's special meaning. We have tweaked the list just a tad and added some concrete gift ideas of from our friends over at Real Estate Client Gifts and a few of our own!

But wow were we impressed when we started digging into both Qualtry.com's product line and Bourbon & Boots merchandise. Both companies sell unique handcrafted or personalized gifts with universal appeal. Continue Reading →
