Almost every birthday memory I have is in my Grandmother's dining room.
She always made me a chocolate cake and placed it on this
This may not look special but it is because it rotates and plays Happy Birthday.
When my Grandfather died and we were cleaning out the house I told my Mother, I had to take this. Too many happy memories of us singing to one another as this plate spun with a pretty homemade cake.
Grandma kept most things in the original boxes.
The box says it all!
your wind the base and then there is a lever similar to a music box so you can turn it of and on
when your ready
Still looks like it just came out of the box new!
Grandma had it wrapped in paper...from May 1965
I can show you the first time it was used
January 1965, my Great Grandmother Emma's 90th birthday
(oh look I have that tablecloth too...I just noticed!)
And the last time we used it..........
this weekend for my brother
46 years and still working
My favortie part of my blog is to be able to show you things that were used long ago and are still being used today that are family pieces. It only make sense since I am so....Sentimental.
Also joining Thrifty Things Friday
well I found it in Grandma closet and it was free.....
