Gifts From Good Friends

This telephone booth is actually a coin box. It's from our good friends JD and Max's humans. Aunty Diana just love this "phone booth". She said during her younger days, they actually have this kind of phone booth in the village where she grew up. *whisper* Can you guess how old Aunty Diana is? *tsk* *tsk*

This is the front of the booth...

On the right of the booth...

This is the left of the booth...

And this is the back. Can you see who's down there?

What is he doing?!

Minnie, what have you got there?

Aunty Diana was visiting Good Morning Mary Sunshine where she saw a jewelry box with a ballerina. That reminded her of a gift she received in 1979 from a very good friend of hers. It's this musical box with a dancing ballerina too! It was a birthday gift.

Aunty Diana told Joy of Good Morning Mary Sunshine, that she'll blog about this musical box that she has been keeping since 1979. Aunty Diana has not seen that friend of hers for a long time now. Her friend has been married to an Australian and is now living in Canberra.

Dance on ballerina...

That wouldn't be complete without seeing her dance to the tune of Für Elise, would it?

What a lovely gift from JD and Max! There's a house near me that has a phone booth in the front yard that looks very similar to the one pictured here. It doesn't work and they just have it for decoration.

I've never had a jewelry box with a pretty ballerina like that. I do have a jewelry box though! I kind of think maybe I like yours better as mine also doesn't play any music.

We like the coin box best. The phone boxes like that are mostly gone now. But occasionally you see one that's been left.

That music box brings back lots of old and beautiful memories to Mom. And she also remembers phone booths like that. We even have one something like it in our Christmas village decorations.

Happy weekend.

what a cool gift. we thought the ballerina might get her head bitten off. glad she's ok. :)

JD and Max said...

Hi Santa - we're so glad your Aunty Diana likes the coin box. You know what? FH told us she didn't notice the little doggie leaving pee-mail when she bought it, so she did giggle when she saw these photos! She said those phone boxes always used to smell funny and now she knows why, he he he!

FH also used to have a ballerina jewellery box but sadly no more so she loved seeing this, especially the video. But hey, your ballerina spins like the clappers, he he!

Hi there Santa,

The coin box is really cool. We also like the pup on the back. The jewelry box sure brings back good memories of childhood. Mommy had one before too and she loved watching the dancer spin around and listening to the sweet sound of the music.

Thanks for dropping us a comment in our GABE post and we are having fun participating in this event. We are happy that you are part of it too. Weeeeee

Your jewelry box and ballerina is much prettier than mine! I love the mirror idea. That is such a cute video with Minnie inspecting the jewelry box. Guess what... my husband has the exact same telephone booth coin holder. I had first seen your's when Max and JD's humans came to visit you.

Joy said...

P.S. Diana, you sure have clean floors!
