Zombie Baby OMG What's wrong with that babies hand!

Happy Birthday to my late husband! I miss your silliness.  I remember turning my head and seeing her hand move back and forth. I was like OMG she can move her hands like she waving! But Nooooo It was grampy.
Love you honey! 
Thinking about you every day!

Catholic Vintage Tabernacle Music Box Nightlight from the 1940s.

 It's so hard to believe it's been 70 or 80 years of life for this music box. 

I buy this stuff and wonder who bought for the first time. What was their life like back then? This was probably sold just after WWII. Maybe it was in a Catholic veteran's home, just back from the war. I am probably not to far off :)

I think this might be more of a Boomer" thing, than anyother generation. Myself a boomer, remember this kind of stuff in Grandma and Grandpa's home. You might not and that's ok. 

This was cool and unique back then and I think it is now.  It might make a nice gift for a Catholic friend or Confirmation gift. I would even love it as a Communion Gift. 

In 20 years it will be 100 years old! 

Teach children to appreciate the past for the future.

Catholic Unique Vintage 1940's Lighted Music Box with Mary

I thought you might get a smile from this. It’s a music box, night light devotional. Probably from the mid-1940s. It has an Art Deco look before we put fins on cars.

Mary is behind the lighted doors waiting for your prayers. She lights up with a push button located in the back. There is a music box key and when you open the doors it triggers the song to play. I wish I knew the tune! The cross on top needs to be reglued back on. Otherwise, the music box works and it's cute as a button!

Measurements are 9" inches high by 4.5" length by 5" wide. The cord is a bit old-fashioned, but I have not had any issues. It uses a night light bulb, included. 

I do have a video on my Facebook page if you would like to view it. :
