  • Cute and Different

    I saw this for sale on eBay and am sure it's factory made, but why not make up one using your own design and plans? This would make a cute gift for Someone Special in your life. If you would like to see the eBay listing, look up number 390009682148. It runs through early evening on Black Friday.

    The listing is with an eBay trading assistant which is a selling service. They keep some of the $$$ and the seller gets some $$$ once it's sold and payment is good.

    I was looking for parts to fix up an antique sewing machine and happened upon this listing.

    In case if you're wondering what's special, this is a music box made to look like an antique sewing machine. The tredel does up and down and the spool of thread rotates as it plays the old song "Buttons & Bows". The YouTube link will let you hear the song with words. I think it's from a movie long before my days of going to the movies.

    Dina Shore sang this song a lot. I think it was also in a Bob Hope movie.

      It was Doris Day who sang it. I can remember her in a blue dress with a white collar, but I can't think of the name of the movie. ( I could tell you all the words to the song, tho) Oh ya, the dress had buttons all down the front and she had a big bow in the back of her hair. (I'm older than dirt, you know)
