An unexpected present

Scott came over for lunch today & when he walked in he said he had a present for me but he had left it in the garage  because it was kinda dirty & he wasn't sure I would want it.
"Are you kidding?"  I love it it....dirt and all..........he knows me so well!  Popster, on the other hand, just shook his head & walked away!
It so cool & I can just visualize it,  with a "make-over" of course,  hanging in my sewing room
Someone obviously made this...if you notice those are old measuring  cups at the top...they swivel out & have buttons & pins in them.
It closes up & has a handle on the top to make it completely portable.
The backing & pockets are some kind of heavy material that was put on with upholstery tacks.  Scott said he could make a back for it out of veneer....we'll see.
 Just what I need with only approx 2 weeks before I go back to work!  I still have a zillion & one projects that were planned!
 Stayed tuned for the big reveal....just don't hold your breath.  It may be a while!
Do you think it still works?
Imagine ....sewing machine oil for 30 cents!
Tracing wheel - deluxe model no less- 70 cents!

  1. Excellent find. What great stuff you have there. I think the tracing wheel might need a quick squirt of WD-40 but other than that it should work like a treat. And you won't have to push hard cos the rust should mark things perfectly.

    I wonder what the miracle chemical actually is?

    1. I'm sure it's something that was banned years ago...I'd better not open it!

  2. I'm drooling over those vintage rulers! I bet someone somewhere will pay for that old Singer oil. The can looks to be in good shape. :) What a find!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY BIG BROTHER

Happy birthday to my big brother Terry...........have a wonderful day!

Round Lake Village

Every time we go to Round Lake we wander down streets we've never seen before
A little people house
This garden was gorgeous
Look if you buy this house you definitely need to get along with your neighbors!
This house is even smaller & comes with a golf cart
This house really fascinated me
That stonework is incredible
They need to make it a little more welcoming

They are still working on my house

I would love to see the inside.......I hope they plan on selling it & then I can go to an open house
"Mama I have flyaway ears again today!"

Snowy day in the park

I have an abundance of snow pics.  Between last Thurs & Monday we had 20 inches of snow!  We are so done with this white stuff!
 But I do have to admit it is pretty


 Makes for great pictures
 And you'll see from the next few pics how much Molly loves it!



   We take a two second pause.....
 ......& off again




 I do hope the hornets went to Florida for the winter





 This sums up the whole walk!
Love
