Today we decided to go antiquing with two of my sisters. What a great way to spend a Saturday! We really enjoyed each others' company, the beautiful furniture and the dishes. I actually said I had seen enough dishes with roses on them for the day. That was before my last find! I'll show post pictures of those finds on a later post. This post is about my new little baby. Check this out:
I'm hopeful that this little bird will be a clue to the brand and mfg. date. I'm planning to post these pics on the Quilting Board in the hopes that someone who deals with or collects antique machines can give me some info on this one. I'll keep you posted as I discover information. What do you think? Isn't it just darling? Richard and I looked at it but, when the shop owner gave us a price, I walked away. Richard kept going back to the machine and talking to the guy, but the price was pretty firm. Eventually Rich purchased the machine but didn't say anything until we got home. I was so surprised and thrilled! Isn't he just the sweetest? Of course, had I known that he bought the machine, I might have kept my hands off the other items!
I've been interested in antique machines for a long time now. Share your antique machine story. Are you lucky enough to have one? What's the brand and date? Do you use it? Leave a comment. You know I love to hear from you!
