The Viscount

I have news!  Wonderful news!  I... have....
 
Drum roll please...
 
Purchased a vintage sewing machine in it's own darling sewing table!!! 
 
As you probably guessed, I am very excited.  
 
 
It is the most unique sewing machine I have ever seen.  And it sews beautifully!  I adore everything about it!  Really - have you ever seen a robin's-egg-blue sewing machine?  It reminds me of a soda fountain and a retro rocket ship rolled into one.  I think it was made sometime in the 50s.  And... I made the bargain of the century by getting the machine, table, a chair, a sheet of glass to set on top of the table, and a can of touch-up paint for $20!  
 

I am smitten with the table, too... the cunning little thing!  If only I had a place to put it, now...  that would be perfect!  As it is, I guess I'll have to keep it on the back bunk.  Only then I can't open it.  Patience, patience...
 
*Slam*  Now we can go home!!
 
(Name that line...!;)
 
~Happy Trails!~

  1. This is a ridiculously late comment--after all, it's a three-year-old post-- but I was browsing back posts and came across this one and couldn't resist squealing a little over the quote at the end. Fiddler on the Roof! One of my very favoritest films! Congratulations on the amazing bargain (very late congratulations... heehee...)
