So umm what the heck has happened to blogger?
Am I the only one who had a completely new view when logging in?
Not sure what to think right now, but this new view looks promising.
Firstly, thank you for your kind words of cheer from yesterday's post. I'd like to tell you that I'm feeling much better, however I received some news from Down Under this morning that although not unexpected, was a wee bit upsetting. Anyway, I plowed into work today, try to keep my thoughts clear and rushed home to admire this little beauty.
Isn't this the cutest switch ever?
I mean aside from the grime.
Although, you might be a bit grimy if you been hidden in a box for 40 years.
And these little details, seriously cute eh?
Old School details is what I call them.
They don't make stuff like this anymore.
(Do you see the little switch again, still cute ☺ )
And she folds up and packs neatly away into a sweet little box.
Which, with my gold fish brain I forgot to photograph.
And she has all her original 'bits & bobs'. Original manual, all her feet are intact, sweet little light still works (thanks to that cute little switch) and she has her original machine oil and needles.
It was ♥ love ♥ at first site.
She sews like a dream.
I'd like to thank EBay for gently prompting Mr. VW every time he logged in by showing him my recent searches - he knew I'd been admiring these for some time.
And thankful I was blessed with effective haggling skills and a hopeless shop owner who had no clue what she had!
So I got her for a steal
And of course mega big hugs and kisses to the Mister for indulging me when we stumbled across this little beauty over the long weekend lying on the floor of a very clutter thrift/junk/antique shop by the river.
I simply couldn't leave her behind.
Well I must rush off, it's hot and everyone is cranky and I'm in desperate need of a few minutes of hooky goodness before I nod off this evening.
Toodles....L x ♥
P.S. She's a Singer Featherweight 221-1 from 1936 ☺
