Happy Birthday to Me :)


 For my Birthday,
my wonderful hubby wanted to go Antique shopping with me :)
While I was looking at embroidered handkerchiefs
he called out to me from the other room.
I told him I'd be there shortly.
The next thing I know
the owner of the shop comes in the room
and tells me that my husband wants to show me something.
Hmmmmmmm?
I came into the other room to find him all smiles
standing next to this beauty!
He had already checked it over
and decided that I "needed" to have her.
(Yes....he's awesome )

So we rescued her from the dusty Antique shop
and brought her home to live with us.
She will join my other beauties.
You can see them HERE.
According to Singer's website,
she was born in Scotland in 1910.
She is Lotus model 66K Treadle machine.
I'm still deciding on a Scottish name for her :)


Then my Mom gave me this darling vintage pin cushion!
She made new crocheted flowers for the top.
It's filled with horse hair.
Isn't it just the sweetest thing?

Birthdays are definitely a good thing :)

  14. Happy birthday dear! I love these photographs. This year I want to celebrate my birthday in a unique style. I would prefer a funky themed party at one of the prettiest party halls in Boston MA.
