Oh my word prims! I am so very excited!! I have been wanting one of these for over 20 years but they are so expensive. At the last garage sale I hit today it was there with no price. The man was really talking it up so I finally said "Well, I know you want more for it than what I can handle, how much?". He said "Oh... $15". Me: "WHAT?!?!?! Only $15? Are you sure??". I heard the "fif" sound come out of his mouth so I thought he was gonna say $50, lol! Isn't she a beauty?? The treadle is broke. I know my dad can fix that but not sure that I want it fixed... might leave it as it is. Sorry for the background, I couldn't wait to show you so I took pics of it in the garage as soon as I pulled it out of the truck, hehe.
Then when you open it up, here's what's inside...
It even has a needle! The little bit that I've looked up on the internet so far about "Ruby" says they aren't worth much but I don't care about that... it's worth a lot to me! Everything still turns with no trouble or squeaking!
I'm so glad nothing is going on this weekend so I can get it cleaned up and moved into the house! Happy Mother's Day to me!! =]
I bought this sweet little Raggedy Andy at an antique mall a couple of weeks ago for $6. I collect Raggedy's and this handmade one I love because it's little heart says I heart Jodi. That is my sister's name and the way it's spelled too. How sweet!
Another find at the antique mall for $3. I didn't even have to do anything to it but wipe it down really good. We are a family that eats all of our meals at the table together so having a wonderfully prim centerpiece for my table just hasn't worked because it's constantly getting moved out of the way and then the hassle of finding somewhere for it to sit. So this lazy susan is perfect for us.
I've bought lots of pieces this past month that I was going to re-do this weekend but now they will have to wait till I get the machine cleaned up first. Any ideas on what to use on the actual machine to clean it up? I'm afraid to touch it. Guess I'll have to do some googling on the internet to find out.
Well that is it for this post. Thanks for stopping by for a visit. I always appreciate your time spent with me. Have a beautiful weekend and wonderful Mother's Day!
