Jeez, it's been pretty boring around here lately! No great State Parks to share with you, no garage sales lately.
Saturday, I got my Nonna/mom's sewing machine from my Dad's house. Finally! He's been holding it hostage for the past year! Actually, he was using it to display his collection of old model cars and when I offered to bring him a old sofa table that he could use instead, he agreed! My friend Marie has a truck so she graciously offered to help me. We had breakfast as we usually do on Saturday mornings and then ran right over there!
I played on that treadle when I was a kid! Holding on and bouncing up and down! I remember my grandmother sewing on it. It's missing some parts and the cabinet is in much need of restaining but I love it for it's sentimental value! The drawers are loaded with my Nonnas threads and zippers, pins and needles and probably some of the missing parts too!
Fall is so close now I can smell it in the air! It was only 62 degrees today! I have a love/hate thing with Fall. I love the colors of the leaves changing, the cool nights for sleeping, apple cider and donuts, walking down the sidewalk kicking dead leaves.
I hate Fall because it is the end of summer and the beginning of another long cold Winter!
Well, I'm off this Friday so I probably will be hitting some garage sales. Plus we are going to Saugatuck and South Haven this weekend! I plan on watching the sun set on Lake Michigan and we have plans to hit at least three state parks for some metal detecting. I'll have lots of pictures to share! Should be fun!
