The find..

by Kate on March 31, 2011

I celebrated my birthday earlier this week and was whisked off for a day of antique shopping.

The birthday gods were smiling.

In the only antique store that was open, right up the back, in a dusty old cupboard…look what was waiting for me.

The Find

A fully operational, miniature, manual sewing machine and in none other than blue.


What a day. Thanks for the adventure Kirst xx

Oh, HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you, Possum. You weren’t also gifted a metal detector, perchance? It’s looking like you’re on a treasure-finding roll…
