So...last Friday I popped Allie in her car seat and we headed up the lake to do some shopping.  It was a beautiful day and the lake was so calm and pretty...but it's a good thing I was looking on the OTHER side of the road at one point, because there was a special treasure just sitting near the edge of the road, waiting for a new owner!
It took ALL my strength to get this wonderful find in the back of my Acadia (Allie was no help at all - lol), but I got it in and am just tickled with it!  I think my whole body was shaking for a 1/2 hour or more afterwards...I'm not sure if it was from excitement or the extreme exertion I had to expend getting it in the back of the car.

All this FREE!
Complete with original manuals, a letter, belts, attachments...it's a genuine pedal sewing machine and I am in LOVE with it!


Here's a couple other pictures to share...
Steph, Maria & I took a stroll down the road on Sunday....

These views are one of the main reasons we fell in love with This Olde House

Some of the girls - out enjoying the Fall weather

The old black compost bin that was here when we moved here makes a great 'emergency shelter' for the girls if a hawk happens by.


and finally...
I'm having a quick little contest on my Facebook page so why not grab your broom and fly on over to find out how you can win.


  1. Morning Wendy, great score indeed, love it.......Beautiful Fall pictures, love the Kitty with the witches hat, to cute.......Blessings Francine.
