Treasure Find!!!!!!!!

So, last night I was doing the whole treadmill torture thing, when what should I come across on Craigslist?!
An old sewing box!
I immediately stopped torturing myself and made the call. Tonight it and all it's wonders are mine!

Inside was a trove of amazing goodies...

We dated this jar to a 1938 ad in a South Carolina newspaper.

A couple door to door insurance salesman needle books...1930's.

Buttons for 15 cents,

Paper tapes,

Patches from an old Ohio market "Buckeye Tempo",

Old singer needles,

more paper tapes,


old thread,

4 yrds for 10 cents!

This stuff is sweet!

more old patches,

and a bunch of thread!

A great find for 35 bucks!

Sorry about some of the blurry pics, it is late and I am shaking with laughter as Hubby googles this stuff and we read the ads for the products and companies.

Sewing Machine has been Smokin'

Just a few pics of my projects while getting used to my new laptop.

This basket is now overflowing with close to 30 tissue covers.

(The pockets are charm squares of Summer Breeze II)

Bento Bag for my daughter's bento boxes.

Plus a couple loaves of banana bread!

Have a fabulous weekend!

Mail Love!

A couple weeks ago around the same time as my laptop dying, I had a fabulous mail day! I had entered a giveaway from koolbeenz and won. This is what arrived! It made my day and now I can finally share it.

It is a charm pack of Summer Breeze II! I have already dipped into it and will post that project later.

When you have a chance, pop over and give koolbeenz some LOVE!

After trying for a week to get my dinosaur laptop to do something productive, Hubby decided I was getting a new one. In 4 days I have received new glasses and a new laptop. I feel spoiled...LOL! As soon as this thing gets completely set up with it's updates and my learning how to use such new fangled tech terms, I will upload all the pics the old one stopped me in my tracks from doing. I am wishing everyone a great Monday! Now, back to reading my manual...LOL.
