I Think I Have A Problem

That's right.  An addiction to thrifting!  
I was in the SA this weekend and found some GREAT buys. 
I got this beautiful desk for my son.  
(I have a similar one from my grandpa)

This is what it looks like inside.  These pics were at the store so not the best lighting.

I found these 2 pillow cases.  
The purple one is machine embroidered but the crocheted edging is gorgeous.  
The other one was hand embroidered!

I found this adorable tin too

Inside looked like this

Bottom of the tin.

I hear you asking about the sewing machine right?

Isn't she a beauty!!!
Even has the original manual.

The cabinet needs to be refinished but the machine is fabulous!  
The tension spring is good.  
The hand wheel moves up and down as does the needle.  
There is a bobbin case and the cords all look brand new!

In the photo above you can see two silver buttons on the right on the base.  
Those drop the feed dogs!

I can't wait to plug her in and see how she runs!

My friend, Ellen and her husband dropped off her Treadle last week too.

Shhhhhhh don't tell my husband.
