Today I thought I'd share with you one of my favorite things, my Grandma's antique treadle sewing machine. When she passed away many years ago, I was fortunate enough to inherit it.
I keep it in our sunroom, where I can enjoy it every day.
I've accessorized it with two metal pitchers that are also some of my favorite things. I found the tallest one on the left a year or two ago at Home Goods, and I got the beautiful rose one last fall on a trip to Mackinac Island.
I've also added a bundle of vintage books (which I have added to my Etsy shop, but thought I would enjoy them for a bit here!).
Look at the beautiful details of the drawers! I love the nobs, too!
I even have the warranty of Grandma's machine! She purchased it as a young woman way back in July of 1913, before she married my Grandpa. The warranty said that it was good for 25 years! Can you believe it?! Now days, we are lucky to get a one year warranty!
A bit rusty, a bit dusty, but still very pretty, I think!
Grandma even kept the original manual. Below you will see the parts that were available for re order, most of which were just pennies a piece!
I just love these old graphics!
Thanks for letting me share a few of my memories and favorite things with you today. Hope you have a great week!
