The Old Singer Pedal Sewing Machine and Some Other Retro Goodies

Hey Ya'll!
I hope everyone's weekend is shaping up nicely.

I thought I'd throw a quick post out on this beautiful Saturday evening.
I 'll be heading on to the work place in a little while but I thought I'd share some of my vintage loves 
that's become part of my home lately.

My Singer Pedal Sewing Machine is my new most favorite!
Like so much I won't to look at it and run my hand down it's worn grain.

I have a special love for them because I watched my Grandma Hylton sew on hers so often. All her quilt's were pieced on one so very similar.
Grandma's is still remains in the home it that it called home but now I have finally found one of my own.

I've found them before but opportunity didn't meet many before but all the stars aligned this time and I assume it was all meant to be.

Here it is as we unloaded it off the Ole Man's truck.
I came across it at a local sale that's put on in the community during Labor Day weekend.

It's was quite a find for me.

The cabinet is in a little better shape than Grandma's and the gold labeling is all in tact but much more worn than.
It's found it's home in the front room along with Priscilla, my dressform.

This little straight back chair isn't mine but I couldn't resist sharing what Mama had been up to.
The chairs were Grandma Hylton's as well but the seats had completely seen there better days 
Mama put her hand too them with these new jute seats.
I think they are adorable!

Here's my ugly little lamp I picked up.

I couldn't resist because of the map shade.
LOL..the rest of it was ugly though.

This isn't much of a picture but here the lamp sets 
beside the wing back chair 
after a shot of the cheapest flat black spray paint 
that can be purchased.

Well..think..think..think..I can't remember anything else vintage-y 
to share at the moment.
I thank you for stopping by.

Be Blessed!

  3. That sewing machine is quite a find, so happy for you! I inherited my grandma's old pedal machine, but it is not a Singer and some of the carved decorations are missing from the front.
    Like mother, like daughter - chair looks really great.
    And I like your lamp with the map shade. It's cute.

  4. Love this post! Your mom did such a great job on those seats!!!!! Seriously!

    Happy day to you and your new (old) sewing machine)!


  5. Lovely finds, Lynn. Hope you create some special projects on the sewing machine!

    Merry Christmas!
