    It was a pretty machine. Too bad it didn't find a great home to adopt it.

    I've heard of people using them as boat anchors. I guess a lot - probably the vast majority of them - wound up in junk yards or melted down for BB's or something less peaceable. I'd rather see it used as outdoor decor than that, but I agree they could have found a less worthy machine to put out there. It's destiny, by being cute and in the public eye, is to help keep the history of sewing alive. It should be proud. Someday a kid riding by will ask, "Mom, what's that?" and a new vintage sewing machine aficionado will be born.
    We act as though comfort and luxury were the chief requirements of life, when all we need to make us really happy is something to be enthusiastic about.
