    Another use for a Vintage Machine

    My daughter spotted this vintage machine on a post leading to someone's house near Kona, Hawaii. She snapped a couple of photos for me. I don't know whether to cry or smile.

    I would be overly tempted to do a covert night time rescue if I saw that.

    Maybe they put it there because someone was stopping by to pick it up and they wouldn't be home at that time. Well, one could always hope. LOL

    I love it! What a great way to enjoy an old vintage machine that may be well past restoration and signals that a lover of quilts and/or old vintage machines lives within! Thanks for sharing; it made me smile!!

    Smile! You'll use more muscles!! :-) after cleaning out 5 metal buildings belonging to my Dad, I no longer believe everything has to be used. Sometimes it can just be repurposed. At least this isn't in the trash heap. IMHO
