    Not a sewing machine, but certainly an antique.

    This is a little something we picked up on our way back home from the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta. Not a vintage sewing machine, but it is an antique from 1897. Hope some of you antique enthusiasts like it.

    Some people are like Slinkies - not really good for anything, but you still can't help but chuckle when you see one tumble down the stairs.

    I play the organ...this is beautiful! I would LOVE to get a chance to play it! Does it work? Looks like it's in good shape...you guys were in the right place at the right time. Do you play?

    Wow! Epic! Looks like a church organ seeing as it's so ornate.

    That's a beauty! Congrats, I think it is high time you learn to play the organ , and make a video so we can see and hear what you have done. lol. What a neat organ. When my parents and I lived in Ky, in the 1960, the elderly couple that we rented an apt. from had a beautiful upright organ like that , with the pump pedals and pulls. I played it some, but that was so many years ago now. Theirs did not have red, but was a beautiful carved oak organ.
