    Check out my new avatar!!!Look at what my wonderful sons bought me for Christmas. We were working and drove by a local sewing machine technician's shop. He had several machines outside for sale. I saw this 1925 handle turned Singer machine in its beautiful little wooden house. I just had to go back and look. Even though the price was unbelievably reasonable, I thought I could surely use the money for other things. My very thoughtful son would not take no for an answer and bought this for my Christmas present. Then called his brother and told him what THEY were buying me for Christmas. My other son was very happy he did not have to look for something. I was so overwhelmed, it was hard to hold back the tears.

    My younger son came by today to visit "Dolly" and was really impressed with his purchase. Had to try it out himself. Dolly sews like a dream and her stitches are beautiful. Her wooden house has one small very shallow scratch on one side, but for an 85 year old lady she is beautiful to her new mommy. She has her original decals all in good condition. Someone special must have really loved her before she entered into an estate sale. Now she has been adopted into a loving home where she will be cherished for years to come.

    I am so happy doing the happy dance every time I look at it!!!!
