    This wall means a lot to me because of the history with it. The treadle sewing machine was my great grandmothers. The ironing board we found on the side of the road, we brought it home and sanded it. The doll dress hanging on it my mother made me for Christmas 1973. The baby dress was mine 1969. Shelf to the right has a cast iron gasoline iron made in 1903, my parents gave us. The cabinet to the left has old sewing items we have picked up here and there, as well as, some that was from my family and my husbands family. The giant scissors bought at hobby lobby and painted, the giant needle my dh made out of a dowel rod on his wood lathe. The big needle were knitting needles I painted. the BIG buttons we made on my DH wood lathe. The dress was my mothers dress from a sweet heart banquet she and my father went to in 1962. Just wanted to share.

    It looks very nice. I thought for a minute that the doll dress was for a tiny tiny baby. And I love the dress on the dress form.

    That looks wonderful, does it inspire you to keep your sewing room clean, just to highlight it?

    Thank you. Mom as kept it boxed up all these yrs, I told her when something happened to her and Daddy I would like to have it if my brother and sister didn't care. Well, she talked to them and they said they didn't care. So they gave it to me. (The family keeper of things) My husband picked up the former coat rack from a neighbors trash ( he turns wood and loves to reperpose things) anyway, we found the dress form at a thrift store one day and it fit perfect.
