    I went to an estate sale this morning and saw this girl they hadit marked ten dollars but Mom girl said it was my birthday and the woman gave it to her for the five dollars she had in her pocketso she could give it to me for my birthday

    Table is pretty bad shape but I think she will be pretty when she gets cleaned up

    She's going to be absolutely beautiful when you get her cleaned up and sewing! Are you going to use her?
    What a nice birthday gift! :)

    I've never seen one like that! Can't wait to see her once you give her a beauty treatment.

    Very cool! I just found a link to some history about it: http://www.sewmuse.co.uk/newhome.htm.

    She will be beautiful after cleanup. Enjoy!

    SWEET!!!! That was probably the best $5 spent this weekend!

    That will be a nice machine when it is cleaned up and it will clean up nicely! Just follow my tutorials on the cleaning and you will be okay.

    That is definitely a wonderful birthday gift. She will be beautiful once you get her spiffed up. Congrats.
