    Yipee! I found one.

    I stopped at the local Goodwill after Church this morning and look what was waiting for me.....I had wanted a Singer with Lotus blossum decals and they are had to find in this area......especially not in a treadle......I haven't started cleaning it yet and the bottom of the case is trashed......but I think she is pretty. This is the last machine I said I "needed" for my collection. ( I am not saying it is the last one I will buy) Ismac's says it is a 66 made Jan. 18, 1908

    Green with envy here. That's one of two specific machines that I want for our collection. The other is a Wings decal 115. There are others that I'd love to have but those I keep an eye out for those two.

    Well, I just turned a particularly ugly shade of envy green!

    Way to go, girl! That's one BEAUTIFUL 66!

    Wish I had room for more, but three machines and two sergers are the limit of space I can find unless DH gest rid of some of his toys, then I might have more room. This MH is just not big enough with his collections.

    I've never seen the lotus decals. Beautiful, though.
