More goodies...

My computer has not been liking me the last couple of days, and has just taken F-O-R-E-V-E-R to upload photos.
Anyway, here's some more of my awesome vintage haul!

A fire-screen with a sailing ship on it-will come up nice with a good polish-$10

A Bebarfeld's treadle sewing machine...with bluebirds on it!! BLUEBIRDS!!!
I got it at a garage sale for $100, and it came with it's original book (which is adorable) and the original attachments case. The sewing machine is from about 1928-1930.

I got this dressing table (which I assume would have originally had a mirror) for FREE! I will strip and stain it, and put vintage handles back on it, because at the moment, although it does look kinda funky, silver green and red spraypaint kinda wont look that wonderful in my house.
More to come if my computer behaves...


  1. Lovely blog you have here!
    That dresser looks like it will come up beautifully :)
    I have a sewing machine very similar to that one you bought it was my grandmothers and I think her mothers before that - they are so beautiful - not at all like their rather ugly (but functional) modern day versions.

    If you have the time I would love for you to come by my blog - you might be interested in my historical fashion posts :)

  2. Gorgeous sewing machine - reminds me of the Singer Machine that my mam's trying to persuade my gran to let me inherit. It's covered in golden flowers is such a beautiful object in its own right.

    I'm sure somewhere we have a sewing framed as a fire screen with the same boat picture too.

  3. That dresser is going to look amazing with a paint job. For free??? I am very jealous right now.
