Junk Love Wednesday

Sharing finds and treasures with you!

This saree is beautifully beaded!


It is good to visit my local used bookstore.  This one is my favorite!  If you live in Central Florida, it is located on Hwy 17-92, near State Road 434 in Longwood.  The sign simply says, 'Used Bookstore'.

This book was an awesome find!  It contains all of the stitches and how to do them of crocheting, knitting, embroidering, macrame, rugmaking, sewing, and tatting.  This book will be greatly used, again!  Although, it looks as though never used.

Well, I came home the other day to a Singer treadle sewing machine at my front door.  The wood cabinet was in the worst shape, however, the machine head and irons were salvageable.  See, sometimes the machines 'find' you!  So that evening, I dismantled the irons from the cabinet, as well as took out the machine head.  When hubby gets home from the road, we are going hunting for a butcher block (maybe, I can find one in a thrift store or on Freecycle) and then have an opening cut for the machine to drop into.  I'll keep you posted on the WIP!

Enjoy your weekend!  Until next time...

Peace and Junk Love!
