I loved this old "Singer" sign. It was sold and was headed to California. This was in one of the many antique stores that we visited on our vacation. Next to quilting, antiquing would be my second hobby. I almost hyperventilate when I get close to an antique shop.

I am always taking photos of things made out of wooden spools. I believe these will become more collectible because they don't use wooden spools for thread anymore. Do you think 20 years from now we will see furniture made from plastic spools?!

This is my new sewing machine pin cushion. If you pull on the little red ribbon on the right side the tape measure comes out.
This is also new to my collection of whimsical pin cushions. I call him a bellboy because that is what he looks like to me. Do you think he is twerking?
I took a photograph of this sunbonnet sue potholder bag. I love everything sunbonnet sue!
This is a photograph of a handkerchief bag. Does anyone use those anymore?
This is a working antique wood sewing machine. It had a price tag of $4,000.00 on it and was in a glass case. Can you imagine sewing on this? I guess it would beat hand sewing back in the day.
This Brainerd, Armstong & Co. spool cabinet was my big purchase on the trip. I love all the glass front drawers and the mirror in the middle. It is on a folding table right now because I need to clean out all the drawers.
