My First Estate Sale and a little egg............

I have wanted to go to an estate sale and after
inspiration from Beth, I went today. Armed with
my newspaper and directions, I marched on. Since
I was short on time, I decided to go to two sales
that were about 1/2 mile apart. I did not have any
luck at the first sale, but I did at the second house.
My prize purchase today was this beautiful, old Singer
sewing machine. I started sewing about 22 years ago
and have desired an old machine to have out for display.
I have passed on several that I have seen at the antique
stores as the price tag was too high. So, today was my
day and the price tag was $5. The gentleman who sold
it to me said that it was his mom's machine and she was
born in 1920. I will cherish it!

I also mailed out my Easter Egghunt swap to Vivian.
We each made 2 eggs,Vivian will swap them out
and in April, we will post photos of the eggs we
received and the eggs we made and the hunt begins
to find the identity of the creators. I made this
pink egg for Vivian as a small thank you for hosting.

Have a lovely last day of February! Kana
