Being that this is Friday, I thought I'd join in on the fun of sharing pictures of some of my things. I'm not exactly clear how it works, but I assume you share pictures of little treasures such as antiques or collectibles. I don't really have any sets of things, but when I visited Wisecraft and read her coffee post almost a year ago, I knew I had to have those cups! Perhaps it's just me, but doesn't the cup just make the coffee look so good? Oh, yeah! I'm all for making my morning ritual just that much more enjoyable! So I started looking around for Russel Wright cups and saucers. Slowly over time, I accumulated a little set. Aren't they just the cutest little things? In the blog coffee post, they look regular size. Well, when mine arrived, I realized they're actually quite small. Not demi size, but smaller than I expected. Although you can also find the demi sized sets. I love the roundness and curves. I also ordered the battery operated milk frother wand. It's set to arrive any day now. Without futher ado, here's my little show 'n tell:
Mine are grey, which I really like, but there are quite a lot of colors available in this line of dishes. Trivia-wise, they were made from the 1930's to the 1950's. Russel Wright was then much like Martha Stewart is today. His line of creations covered a broad range of household items, even furniture!
And now, for my favorite little 'thang'....This is a 1948 Franklin Rotary sewing machine with a knee lift, and it includes the sewing cabinet. I like
its rustic and weathered look, so I wouldn't change a thing about it. Well, maybe clean it up a bit more.
I found it at a yard sale as we were driving by. I yelled to my sweetie 'Stop!' as soon as I saw it. Now, it's not my dream machine, but it's close enough. My dream machine would be a manual 'treadle' machine. I LOVE those machines. Anyway, back to this one.....it supposedly works, though I still haven't tried it, and the little light fixture is loose but we couldn't figure out how to attach it. The price of the machine? $25! That's a good deal for a bit of history I think.
This wraps up today's post. Thank you and God bless!
