I had it on the kitchen island when 12-year old DD2 came home from school. She sees this little Singer on the counter, and before she even touches it she says "Ooooh, what a cute little bank!" I was so surprised. I asked her how she knew it was a bank, and she says matter-of-factly, "Well, what else could it be?" You know what? She was right. There is a little slot under the sewing machine for coins, and the bottom of the statue has a plug for the coin access.
Isn't it funny how kids can see things for what they really are, and here my friend and I see a vintage Singer, and that was good enough? I got a kick out of that. I commend you too, if you knew right away it was a bank!
While I am showing off vintage Singer stuff, here is my necklace I picked up at local quilt show. It is now one of my favorites!

What are you working on this week? I currently have a stack of shirts to embroider for the Montessori school. I'd love to see what's your current project. Share your post at Funday!

And finally, I can't pass up an opportunity to share a couple recent puppy photos...
