Do you know what this really is?

I had brunch with a friend the other day, and she gave me this little vintage Singer statue.  She said she saw it at a shop, and thought of me.  It a cute little statue, and I love vintage Singers, so I loved this statue!  I told her I would have to share it here on my blog, so Thanks, Sunita!

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...

Shadow is now 3-1/2 months old.
Shadow was resting on my legs while I rested back in the easy chair.


Happy Stitching!!

  5. Love the sewing machine statue and the necklace! Your Shadow is the cutest little puppy (after my own two little puppy-girls, of course). I just finished a smocked daygown from a man's shirt and am working on my 'signature look' for PR&P's sew-along. Have fun with your embroidery!

  6. Hi Sylvia, it is so nice to meet you. I'm still making my way through the blogs from Vicki's Grow Your blog party and I'm so glad I stopped over at your blog - it is so cute and colorful! I just had to become your newest follower and hope you can make over to my blog for a visit and maybe even follow me too. I just love those puppy pictures... my kitty naps on my lap like that when I knit on our sofa! :D They know how to find the warm spots! LOL!

    Hugs,
