Great blog party!
Aren't those Singer sewing machines the best.
My grandmothers Singer is probably the best decorative thing in my study. She bought it for 25 cts during WW II.

Have a great weekend,
Miranda

Oh, I'm jealous of the Featherweight - I want one so badly! I used my friend's machine for several months this year and loved it. Love the vintage baby shoe, too!
