My Toy-Sewing Machine Collection


  I have a HUGE crush on these toy Sewing machines!!! They are so stinkin' cute!!! I have started a collection of them. I only have 9. They are very hard to find... and they are not cheap! So, I have set myself some rules so I don't go bankrupt in collecting them...LOL!!!

#1- I have to find them in person...No shopping online.
#2- Have a budget...I stay under 65.00 dollars for these little guys.

 And because of these two rules...my collection is small. I could find them all over the Internet, but almost all of them are over 85.00 - 100.00 and sometimes even higher. So, my collection is small. And I love it.

I have paired each of my little machines with a quiltie that I made years ago. This one I also added a vintage toy poodle.

              This one has another thing I love... wooden spools!!
And sometimes I am blessed by wonderful friends that give these machines as presents...as this baby was gifted to me by Karen Valentine.

And this baby was spotted by my Hubby. He was very proud of himself to have found it.


And finally the first one that started my obsession...I came across this little baby and had to have her. And now when I go junking or antique shopping...I'm always on the look out. 

Thanks for stopping by....I can't believe we are in 2017!!!
But, okay....Let's do this...Here's to a wonderful Art making year!!!

Oh, the thrill of the hunt! You're wise to limit yourself for shopping online because you'd deprive your husband of the pride of spotting, and yourself, too. They are definitely stinkin' cute.

I never maintain my machine and that's a big no-no on my part. I just have never really known what to do! Verycozyhome
