The WI and vintage finds

Monday, 21 March 2011

Mondays aren't all bad! Today has been pretty good fun so far and a lovely start to the week.

I was up at the West Yorkshire Federation of Women's Institutes this morning for the membership committee meeting. I am all for getting involved and it's great to be able to help the WI grow. As usual, I came away with several tasks, so I will be busy doing my bit!

And on the way back I called into the antique shop on Armley Town Street. I keep meaning to go in and I'm glad I finally managed to visit today.

I bought a few books ...



The two little ones are for me. I will hopefully alter them and use them in scrapping and card making projects. The motorbike one is for my good friends Hayley and Flower as a bribe to get them to help me restore this ...



Mini sewing machine! I just had to have it! It does work but needs a bit of cleaning up and some oil. I keep meaning to use real stitching on my cards and scrapbook pages but it is such a faff getting out my big proper sewing machine. So once this is up and running I have no excuse!

And to top it all off, the sun is shining! Lovely!

Glad you had a good Monday. What a fabulous little haul you got in the antique shop but the picture I especially like is the one of the sewing machine - and look! it's blue!
