Vintage Atomic Age Buttonholer and 3 Ways to Look Great

I love to sew AND get inspired by surrounding myself with beautiful things. The buttonholer case does that…and good to have for those vintage sewing machines around the house. As for the patterns…What’s not to love about 40’s style, long evening dresses, or slinky skirts with a slit to there? All I need is a Glen Miller playing “In the Mood.” So kick your shoes off and enjoy!

Vintage Singer Buttonholer with atomic age case in dusty rose. Complete set with buttonhole templates and instructions. Excellent condition. So the case looks great….great enough to use for trinkets if you don’t have the machine anymore. Can’t believe I said that.

My Mission Trip to Haiti: Making the Dream Come True

I didn’t realize what a big undertaking going on a mission trip would be. Our group is made up of nurses from Maine Medical Hospital and two nurses from Florida. I’m one of the two from Florida. The distance adds a challenge to getting things ready and fundraising. Instead of 12 helping hands there are 10 and 2. Thank God for friends and family. Things like attending the fundraiser in Portland, Maine is out. It sounds like it will be a good time, too. It will be on November 15 at 12:00 PM at the Flask Lounge…..and I won’t be there, which means I need to do other things to keep up my end. It does mean if you are up that way…GO!
