Meet Joy, as in Pride and Joy! This is the Pride and Joy of my Sewing items. I love my regular sewing machine, but this is something I've been looking for for quite a while. I found it thrifting last week- it seems to be in really good working condition. The etchings and filigree is all in excellent condition!! I could hardly believe it! It's in a cute table that is gonna be stripped and painted light aqua very soon :). I want to get it working in the future, but right now I just need to get it cleaned up and in my front room! Not too bad for $18! Someone donated something that they had no idea what it was. It's so fun to have something of the past!
A closeup of the etchings :)
Just so pretty- I can hardly wait to get it all cleaned up and beautimous!!


  1. Fun! I have my grandma's but it doesn't have that fancy silver 'plate' ... but it has served me well over the years!!

  2. That's a very lovely machine. It's too bad they don't put the same kind of decoration effort into the machines they make today.
