Fooling With My Sewing Machine!

No, not the kind that you sew on and make beautiful pillows and drapes and bed skirts. I’m talking about the old one that was given to me years ago that I have in the room off the kitchen, I never know what to call that room by the way.
I was just sitting here with my lap top blog hopping and my eyes rested on that sewing machine and I thought at that moment that it needed something else on it besides the lamp and African violet that I haven’t killed yet, four years and it’s still alive a major thing for me with plants! So I remembered that I had two of these milk glass compotes, one I bought at GW and the other one given to me at a yardsale each worth $12.00 I looked it up on Google:) Anyway I filled it with shells and added it to the sewing machine!
I then added a picture of Sam when she was two on a black picture holder…P6160976
I found this floral arrangement at a moving sale last weekend for a $1.00! I thought it was so pretty for the warmer weather.
It’s hard to take pictures at 8:15 at night and it’s also hard to decorate the top of that sewing machine, always did have a hard time with it!
Here’s another pic of it, I think I like it and hope you do too!
Thank you to my followers and the newest ones too… love you all! Hope your having a great evening with family and frriends!

Oh I'm in love!!! Well, everything in the room is gorgous.

I once had an old sewing machine too & I also struggled to decorate the top of it, so I know how difficult it can be. That being said, I think you definitely pulled it off Rondell. It looks great! You found the perfect blend of items.

Hey Rondell, you suckered me! I was expecting to see some gorgeous sewing projects you completed. LOL! Just kidding. I really like your pretty room of the kitchen and think you should call it the breakfast room! Have a great weekend!

Wow! Rondell...I love the creamy whites in your room! Everything looks soooo nice. You've done a super job of changing things to get that "white" look we so love.
