I was a lucky person last week :) C returned from her looooooong holiday in the US and she brought gifts
Remember the old iron with the missing plug? A friend came by and gave me one! He restores old motorcycles (among other things..) and likes my love for Featherweights and old irons. He found a vintage plug somewhere among his stuff and thought of me :)
Porcelain and bakelite, just what I wanted.
I've been dying to see if the iron stills works and...tadaa..it does!
Next, my other neighbour came by and asked me if I was interested in this:
I also made me think about how little waste my Mum had with a family of 5. Once a week the bin got emptied. A big car came by for the job and the noise was deafening with all those bins lifted up and down.
Now we have huge plastic ones that are emptied every other week and that sometimes wasn't enough with my own family of 5...
Last but not least my Farmer's Wife update:
C wants to sew along too. She'd better get started :)!
