Simply couldn’t help myself

A year or so ago I bought myself a little pressie. It was something I’d seen on ebay and just couldn’t resist…July 2011 010They’re original old Singer treadle drawers that have been made into the cutest little cabinet, complete with the gawjus decals on the side.July 2011 012Well if you’re a fellow stitcher/crafter … then I’m sure you’ll understand when I say that already these drawers are full to overflowing. So ……… what’s a stitcher to do, but buy more :o). Look what I found on ebay …July 2011 005It’s just perfect next to my ironing mat – I even have the most beautiful little topper to protect it!! It was originally made as a wallhanging for me by Dawn, but I’m sure my dear friend won’t mind if I use it on my new drawer, it’s such a perfick fit :o)!!!!July 2011 006 What a useful little item, I can keep my little Clover iron in the drawer, and my pretty pink everyday iron stands proudly on top :o).July 2011 007But that’s not all I bought!!! Lucky for me the seller of this little item was local, so I could pick it up. But when I got there he showed me some others that he had. Now I think you probably already know what I did don’t you???!!!!!! Yep, I bought another LOL …July 2011 009This time a set of 3 drawers.

I simply couldn’t resist lol.

Hope you all have a fabulous weekend ……

Hey Joy-Belle! I'm not surprised that you didn't resist ... I don't think I could have either! What wonderful recycled treasures you found! :0) My poor old singer is beyond restoration, I think, but I sure do find the drawers a handy storage space! :0) Have a fabulous weekend - Bear Hugs! KRIS

What luck to find another set the same! Wood always looks so nice and you probably have lots of trinkets to fill them with.

Hello Joy,

My Aunty gave me some of these when she saw I had a old treadle sewing machine base which I made into a table. I will have to get mine down from the top of the cupboard and actually use them for fabric.They look right at home in your sewing room.
Happy days.

What super finds - you're a tinny one being able to come across such fab pieces and look at the richness of colour that glows from the 'real' wood.
