Found Treasures

I love finding things I love for free.

I found this along side the road during Spring cleanup.  I know it's Fall now so this isn't new...but...it's a new blog. ;)  I still need to work on putting the cover back on (you can see it sitting to the left of it on the floor) and I would like to find a belt for it. The broken one was in one of the drawers. The pedal moves like cutting butter.  It's not in perfect condition, but then I'm not one that needs perfection...if I love it...it's 'perfect' for me.  My grandmother had one of these and I always loved it and wished I had one. I was overjoyed to see this sitting waiting for me along side the road. Especially that it was free....as free is good!  Now I need to just quit moving it around the house and work on getting it fixed up. ;)


  1. I thought I'd stop and say hello and thank you for visiting me! I love your blog page...very unique. Your sewing machine is quite a find, isn't it fun when that happens! It looks to me as if you could use a new follower...I'm clicking the button!


  2. Thanks for stopping by Sue. :) I'm new to blogging...thus the low followers. At least I hope that's the case.. ;) Thank you for clicking that button. ;) I love finding things like this for free. ;)

  3. I can't believe someone tossed that. Why don't they at least give to a charity or sell it. Lucky you though.

  4. I couldn't find your email address. Just wanted you to know that you’ve been featured at my weekly Welcome Wagon Friday , which is already posted. Each week I scour the blogosphere to find new bloggers I think my readers might like. So welcome to Blogland!

  5. Welcome!! Happy to find your blog through Brenda at cozy little house.I'm really enjoying looking at all your great estate sale finds. I too love estate sales....Kathy

  6. Wow! I would snap that up just to display even if it never worked. Wonderful! And free! Doesn't get better than that. :) I'm hopping over from Cozy Little House to say Welcome to Blogland and wish all the best. Tammy

  7. I just popped in from Brenda's Cozy Little House Welcome Wagon. Lovely blog. Wow I can't believe this was sitting on the roadside. I learned to sew on one of those.

  8. I have one of these beauties and I just love it! Yours is gorgeous and can you believe someone disgarded it. Lucky you get to love it now :)


  9. Kim @ Savvy Southern Style... I know...I couldn't believe it was sitting there...We drove by and I didn't see it at first..Bill goes...back up Kim.....there it sat...ready for the garbage truck. I sure was feeling lucky that day. :)

    Thank you so much Brenda! I just saw that you had featured me. I was without power for a while to day so I'm just gettin back online. :) Thank ou again! :)

    Thank you Kathy! I love estate sales and wish I could get to more of them. ;)

    T's Daily Treasures...I'm pretty sure that it will work once I get a belt..the wheels and foot pedal move easily. yeah...free is nice! ;) Thank you for the welcome. :)

    Becca's Dirt..Thank you for visiting! I couldn't believe it either. ;) I always loved looking at my grandmothers. I'm not sure what happened to hers. But was tickled to find this one.

    Gail @ Faithfulness Farm...I just love mine too. Thank you so much for stopping by. :)

  10. @ Brenda ...and your right...I forgot to add my email address. It's now in the upper left hand corner. ;)

  11. Hi, Kim!! Welcome to Blogland. What a fabulous find! The previous owner should be happy it got a happy new home! ;-D


  12. I'm so glad you like the cake! I would have replied to the email, but you have it set to get no replies (you can change that and then people can respond directly to just you if you leave them a comment).

    Did you see the update on my today's post about fixing the blogger reader issue at least while they fix the glitch?

  13. Yes I just saw it Sue. I'm off to fix it in a sec. We loved loved loved the cake. :)

    Sheesh I am such a newbie when it comes to this blogging. *scratching head...set to get no replies* I'll figure out where all this stuff is sooner or later...hopefully sooner than later! lol

  14. Hi Kim! It's so nice to meet you and to welcome you. I love your sewing machine, in fact I have one just like it. Stop by and see me when you have a chance.

    Susan and Bentley

  15. Hi Blondie! I missed saying a thank you for stopping by.:) Nice to meet you! :)

    Hi Susan and Bentley! :) Thank you for the welcome :) I love my freebie sewing machine. ;) I'll be stopping by later! Taking a quick break here from raking leaves. I wish they'd just all come down at once! ;)

  16. I have read your blog and we are of the same spirit. I use only cast iron fry pans(I have no pots) I love old things and free is great. I am going to make your bread this weekend. I have not caned but really want to try. I spent much time with my grandmother watching her can on a wood stove. My mother passed a year and half ago and she prefered newer but couldn't pass up a bargin on a great old thing. She gave me my love of thrifting,auctions,and a good yard sale.
    Can't wait to see more of your journey.

  17. Hi there, your blog is beautiful! I'm pretty new to all this too but it's fun and you meet the most wonderful people that truly feel like dear, long time friends. I love to bake bread too ~ wish we lived closer together. :-) I guess I'm your newest follower so will look forward to 'seeing' you here again. Stop by and say hi when you can.

    Have a blessed weekend ~

  18. Just happened upon your blog and LOVE IT! I think we could be long lost sisters :)......I to love anything old and I also just learned the art of canning this summer!

  19. I do believe we are Cathy (acorn hollow). I've been over reading on your blog...I'm now up to what...April? ;) I hope you enjoy the bread it was so good! My Mom was the same. Said she preferred the newer but we'd go out together shopping and she'd always end up with some 'old' ;)

    Thank you Pat (Gypsy Heart) <-- I love that name! How I'd love to have someone to bake with. Yep..too bad we aren't closer! I'll be stopping by for a visit!

    Niece... Thank you so much for stopping by and commenting. I will be heading over to your place very soon. I can't wait to read all bout my long lost sis. ;)

    Thank you all for stopping by my new place. I love reading all your comments. :)

  20. Oh my gosh!! I can't believe someone put this out at the curb as trash!! It's gorgeous! So glad it found an appreciative owner!!

  21. Hi Kim,
    Thanks for visiting my post...I'm new to blogging too. Love your blog. I have my grandmoter's Singer just like yours. What a great free find.
