Conversation With my 11 Year Old Boy

Him: Mom did you break a nail?
Me: What?
Him: You have one nail that is shorter than the rest......
Me: Oh yeah, I broke it a few days ago..
Me: Why?
Him: It looks funny
James: You have having a conversation with your 11 year old son about your nails!!!!

His poor wife... I am going to have to start praying for her now.....

Sewing Machine Geekness

I love vintage sewing machines. I don't have many because, well, we don't have the space for them all.... BUT.... the kids and I were at Goodwill to look for books and I noticed that green tag items were 1/2 off. After we looked at the books, I spotted this little thing. It was marked for $27.98 and the good part.... IT HAD A GREEN TAG!!!

And the very best part.. it came with a boatload of attachments!!

Many of them can be used on my machines that I have now and some cannot even be used on this machine, so why they were in the cabinet is beyond me. The machine is a Singer Fashion Mate 257 and even came with the instruction book that had the previous owners notes in it. I need to take it in to get it tuned up but it is a cute little machine if I do say so myself.

Have an awesome day!!
