Another New Old Addition

My parents, who downsized about a year and a half ago, are realizing that they didn't purge enough.  Their little condo (which I'm pretty sure is still bigger than my house) is jam packed full.  So, yesterday I became the proud new owner of this little 100 year old baby.

It was my great grandmother's sewing machine table, back before sewing machines were electric.

The truth is, I'm a little afraid to have it at my place.  It's delicate and breakable.  I'm not so delicate and have been known to do my fair share of damage.    I'm a little torn about keeping it.   I like having the family history, but I'm not so sure about responsibility.  


  1. my husband would love to see it - he has an old sewing machine that he found, refurbished and uses - hope you are doing well :)

  2. It's beautiful Janice. Isn't there some writing on the bottom side of the stand?
