We Found Some Wonderful Things

We hired someone to clean out the old sheds out back, because eventually we will be getting replacements.  And we could not believe what we found. A wonderful thing! An antique foot petal sewing machine. It is a beauty! Also we found a box filled with mason jars and an old glass washboard and a whole lot more of goodies we could use. We had no idea that we would find these types of things and that they had been stored away in those old sheds.

The sewing machine needs professional cleaning and I would love to have it restored so I could actually have it in a bedroom on display and to do some sewing on it would be so much fun. So we had someone wipe the grime off of it and bring it inside the house till then. I was really happy to find those old mason jars since I want to teach myself to can the food we are learning to grow in our garden. It would be really nice to put pretty ribbons on some of these jars and use them as everyday drinking glasses for lemonade and some delicious southern iced tea.  And the old glass washboard well we will keep it packed away and see what we could use it for other then washing clothes on it. (lol) I am just so happy about our new finds.
