This was perfect and nicely wrapped. It even came with a very nice note and sewing travel kit.

Keeping the Past in the Present
Since high school, in the 70's, I have been an avid collector of vintage housewares, furniture and clothing, with a special interest in Mid-Century Modernism. That period, which spans the 40's and 50's, brought forth designs that were elegant, dignified and what are now considered classic. And they last. So many of the functional pieces from this time period were well designed and built to last. 50 or 60 years later these beautiful items still work. As we age and consider retirement in the not too distant future, downsizing is number one on our to-do list. Enter Etsy. I began my Etsy adventure in September of 2010. It has been a wonderful experience and I have "met" so many interesting people.
I am also an artist, avid gardener and conservator of nature, providing habitat for all manner of species that wander onto our little paradise in the middle of the cornfields.
My other shops are CynicalGirl and CynicalGirlAnnex. These shops stock vintage patterns. I blog about sewing over at http://zipsanddarts.blogspot.com/
Owner, It's All Done By Me, Myself And I
I am an artist, born and raised in Milwaukee, living in the middle of Iowa for the past 20+ years with my writer/designer husband on a secluded acreage with our collections of objects and animals both wild and tame.
I have opened a second shop called CynicalGirl to house other bits that would get lost in AppleCharlotte. Please visit CynicalGirl for bobs and bows, ribbons, patterns, hankies and, well, the little things.
