Hi everyone! I haven't been around much lately. We have been house hunting, and found the One in Franklin! I am so's lovely. I will get some pictures posted soon. The inspection is this Friday, and I'm hoping it all goes well. Looks like we'll be moving again in June. Wait, didn't I just do this? Yup. Good thing I left 70% of it packed!

I also have all my postcards from Liberate Your Art to post! It's has been a fun 6 weeks! Wow- that time flew by!

Last weekend, a friend an I went to an auction for Indianapolis Public Schools. It was my first auction and I didn't know what to was AWESOME!
 There were all kinds of things....and about 20 Singer sewing machines mounted on sewing tables ( not in the picture...but you know what those look like!) that sold for ( GET THIS!) $5!!! Yes, 5 bucks! That's the price of a latte!
 I figured I'd get one, and even if the machine didn't work, I could use the table! I plugged it in today and it appears to run like a champ! It seems to be missing a foot though. I may have to look this up online. I'm planning to use it for odd mixed media, encaustic, and paper projects. 

I wonder how many kids came through high school Home-Ec learning on this?

Hope you're all having a nice spring! I'll be stopping by blogs soon! Sometimes, I lurk around and just don't comment! XO

Wow, I probably would have bought them all!

Best of luck with securing 'The One', how exciting.

$5? You had to get one, it would have been rude not to :)

Katie, I was lucky enough to get a 2nd machine at a yard sale like yours. The mechanical machines are so durable, and I can service it myself. A screwdriver, sewing machine oil and that's it! I own three mechanical machines now, basic stitches, and wouldn't have any other. I can't wait to see more pics of your charming house!!!
