Vintage Sewing


I slipped away today to one of my favorite antique malls.  I came home with a few old sewing books, like the one pictured above.  It's from 1958!  I also picked up a few not so old recipe books.  I think they are from the early 1990s and they are full of low calorie recipes.  I know, not very exciting, but I'm committed to sticking to this diet.  I've lost nearly 20 pounds and am motivated, finally, to getting fit and staying healthy.  By the way, August is the third anniversary of being a quitter...a non-smoker, that is.  Woot woot!

Congrats on three years.....the weight thing is tough I know. I quite 16 years ago and gained 40 pounds, very tough, and not much came off. But I keep moving. Just quitting is so healthy in and of itself. You go girl. So much sewing vintage out there. I am seeing it everywhere. Scoop it up now while it's still relatively cheap. xox Corrine
