I've been consumed this past two weeks with a task. That task was to assist my FIL with his move from Enid, OK to Williamsburg, VA.
I spent a week in Enid helping my FIL sort through his house that was full of a life time accumulation of belongings. My FIL is a retired General and has traveled the globe during his career. His home was stuffed full of many beautiful treasures. My task was to help him sort through all of it determining what he wanted to keep. We also divided up many things to be passed on to my husband and his sisters.
My beautiful MIL passed about 1.5 years ago and now it was time for Dad to move closer to his family here on the east coast.
Many of those beautiful treasures came to my house to be passed on to our family. My MIL had champagne taste and she collected many beautiful things. She was quite the collector too.
To my great surprise and delight, this is one of the treasures passed on to me.
I nearly passed out on the floor when I opened up this box!
A Singer Featherweight 221 in the original case with all the manuals and accessories. This machine is in immaculate condition too.
This machine has been passed down through her family and I don't have all the history on it yet, but I will treasure this for a long time.
