She Arrived!





 My little Featherweight Sewing Machine arrived!
I am SEW excited to finally own one. I named her Ida. On my Facebook Fan Page I asked if anyone would like to help me name her. 
Well, the names came rolling in and what adorable names!
She has lots of middle names. Ida caught my eye when Susan said "Ida, in Honor of her former home Idaho!"
These cute machines only weigh 11 lbs.
Mine was made in 1951 and at that time Singer had been making Featherweights for 100 years. Started in 1851.
I LOVE my new Thread Catcher I bought on Etsy, here.
Bright and cheerful!
I have owned a sewing machine since I was 14 years old.
I feel like a little girl again with Ida!
I plan on sewing some fun goodies for my 
SEW MARYJANE Etsy shop!

**Do you have a Featherweight and if so, what year?**

Thanks bunches for visiting and have a wonderful day!

Homemade Caramel Popcorn!

I was craving a snack so I thought I would go through my recipes here on my blog.
When I came across my Caramel Popcorn Recipe
I jumped up and ran and made this batch!
I pop my own popcorn in a BIG pot on the stove using Canola Oil.
Over the years this recipe has become a family favorite,
and it is so easy and taste really good!
I guarantee it 100%!
This is only a small bowl of what I made.
It makes a lot!
Enjoy and have a great day!

Moving Furniture Around!

CHANGES ... this buffet use to be in my craft room for a few years. 
This weekend it made it's new home in our family room!
The TV use to sit on a wicker coffee table, that was suppose to be temporary until I decided what I wanted to do.
Build some cabinets or use a piece of furniture. It took me a long time to decide!
I am pleased with the final results! Before we had thousands of wires showing underneath the coffee table.
Today, NONE! All within the cabinet.
Dusting will be a breeze now!
Little changes can make a big difference!
This is where the buffet table was in my craft room.
**This will now have have a cute sewing area I will show when complete.**
This is what the buffet looked like before I painted it.
It was free!
I love it in the family room!
Thanks for visiting and have a great day!
