Happy Birthday to Me

Today is my 15th birthday. My favorite present so far (okay, my only present so far) is my new (old) sewing machine! It’s a treadle sewing machine that my parents bought at the estate sale of our neighbor. Her name was Thelma Johnston. She asked us to call her “Tim” (her nickname from grade school.)

Anyway, looking through the drawers, I found a note: “Bequeathed to Thelma Johnston not in sale”. This led me to believe that it was very old. it would be wonderful to find out how old it really is.

Needless to say, I’m very excited!!!
