Today I'm sharing with Suzanne @http://coloradolady.blogspot.com/ for Vintage Thingie Thursday. Pay her a visit and check out all of the wonderful items people have to share.
As a little girl I was always know as "Annie Roonie". That knickname has stuck with me for 60 years. In the 1930's on the radio my Dad used to listen to Little Annie Rooney. He loved this program and later it became a comic book. When I was born he named me Rebecca Ann, but always called me Annie Roonie.
A few years ago my sister Deb and I were traveling through Indiana and spotted an interesting looking antique store. We spotted this book and ofcourse I had to have it. Deb scooped it up and bought it for me.
I didn't copy the whole book, just the first three pages to give you an idea of what its like.
I really need to have the pages laminated and have a new binding put on, its becoming a little fragile.
The next photo is one of a sewing chair that my Grandmother Jewell gave me. She made it years ago and I use it each time I sew anything. The inside of the chair holds all the thread and the sides have pockets for other sewing items. The back and sides can also be used for a pin cushion. The chair is about 40 years old, I guess that's vintage.
I've been sewing Easter outfits for my granddaughters, so its getting a workout this week.
