Well, a new old girl.
My folks made their current trip over from Tassie via a road trip.
They packed up their van, boarded the ferry and took the very scenic Great Ocean Road on their way
to visit their grandkids (not me or hubby; wouldn't miss us if we weren't here)
Given their recent retirement and relocation,
they have been cleaning.
And thus turned up with my old school uniform,
some not so wanted bits and pieces
but one very wanted bit!
Her recent former life was sitting in the back entrance to my mum's house
replete with a lacy tablecloth
and some dust-accummulating, decorative floral thing sitting on top.
But now she is free.
Here she is...
Isn't she gorgeous?
Dusty maybe but gorgeous.
Not functional but gorgeous none-the-less.
Sometime I will get her seen to and see if she is useable.
In the meantime it is one solid piece of furniture
that perfectly accommodates my embroidery machine
in just the place where I wanted it to be.
Sometimes things are just meant to be, aren't they?
