While not anywhere near as valuable as the spinning wheel we bought the other week, today's finds at the flea market were still quite fun (and cheap!). Vintage-y Needlework. I've always loved the vintage knitting and crochet and spinning items when I come across them.

Political Correctness or Civility
It's so easy for people to say they're being strangled by political correctness, and even I have questioned the latest "rules" so as to try and not offend others. Slurs or Common Terms I have to admit, I remember when Chinese, Japanese, Koreans, Vietnamese,...

Farewell Joyous Wheel
The flea market find of the century for me, the Clemes & Clemes spinning wheel, will find it's new home today in Albany. But Not Before I Had My Way With Her I couldn't let this beauty of a wheel go without a full cycle of spinning and plying. So, I finishe...
