After lots of work for my sewing room, I finally bought the fabric for the curtains. I need a very thick one because of the sun. It's a very sunny, bright, little, cute sewing room!
I cannot say enough about my wonderful sewing machine. It's really able to sew very thick fabrics as well layers of jeans.
It's a Janome DC 3050. It's really the best one!

I LOVE them, all of them! Some belonged to my grandparents, some to my husband's grandparents.
I like to display them in my kitchen and breakfast area.
The coffee grinders are my favorites. Some of them are really old.
Some are re-painted from my family, some are natural, some are more recent find.
The bedside lamp was my mom's when she was a little girl. It's very sweet to me.
And last but not least: my wonderful kitchen scale!!
I fortunately found it in a gigantic Chicago antique store during our trip last year.
I was looking for one of this for very long, and I found it far away from home.
She was in need of a strong cleaning, but I like her old, rusty patina.
