This is a hand crank "Little Modiste" sewing machine, complete with the table clamp.
It is marked:
Made in Germany
It is in great condition, the little wooden knob on the wheel looks hardly used.
|The "Unique Cabinet", Star Pin Co Birmingham Conn|
The box contains pins - hair and two colors of straight pins.
Each pin was individually inserted into the paper roll which was then rolled with the black pins in the center.
The hair pins are in four sizes, the smallest size is empty.
We also went to Taos, New Mexico.
Definitely a place to get back to for a longer trip.
There are beautiful art galleries filled with woven rugs, pottery, jewelry and paintings.
Not too many quilts. One of the galleries with Henri Matisse works also had an Amish wool doll quilt. Thinking back, I wish I had asked to see it closer...next time.
For my foodie friends -
We had great food!
Chile Relleno en Nogada
It is a dish served in the area for celebrations.
Roasted poblano pepper stuffed with beef, apple, raisins, onion, tomato and seasoning. The sauce is brandy cream sauce with pecans, garnished with pomegranate seeds and cilantro.
Since we were celebrating of course we had to order it!
