Stuff You LikeSubmitted by quiltingsando on Sat, 03/16/2013 - 20:39
It is the weekend so I didn't think it would hurt to ask this question.
The reason I came up with it, I was sewing with my old singer machine and thinking how much I like it.
I bought this machine used and is about 25 years old, the man told me if it breaks again I shouldn't bother getting it fixed he can't find the parts anymore. When he told me that, I thought well that is the day I stop sewing. The reason I like it so much is you pull a lever and it cuts the thread, wow what a time saver and saves my thread. It is so easy to thread and it automatically changes tension and stuff, it is idiot proof, hurray!
I like my husband's truck, it is useful from getting my chickens feed to hauling stuff for the yard and garden. It's a 2002 Ford, we bought it used.
I have a plastic fork I use for cooking that is made in the US and I can not find another one like it. I bought it back in the 70's and I like the shape of it and the plastic has more bend than other plastic cooking forks.
What is interesting is these things I really like have very little value monetarily but to me they are priceless. They are used everyday and I am grateful to have them in my life.
I have nothing against expensive stuff just seems the stuff I depend on is cheap, lucky me. LOL
This made me wonder if you folks have any stuff you like and could share with us what they are and why.
