Sears Kenmore

This lovely beauty that is at least 60 years old, was sketched by me on Friday at the Community Thrift Store.  I used to shop at Senior Thrift many years ago before they built the beautiful giant thrift store in Freeland and renamed it Community Thrift.  It's a terrific place to find bargains of all sorts.  Sometimes it depends on whether you want something bad enough because they have a habit of over pricing some items.
Take this lovely, well kept Washing machine for example, it is priced at $385.  I guess if you have a reason to keep preserving it for a few dozen more years or you are going to use it in a play or have a themed home, or maybe if you are Sears and have lost a sample of this particular model.....hmm.
We Sketchers were trading horror stories of kids and wringer washers; my brothers' broken arm, Sherryl's broken wrist; it makes me glad I never had to use one.  My brother is two years younger than me though, I wonder why he was using it?  Whatever the reason, this is actually pretty in pink and I loved the shadow from the Rocker in the window too.

  1. I do remember how wringer washer and put rubber diapers through that wringer diapers and explodes and I ruined a couple of shirts
    My job was to make sure they didn't wrap around the rollers which sometimes happened anyway causing it to pop, separating the rollers,If it does, an article of the wash may
    wrap several times around a roller before it is noticed; unwinding such a
    piece is often difficult, sometimes impossible without removing a roller .
    Its you're already happened?


I'm baack!

My brain has been on idle for the past six months.  I'm still out there creating art, but the business of posting got lost in the shuff...
