The Maintenance Crew

How glamorous, maintenance!

Dust-Off, brush, tweezers, oil can

I think my clobber has a little added something – I bought the brush in a yard sale (metal and bristle, very proper), and yesterday at Alameda my eye was caught over and over again by oil cans, the sort that make that lovely little doink-de-doink sound when you press the bottom. So I bought one, and now my sewing machines will be serviced in fine style. I clean and oil them regularly, sharpen the needles, check the leads etc.. It is worth it, and having the tools for the job is always a pleasure.

  1. I had forgotten the doink-de-doink noise oil cans make until reading this post. I will now be on the look out for one, just so that I can hear that sound once again! Enjoy yours!

    Oh I have fond memories of that noise when my Dad would oil things. Your t.v easel is brillant! I have not seen that idea anywhere..are you the first to think of it? We are keeping ours tucked in a t.v cabinet for when grandbabies come along. I don’t want to worry about a toddler pulling it down like my own son did when he was a toddler. And that was the old bulky t.v’s…luckily he was not hurt, only the t.v broke! Thank you for your input today. I think I may be a bit burned out on blogging…all the changes blogger keeps making are tiresome.

    Well hello my wonderful friend, it has been far too long since I’ve visited..
    I would love you to come to the prop shop next week if only to play catch up, eat cake and sip champagne. I want you to meet my mom too!
    I will email you the 411.
