This post will totally bum you out. In fact, if you want to be happy and cheery today – I suggest you look away. Am I being completely melodramatic? Yes. Are there bigger issues in life? Obviously.
But I stumbled across these photos, and thought they were absolutely lovely in just how sad they actually are.
Abandoned sewing machines.
Don’t you feel just a little bit sadder after having looked at them? How could somebody do something like this?
I actually have gotten rid of a sewing machine myself, donating it to the Salvation Army. And it was such a hard decision to make! It wasn’t working all that well, and it probably just needed a good tuning at the repair shop. But I had a new machine already, and decided that I would give it to somebody else to fix.
But just leaving it on the side of the road? It’s almost like seeing kittens in a box that says ‘free’. It makes you happy that you have the opportunity to get a free kitten, but sad that somebody would just give them away like that.
Anyway, sorry for the detour to sad-ville folks. I just saw these photos and had to share. They touched a chord in me. Am I alone?
How do they make you feel?
