Just My Type


My vintage typewriter sits on a shelf in the kitchen for all the world to see (...because where else in the house would you keep a typewriter?!) but rarely moves except on the odd occasion when I decide to clean it... a job that I will gladly give to Leo as punishment one of these days when he's old enough!  I see it so often as I walk in and out of the kitchen, that I have almost forgotten how much I adore it.  

So I have decided that today is 'Appreciate Your Forgotten Favourite Possessions Day' and I encourage you all to unearth your treasured keepsakes, hold them, stroke them and recapture the joy you felt when you first bought them home.

P.S.  My apologies for the bombardment of my own photos lately but I have excruciatingly slow internet this week and can't browse the web for yummy content :(

Well my typewriter is not new Ang, well not new to me anyway. I bought it on ebay last week and have been looking at it adoringly ever since. I'd wanted one for awhile for a prop and to type a few things, plus we're going to use it as a guest book for 'words of wisdom' for our upcoming wedding. I should do a post about it, I think you've inspired me!

Hi Angela, I bet that must be extremely difficult to clean!! I remember getting a typewriter as a little girl and not appreciating it at all, to think that now it would surely be a treasure for someone!
