my turquoise typewriter

This was a gift from my mom for Mother's Day this year. Such an amazing gift! And a lucky find for her, too -- she decided she wanted to find vintage typewriters for my sister and I, and that weekend found two perfect ones in working condition at the same sale! How amazing is that?

I keep it on a desk near our front door, beside the stairs. Here it is with a painting by my wonderful Great-Aunt Maggie, and beside a shabby old column I bought at my favourite junk store.

Lovely old keys.

It is such a pretty colour!

Type! Type! Ding!
