This and That

I found a new typewriter to add to my collection.

I  figured I wanted to acquire approximately three really nice ones, and then I'll stop...

unless...

of course...

one comes along that blows my mind.

Enter my new Remington.






She was picked up yesterday by moi at my fav local antique mart.
It was love at first sight.

And they always give me great discounts because I'm a frequent shopper and
the shop clerks are old school Catholics, which I relate to very much.

So now my Corona has a playmate.






On another note,






...the newest issue of Country Living is out.

The turquoise tables gracing the cover immediately made me think of these cuties...





...that I salvaged, refurbished, and sold last fall.

Turquoise is still HOT! 

Good thing, because I still have a gallon of it in Ben Moore,
and you all know how much Ben Moore costs.

Now that typewriter is a beauty. I would much rather decorate with old things any day.

Love, love, love your typewriters. I sold an old typewriter for 10.00 at my rummage sales five years ago, I regret that I sold it.

I would love an old typewriter, it would be so much fun and look so cool too!

Aww! Looks like a Mama and now a Baby typewriter! Love them as decorative accessories. So much history and don't you wish you knew what papers and letters and documents they typed?
You were so ahead of trend with your turquoise tables it seems!

I am really into the color turquoise right now, Andrea. I am decorating a room in turquoise and pink. Your tables are so pretty. You sold them? Love the old typewriter. You are getting quite a collection of them. They are so cool.
