Click, clak ding!

Pretty self explanatory right!!  
I finally got my vintage typewriter!  
 There is something pleasingly awesome about  banging those keys on a piece of paper.  Remember I was on my search for a vintage typewriter?

My sister loves garage and Estates sales so I asked her to keep an eye out for one.  I also mentioned it my husband. 

 A couple of weeks ago I found an electronic typewriter at a thrift store for $10 I tried it and it worked fine, we brought it home typed a few lines, then it got stuck and I got frustrated trying to figure it out :(
 The next morning I approached it again and after a few attempts it worked but after a while the keys got stuck once more.  One word...frustration!  I talked to my husband and told him about my purchase and that I found a shop in San Diego where they would take a look a it and tell me what is wrong and maybe I will have it fix.  
This is what he said:
 "Oh, didn't I tell you my dad has a vintage typewriter that he has had in storage for years?  He told me to give it to you?"  

HELLO!!  No I never got that memo!  
I never would have purchased that other one in the first place!! but anyways I am still waiting for the call from the shop and I am sure I will have it fixed because guess what? we are having too much fun with this one so far :)

If I have your address I am sure I will write a note to say hi!


  1. Great typewriter, also it has a case too! You did lovely pictures of Xavi and Sophia, typing on, they are so cute :)

  2. Oh I love your vintage typewritter! How special about it being passed down from family. Cute pictures and I love the changes you made to your blog. You've got great taste, Claudia!

  3. I love it! That brings back so many memories! In college, I graduated to the electronic typewriter and finally started using a computer after college. Now I feel old. LOL

  4. What a cool typewriter. I really like your new blog header, too, though I also really liked the last one. :)

  5. Eeeeee!!! How exciting! and you will have two! I am still on the hunt for a typewriter, but not sure I will find a cheap one in this city! I need to go to Hemet to visit you and find a typewriter :)


    Beautiful typewriter!!
