Etsy Finds...Vintage typewriters

Forecast today? cloudy day with a chance of rain in the morning and afternoon
perfect day to finish my crochet project.  
Did I tell you I ran out of yarn?
and it so happens that I went to three 
different stores to find it.
When I finally did find it I forgot my 40% off coupon so I had to go back the next day and get it.
Talk about pressure!

...going back to the rainy weather I love fall
goodbye to hot days hello to 
chilly mornings and cooler afternoons.

While browsing etsy I was just thinking:
if I only had my hands on one of these
oh the possibilities
while sipping on a cup of tea!


  • I would write post ideas
  • I would copy my recipes
  • I would write to do lists
  • I would write to buy lists
  • I might just write letters to myself
I hardly do that but I think I might be inspired!


I know Sophia would enjoy it too, she loves writing:
  • She would write her long princesses stories
  • She would write letters and poems to the whole family
  • She would write her love notes
  • She would practice her spelling and vocabulary words
  • She would write letters to her cousins

Talking about Xavi, he would get a kick out if it too:
  • practicing his abc's
  • practicing his numbers
Oh the possibilities!


  1. Gosh, I remember my parents had a typewriter when I was young I'd be on it every chance I had. Writing stories. And then computers came in and I'm one of those people who never looked back.
    And I'm just like you, a 40% off coupon is huge. I would go home for it too xx

  2. Interesting, very interesting that you want to use that vintage treasure instead of computer! But who knows, maybe the spirit of writing will be so strong to pressure in other way ;)

  3. Wonderful post! There is something more permanent about typewriters & their words produced!
    Thank you. :)

  4. i LOVE my typewriter... it's not as vintage looking or as old, but still-- it was a steal when we found it at goodwill and then my husband surprised me which makes it 10x better! ;)


  5. There is something about old school typwritters. They are always classic and the way things look typed on them look so cool. You should get one when you can. :)

  6. it's been too long! i have been lost these last few weeks and am finally getting back to blogging! i have missed you --- and i love that typewriter! i am in search for one myself and hoping that a certain christmas santa will surprise me with it over the holidays!

    kisses to you, love.
