Vintage Typewriters

I’ve been on the hunt for a vintage typewriter for so long. They’re hard to find, at least around where I live. I love the look of them…sometimes I think I was born in the wrong era because I’m a pioneer woman at heart, with a love of home cooking, canning, fibers, old rotary telephones, and, yes, vintage typewriters.

A friend of mine found this mid-century beauty at a local thrift shop. $3! I used matte medium to collage it. I like it, but I think I’m going to redo the collaging to make it a little more neutral. Still, it’s fun.







And then, just yesterday, I found this! I’m so excited about it. It’s cool and old and stylized and I absolutely cannot wait until it arrives. Fun photos featuring this [good] Corona are forthcoming. My task today is to make a spot for it on my office bookshelf.



Typewriters are big and bulky so I can’t collect very many of them, but I think three is a good number, so I’ll be on the lookout for one more. Do you collect things? Let me know in the comments!
