New(ish) Toys.

:: I've been looking for the perfect old typewriter for some time, and finally found it in this beautiful little turquoise and red one from the 1950's. It's so sweet and in great condition...I just need to get a new ribbon for it and it'll be ready to go!

:: The globe is actually something from my childhood that I thought I had lost. I took it with me when I moved out of my parents house and went to college. Then it made the trek to California with me. I do believe I "lost" it sometime around 2001, when we got married. I was very excited to find it recently on the top shelf in my in-laws living room! It's now back home with me where it belongs.

I have one very important question....WHAT is the color of your wall...I'm in love with the pale BLUE and I have about 1,000 swatches on my walls right now trying to select a color! THanks soooo much!

Yes...the typewriter is extremely swoonworthy!

Shimmy and Vanessa...Welcome! I'm so glad you stopped by!

Vanessa...I feel your pain! When we were getting ready to paint I needed to find that PERFECT light blue/light green! We finally decided on Behr's "Ice Cube". We love it. So calming! Good luck on your search! I hope that helps.
