I know, I know, it is Christmas and we are supposed to be shopping for everyone on our list. Well, I guess my name is on the list, cause I found something that just had to be mine...all mine.
I have been on the lookout for an old typewriter. You know, like the ones you see all over the blogs. I have seen some but they just didn't seem right. Then while browsing on Craigslist, I found it....
Yep, found me a typewriter. My husband thinks I am a bit crazy, but there it was....I made the girl an offer and she took it. I am so excited! Come to find out she wasn't very far from the store, so she even delivered it to me.
Not sure how much it weighs, but I can tell you it is ALL there! It is an LC Smith. She told me it was made in like 1920. I just love it. The keys are all still there. I am too excited to display it, so the cleaning will come a little later. Our friends were over and her husband used to work on these ole things, and he suggest I take it to the car wash and clean it up.
I think it is adorable...what do you think!!! Am I just crazy! LOL...well, of course we all know the answer to that one...Yes, yes I am....but it is so much fun to be crazy for decorating!
PS....That's my elf, Lollypop sitting by the typewriter...My sweet granddaughter named her! She informed me she didn't look like her "elf on the shelf". I told her Lollypop was very old, just like her grandma. :)
