Shadow Shot Sunday

This caught my attention while out walking Gill today...

I thought it looked neat the way the snow had melted from the sunny spots, but survived in parts of the shadows. Made a cool pattern.

For a weekly dose of shadowy wonders from around the here.

Happy Monday

This is a pretty little treasury. So many lovely things...and I really like the colors.

The umbrella..down on the bottom row, in the from one of my shops. Did you know I've opened another shop? I don't believe I've mentioned it here before. It's called Hazey Jane Vintage. It contains clothing and personal style related accessories. You can find it here.

Anyhoodles. What I was really going to call your attention to are those leaves. The first item in the second row. Aren't those pretty?!

Gosh, I just love them! What a great idea. If you like pretty floral-y things for your home, you really should have a look. You can find them here.

Happy Monday!

Christmas Spirit

A Charlie Brown Christmas is on TV tonight. First aired in 1965, it is a true vintage Christmas classic.

If your holiday spirit needs a little boost...I think Charlie Brown is just the ticket. You know I'll be watching:D

Shadow Shot Sunday

I'm working a little overtime this holiday season. Down in the bowels of my basement. Packing this and that to send here and there. This dude keeps me company...he and his shadow.

A little retro holiday inspiration in the form of an Etsy treasury.

I listed this typewriter, a Remington Quiet-Riter Eleven,

in this Etsy shop today. This booklet comes with it.

I was trying to find a date on the booklet to confirm the age of the typewriter. Alas, I found none. I did however notice this article that I found rather interesting.

(Click on photo to enlarge)

Fascinating. 159 years from first patent to first actual typewriter. Christopher Latham Sholes, "Father of the Typewriter", 1866. Got it. I may need to know that when I go on Jeopardy;)
