My Latest Crush...

...is this really sweet Oliver No. 9 Printype typewriter c. 1913. I love the the way the keys are configured in what are referred to as "bat ears". The striking action is mesmerizing.


The whole look of it is so early industrial...with so many levers and pulleys.


It's pretty rusty, crusty and dusty right now...but it still types!


I'm even enchanted its chubby little decal fellow.



Here is a similar one in action......


Ahhh...ain't love grand!

Ripped From the Pages ~ The Beauty of White

The February issue of Country Living Magazine features "The Simple Beauty of White". 


While decorating with white isn't for everyone...it can certainly create some stunning results.

I was inspired to make a treasury of things that would look equally as lovely in that room.
