the best way to write...

I think that I have decided that this little pink typewriter is quite necessary to my happiness in life!  I have been looking for a vintage typewriter for several years but the ones that work, I can’t afford and the ones that I can afford, well they don’t work anymore.  I want one for the look, yes, but I really want to use it.  There is something very beautiful about writing and not being able to backspace or delete things.  Plus the traditional font is amazing!  I would love to use it for a plethora of things like crafts and photo captions and idea drafting…hmmm…so what it boils down to is that I simply must find this!  Plus, how amazing would this look on my little desk?  Ok, I’m on it…

a sweet message...

For the last few months I have been using my laptop and doing any computer work on my studio table in my workroom. This was all fine and well except I had to stand up to do so… Not exactly ideal for getting any actual work done. So, I found an antique desk for cheap and pulled out some of my favorite stationary, pens and notepads and created a happy little space to work! Complete with my very favorite message of all time in pink framed above I have a perfect little hideaway. Next I needed a message board to pin ideas and notes to… so I found a frame that I had purchased at Target a while back that I hadn’t been using and took out the glass, cut down a piece of thin cork board (I bought them in a pack of four 12″ squares at Target) and poof! a cute little cork board to match my antique beach desk! I added a few favorite things, an inspiring quote or two and now I feel at home…
