My first typewriter shelf! ($30 from Gumtree) I still have it, I’ve converted it to my typewriter work shelf. It’s got all my cans and bottles of what nots and rags… a couple of typers are waiting in line for a clean up too.Will blog about them when I get around to it.
This little one was super cute – he jumped on our laps the moment we sat down and started licking and chewing on our fingers. And he was human hopping. Literally hopping across the chairs just to get to our supposedly yummy fingers.
And now, all clean and green.
You probably can’t see it, but on the left side most of the crinkle paint has worn down to it’s base colour. It’s still handsome as ever and types beautifully, it’s much more then what I thought I was getting!
The new shelf! Loving that the new shelf is simple and clean cut though I have days I think it’s going to give way to the weight of all my machines, ha ha. Scored the shelf on Gumtree, $50. Hopefully the “extra spaces” in the shelf doesn’t subconsciously make me buy more typewriters.
Though, it might have already worked.
I bought another three.
Yes, it’s typed as yesterday’s date – this post was typed out on the SM3 and I got distracted doing everything else….
Italics is such a dainty typeface.
I think my latest quest for an ancient animal encyclopedia has got me sucked into this pool of the slants — the scientific names of animals are always in italics. I’m still tossing coins to see if I should get the Webster’s Pictorial. Hmmm.
Italians did design the Italics typeface. Check it out here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Italic_type
Chow for now!
