Beautiful quotes Claire, I love the typewriter. I have one, maybe 30 years old, but it's broken and I can't find the piece to replace. Have a lovely day!
Thanks, Elizabeth :) I'm lucky that my Dad safely stored my typewriter for me - couldn't believe the ribbon still worked after 25 years of storage!
Claire, I love those two quotes and am copying them down to remember. They are so perfect! Your typewriter is pretty cool too, I just bought an old portable on eBay! xx
There are some beauties on ebay, aren't there?? Mine's nothing to write home about(!), but it IS mine, and it IS faithful, and I love its quirks... Though I'm frustrated it doesn't have an exclamation mark key! Shows it's vintage, I guess - as my teacher used to say,'If the words are forceful enough, you don't need exclamation marks' - I'm not convinced!!
My husband and I both have old typewriters in the basement -- haven't used them in ages, though!
Maybe you can dust them off and have a play :) I was amazed that the ribbon still worked after being stored for over 25 years, so you just never know...
Your comments mean a lot. They show I'm not alone. Thank you!
