My Type of Celebrity

So my very first post ever on my blog was about this blue typewriter that I scored. I actually ended up using a picture of it in my blog and etsy banner. It seemed kind of appropriate for a blog. These days it lives in the photography prop room at work and it has actually made some appearances here and there for Stampington & Company. I like to think of it as a celebrity typewriter now!

It actually graced the cover with Kristen Robinson's artwork on this
Winter 2011 issue of Somerset Life.

Then I noticed that it also made its way into the Spring 2011 issue of Take Ten
as a handy dandy prop for an adorable handmade card.

And the one other spotlight it received recently was in the January 2010 issue
of the Postscript newsletter (sign up for it here) from Stampington & Company
featuring a letter by Stampington & Company Director of Publishing
Christen Olivarez.

So I thought I would share a few recent pictures of my typewriter. I need to bring it back home soon and retire it from being a prop. Maybe set it up in my craft room or living room. I think I'm going to redo my banner soon using these colorful pictures.

Anyway here is to an anthology of artfulness and craftiness and to pretty pictures of vintage treasures like a Robin Egg Blue Typewriter.
