{paper and ink}

{paper and ink} love:

What is it about vintage
that is so intriguing?

I took some time the other day
to treasure hunt
with my 9 and 11 year old daughters...

 We found a few batons for Clara to twirl
{she's happy!} 
and a few other useful things.
 Then we came across 
a few old typewriters
and were absolutely 
in awe.

Maybe it's the 
'klink, klink, klink'
of the keys
or that your eyes can actually see 
the ink
transferring onto the paper.

I am 'one of those'
that prefer lists on paper 
over notes on my i-pad,
reading a book written on pages 
rather than a nook
and the smell of fresh ink 
as I inscribe
a handwritten note to a friend
 rather than an e card, 
whatever that is :].
Oh, I know those things can be convenient
and save a forest, too.
But there's just something about
paper and ink...
I love.

Typewriters are being listed today
in my

Have a beautiful weekend!
