This is my vintage Remington portable typewriter after passing through some filters in Photoshop. Its not only good for looking pretty! It also invites impromptu lines from us and our visitors, banging on its keys is quite fun. It sits on the Jimmy (our buffet/console thing that we found on the side of the street). I love to stop by it occasionally to see what lines our friends have added to the most recent piece of paper! Regardless of who participates, it usually reads back like poetry. Its a great aspect of our apartment that is turning into our home.

  • That’s adorable that people write little notes on it when they walk in, I love that idea!

    It would be so sweet for a wedding, to have a little table where people could type up advice or notes for the bride and groom, I’m going to have to tell my writer friend that is getting married about this!

  • Killer for the writer’s wedding. If they had enough people participate and got multiple pages, what a great grouping of personal art for their home. Man that is a good idea!
