Oooooh, a typewriter!

I just won this fabulous machine on ebay - a cute little orange typewriter that just happens to fit with the colour scheme of our wedding! The plan is to set this up on a table in lieu of a guest book. My parents are worried that a lot of people won't 'get' it, but I'm sure it will work out fine.
I might take it to the typewriter man in Alderley for a new ribbon, and to see if he can fix the question mark key...


  1. ooooh! jealous!
    I think if you make a sign or something that says something to the affect of "wishes for the couple" on or near it, people would have to be daft to NOT get it.

    Also, when the wedding is over, you can use it in home decor vignettes ala this: http://bit.ly/fprJh

  2. oh, and I love that you have a local "typewriter man". that's completely charming.

    Is there a milk man as well? (kidding)

  3. Actually, I didn't know there was a typewriter man until I looked him up! And I wish there was a milk man sometimes - maybe he could give us a better deal on our organic milk!

  4. WAAAHHH!!!! I was thinking about doing the same thing! I even found 1 in freecycle but someone got it :(

    I 'get' it! :D

  5. Hey Irene, you didn't tell me you have a blog now!
