Typewriter Craze

Timeless. Nostalgic. Romantic. Eclectic. Classic. Fun. Studious. Antique. Whimsical. Colorful. Whatever the make, model, or color... A typewriter can add that little extra something to a room. Here's a photo collection of typewriters incorporated into home decor.

I collect vintage typewriters, btw. (Three now to date.) I'd love to find a way to incorporate one of them into my apartment decor this fall, but space will be limited so I may have to leave them behind.

I have mine (a beautiful green one, with case)dispayed on top of my kitchen cabinets with some other eclectic finds.
Loving these. We are doing my daughter's nursery with a literary/typewriter theme and these are helping me get inspired.


DIY Cat Barrier for Under $100 (See-Through, Climb-Proof, and Too-Tall-To-Jump)

ICYMI: I gave up Cotton after deciding that after trying so many things, my two adopted cats Dahlia and Cotton were just never going to get along. Long story short: I missed her. And Cotton's back. And Dahlia's not going anywhere. My heart is big enough to keep trying. And my apartment is big enough that if I need to keep them separated long term (or permanently), it can be done. I'm going to write-up a separate post about some of the solutions I've tried, how they worked, who they worked on, and what I'll be trying next. But in this post, I wanted to share the main 'piece de resistance' of having both cats in my apartment: an un-climbable, un-jumpable, see-through barrier to separate Cotton and Dahlia .

Aniela, a lovely reader from Germany, sent me an email requesting advice on recreating the style of Penny's apartment on Big Bang Theory. 

Blair's Room | Gossip Girl Decor

Manhattan's debutante Blair Waldorf happens to be my favorite Gossip Girl character.  Her behavior and feelings vary from snobbish to sensitive, but she always (except for a few rare occasions) looks and acts totally pulled together.  Her luxurious bedroom is fit for a queen---and is as pulled together as her preppy fashion ensembles.
