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 one too, it belonged to my mom when she was young (in the early 60's)

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.

Aria's Room | Pretty Little Liars Decor

Welcome back for LU's 2nd room in the PLL series!  Today you're getting a glimpse into my favorite room on the show... Aria's room.  Aria Montgomery is the artistic, imaginative, bookworm of the bunch.  So it's no surprise that her room has an artsy, historic, romantic eclecticism atmosphere.  Plus, it's full of books.  My two words for Aria's attic space: Vintage Eclectic.  (Those happen to be my two favorite decorating words... so brace yourself for my soon-to-come swooning.)
