My Typewriter is Here!

I love it! I’m not sure my pinky fingers are strong enough to do the job anymore, but we’ll practice! It’s a good thing I ordered a new ribbon! That should make things easier.

This typewriter did not come with the exclamation mark! Do you know how to make an exclamation mark with a typewriter that does not have that key? First you type a period, then you back space and type an apostrophe! Too cool! (The shadow on my second photo is my hands, arms and camera….weird).

Be blessed!

It is cool , I forget is the typewriter key board the same as a computer key board ??

Striking the keys on an old typewriter takes far more muscles in your fingers than the computer keyboard...but what fun you will be having.

How fun! I think my mom's typewriter was like this. Ugh on the whole exclamation mark issue. LOL!

How cool is that!

I'm just home from a trip during which I found a Corsair Deluxe (without the top of the case) at a flea market. Brown/taupe not aqua.
[I had seen an aqua one at another flea market months earlier and had been a GOOD GIRL and not spent the $25.00 on it...:-( So of course it was gone when I checked later!]
So, I now have the typewriter which needs a new ribbon but it will be used for art journal pages and sending vintage notes to friends.
I never could type well but this will be fun! (I found your blog in Google Images. I also have several vintage sewing machines including an aqua Singer from Glasgow Scotland.I quilt, formerly owned a quilt shop....) Off to hunt down ribbons now....
