Currently Coveting -Vintage Typewriter

14 Jun

Lately I have been seeing vintage typewriters everywhere. Maybe that’s because I spend my weekends at Flea Markets, who knows. What I do know is that I have always loved a beautiful typewriter, especially in a lovely candy coated shade of pink, blue, green or yellow. Funny enough, I can still remember actually using a typewriter to type up papers for school. I’m not quite sure if I did this because I had to or because I just liked using the typewriter but ever since the one that we had broke, I have always wanted another. I can just imagine a stormy spring evening sitting at my window, typing chapter’s from my autobiography while listening to the sounds of the rain and Ella Fitzgerald playing on the record player (which I also need to get) and sipping a chilled glass of Riesling. Aw, what a life…

One day I will find a typewriter that fits my style perfectly until then I guess I’m just stuck with this less attractive HP laptop, which although not nearly as cool, it does serve its purpose. You can’t exactly blog with a typewriter.

Currently Coveting: Birdcage Armorie’s

11 Jan

Maybe its a part of the fairytale fantasy that I like to create in my head but none the less I would absolutely love to own one of these beautiful birdcage armories one day for my bedroom. Oh, how it reminds me of Cinderella and the scene where with the help of all her furry friends they create a beautiful dress and hang it on the outside of her beautifully crafted armoire. Now hold it right there… I am by no means asking for the furry friends. In my fairytale (and in life) I create the dress on my own!

Now if only I could find one that is both aesthetically pleasing to me and in my price range… then I could making this fantasy a reality.

Until then… below are a few I am currently coveting:

Spotted on
J. M. Georgagi, hardwood in Fresh Lime finish. “Cheri” $1,799

Spotted on Bella Maison International:
French Reproduction Antique Louis XV Single Door Armoire

Spotted on
“Provence” Armorie Wardrobe $1,895

One day I will have my beautiful birdcage armorie and then I can “decorate” it with all of my accessories (hats, gloves, handbags, scarfs, belts, necklaces, rings, braclets etc.) I imagine it to turn out somewhat like the inside of Makingitlovely’s closet pictured below.
