A New Typewriter

I got the cutest typewriter this weekend. My guy and I went out to some little antique shops. I saw so many neat things. I fell in love with this little typewriter.

It actually works. Who knows, I might just sit down and type a letter today.

The only bad thing is it does not have spell check and that is a bad thing for me. Computers spoil us.

I moved a little desk into my bedroom and set up this little area, a fun new space.

Flowers from the garden, a few favorite magazines and a cozy chair , I just might be here a while.

New Chair Slip Cover

Today I am joining My Romantic Home for Show and Tell Friday and French Country Cottage for Feathered Nest Friday.
I am so happy to say I have completed a summer project. I finished a chair and ottoman cover. It is far from perfect. I had the help of Miss Mustard Seed's blog. The best thing is the cost, $20.00 for a painters cloth from Lowes.

This is my first attempt at making a chair cover and there are many imperfections, but I really like the way it turned out.

The best thing is your can just take it off and throw it in the washing machine.

On any given day you can find me here looking at one of my favorite books,

"Romantic Praire Style".
