You guys. We got this non-functional typewriter from Autumn and Luke (congratulations on your engagement!), and Jake is fixing it. I can’t wait to start typing on it.

It is seventy-three years old, a heavy duty “desktop” model. And look at those beautiful keys!

I’m so thankful for my wonderful mister. He truly is wonderful.

Eee!

New project! Polaroid Big Shot

Oh my goodness.

I mentioned to Jake recently that I wanted to find a Polaroid camera, and he came home from Bookman’s today with (ta-da!) this guy.  I did some internet research, and learned cool things about how Andy Warhol fondly used it (there is a current exhibition of his Big Shot Polaroids at Duke University which you can see here) and that it is beloved by Polaroid enthusiasts for its “eccentricity.”  I found film and MagiCubes for it on Ebay, so i’m crossing my fingers that it’ll all come together and I can make a project of it.

Wheeee!  THANKS, JAKE.
