Typewriter cozy

Since it’s difficult to find typewriter covers for sale online, I decided to make my own.  It doesn’t enclose the typewriter completely–the bottom is still open, so I can just slip this on top of the typewriter.  I’m thinking that as long as no little bugs (highly unlikely) slip underneath or anything, this should protect my typewriter from things getting inside when it’s unused.  Better than having to store it in its case and taking it out every time I want to type on it.  Am going to measure and make cozies for all the typewriters I keep outside!  The one below is for my Olympia SM-9.

Kind of wrinkly and needs pressing, but still so pretty!


Beautiful Kolibri

I was going to reply to the guesses on my previous post more promptly, and then post about the typewriter, but this past weekend proved to be a very trying one.  Why must one’s parents drive one to insanity?  I spent most of Saturday evening a tiny tear-stained little mess underneath the bedcovers.  Oh well.

At least my typewriter came in!!


It is a Kolibri

tiny green machines!

got a new typewriter in today

First typewriter purchase of 2012 — Red Sears Courier

I’ve been salivating over the thought of a nice red (not-Valentine) typewriter for a while, and before Christmas had my eyes on a Sears Courier on Etsy, but it was out of my price range.  Imagine my delight when one popped up again on Etsy within my price range.  Though the purchase was still pretty pricey–my biggest purchase ever at $140 plus shipping–I do believe it is well worth it!  I have a red Sears Courier typewriter being shipped my way soon~

I am beyond pleased with my first typewriter purchase of 2012.  This Sears Courier is mechanically identical to the Lettera 22–just the color and keys are different.   I can cross it off my typewriter wishlist now!  Can’t wait till it comes in.
