1937 Royal

My dear husband gave me a gift last night. I am an antique lover. My paternal grandmother was an antiques dealer and I spent a good amount of time in antique malls, thrift stores, and estate sales. She passed that love of historical artifacts to me. I believe I am the only grandchild to have this same love.

So, when my husband gave me this gift I was overjoyed. I have wanted a typewriter for awhile. I learned to type on an electronic one so this "new" typewriter will be a new experience.

It is a classic black 1937 Royal that needs new tape, but otherwise is in perfect condition. Isn't it sweet? My husband knows me well. Next one though I want to be a bit newer and pink.

Cyber Monday

One of my "dream jobs" is to be a personal shopper. I adore shopping, however, going to a mall or store right now is not my cup of tea. I'm a big fan of online shopping. Today I had a hard time finding really good deals. I did get a few gifts (1 gift for myself!:) from the Kate Spade cyber sale. I wanted many, many more things, but was a good girl as we are trying to save money. (We don't have any credit cards!) I also knocked off another person off of my list with a coupon that I received for my birthday, not the cyber sales. My favorites as: Brooks Brothers just had 20% off and free shipping if you spent $200. Basically it was the same with Vineyard Vines. I was disappointed that J.Crew Factory didn't have a sale. I hope to get a few more items from LLBean 10% off free shipping sale tomorrow.

What did y'all get today?

Thanksgiving is over...1 Month until Christmas

I hope everyone had a very blessed Thanksgiving day. We had a great, yet short, trip to my in-laws. Now it is all Christmas...all the time! Come back to see how I'm transforming our home into a natural and simple Christmas wonderland and getting back to the basics: the Lord, homemaking, new recipes, and writing.

Blessings to you and yours,
