My Litton typewriter corner

I spotted a photo on La La Lovely and was instantly captured and inspired.

While I don’t have that antique a typewriter or wallpaper that lovely, I did score a really good vintage typewriter a few months back and since moving, I have displayed it on my desk but that space has given way to my gorgeous notecards storage system.

So that typewriter was parked on top of my supplies cabinet…. until that photo, thanks!

I also had a small side table just kinda kicking its feet waiting to be used… and other bits and bobs…

I love my new little vignette made from gathering odds and ends around the home already!

    I love the typewriter and am inspired by your tea cup candles. I definitely have extra tea cups that will look fabulous with candles in them.
