My first typewriter project!

Ahhh I lovee my new typewriter!
I do have to wonder how in the world a person could have enough finger strength to type long letters with it, but for my little project it was super fun!!!
So my little project started out as just these two frames buttt....

The basket kind of became part of the "walls" decor also!

I started out with some old frames that I haven't used in a long time...

Anddd apparently if you are sitting around my house and not being used then you are GOING to be up-cycled sooner or later!

So I used some of my favorite scraps of paper and added one of my favorite quotes to them with my typewriter.

I realize you can't make it out but it says:
"I love you to the moon and back"

Then I added the "hardware name plates" with additions to my quote---all together it says "I love you -way more than- to the moon and back -times 7 million"

I just hot-glued the name plates in place and slid the paper right in.

I know some of you might be thinking that this is a silly project since you can't really read the wording unless you are up close...but I think that is what I like about the project.  It adds a pop of color that I am trying to add into my first floor living area annnddd it has hidden meaning---that is so SO so my way of decorating.

And here is where the basket gets to come into the picture:
this is the view from the hall to the living room---

The wall just seemed a little too plan to me even with the two frames... sooo I scoured my house for things I could hang on the wall...

And this is what I came up with.
Ahhh much better!  
I like how the pops of red in the living room now kind of tie into the pop of red in the hall....

Did you notice I added a contact, sponsor or guest post button to the top of my blog?!?!?  
Go check it out if you are interested in any or all of the above---it would just make my day!!!

I am linking up to a few of these amazing parties---be sure to visit them, it is a great way to be inspired!

Lovely! They look great and aren't too over the top!

I did see that you had added the contact, sponsor or guest post button and have ear marked you to do one of these things once my blog has been up and running a bit longer. I am currently working on some stuff that (I think) would make fantastic giveaways.

Anyway, I'm going back to the corner to sulk about my lack of typewriter ;)
