It’s been another long hiatus … heart and mind willing to blog but fingers not.
This time last year I found a techno yellow tippa. This year, a lost vogue blue royal p found me, a perfect wrap for 2013!
Eye therapy… after the retail therapy. Haha.
2013 ‘me’ time – chiffon cakes, owls, hello kitty, typewriter and more typewriters!
Here’s wishing all a very, very, very…happy and blessed 2014 and more? Gorgeous typewriters of course.
Peace and love,

oops ! just realised last sentence missing ‘m’ – … wish list is growing faster than the rate i am striking it!
here she is – big and beautiful.
love the case, can double up as a luggage bag for a one night trip! 🙂
here is the comparison with a compact tippa, safari – size L and tippa – size S.
she is quite bulky, more than double the height of tippa. certainly not for lugging around. 😦
it’s wednesday!! have a happy mid-week! 🙂

meet my old-typers, a few already in their 80s or older but still so gorgeous!
introducing group 1 : 3 old-typers in 3 shades of red.
group 2 : meet 3- fold and 3- bank
meet the star of today’s photoshoot – my very special remington 3b, she may not have the complete usual keys and the mambo jambo of other usual funtionalities but she is a limited edition! only 5706 was built during the depression era of 1939, for a brief period of 6 months. love!!
read more here – richard’s (the typewriter guru) account of this beauty.
‘3’ gets repeated many times here – a coincidence? 🙂
stay tuned for more of their stories and typecasts …
thank you for visiting.

*my heart wept, i braved myself … a bit drama-mama here. lol. in short, very UPSET!
some major injuries –
- metal spool and ribbon out-of-place, not a good sign. it danced happily and scarred its body
- a very deep cut in on the right
- ribbon reverse button knocked into body
- key ‘6’ badly bent
- small scratches elsewhere, everywhere
her serial nos is P131243 which dates this machine to 1939-1940.
her key slugs are very sharp, cutting /punching the paper at times. why is that so? platen too hard? do you know?
