Melody Monday

This weeks Melody Monday is inspired by one of my favorite movies. The songs come from the Marie Antoinette soundtrack. This is a must see movie if you love fashion, romance, and fabulous parties!

On Saturday I went to a few garage sales to find more items for my Etsy shop. As I was walking up to the driveway of a house, I spotted this beautiful, very old typewriter. Now, I have always wanted an antique typewriter, so as I walked closer, my heart started beating faster. It was dirty and some of the keys sticked, but I was in love. The original price was $20, but after some bargaining, I took it home for only $15!!! That made my day :)

After doing some research, I found this typewriter is circa 1940's.


  1. Cute blog here! Quite a find with the typewriter! I don't know if I could go back to a typewriter -- my parents held off for as long as possible on buying a computer so I spent far too many hours typing assignments up... A long process! I now love my word processor :-)

  2. Marie Antoinette is one of my favorite movies! And I agree, it has a great soundtrack. That typewriter is amazing as well, good bargaining skills ;)

  3. I've never seen the movie, but I've kinda wanted to see it for a while.

    Also, awesome find with the typewriter! I love old typewriters, they are so neat. I used to have a big bulky one when I was young, but my parents trashed it. :(

  4. Marie Antoinette is one of my favs ... the costuming is out of this world!!!! :)

    That type-writer is a killer find! Such personality!
