My new 70s orange typewriter!


I've been after one of these for ages and was lucky enough to find one on ebay.

I have just found your blog and am so very glad I have!! I absolutely love your prints for Clothkits.

Fab orange typewriter - I'm sure I had one of those when I was little.

take care,

Hi Jane,
As a fellow printer, I've been a fan of yours for ages and very glad to see you're blogging away. I just love your book collection! I've got quite a few of your vintage cushions and a couple of your prints from along time ago! Still love 'em. It made me smile when I saw this typewriter. I bought a similar one not long ago and thought it might be fun for my 3 year old to use......wrecked it within a week, so if you have littleones, be warned!
Best wishes
Helen

I have just discovered your blog and your designs. I love the simplicity of the Habitat cards.

My Mom had a 'vintage' typewriter when I was a young child. It was black - Now I just love the 'un'uniformity of the lettering, somehow it was so much more personal. I can get really nostalgic when I look through the recipe cards she used to type!
