My latest typewriter; the Royalite in pastel combos. If I was in a situation where I had to make the really tough decision about which of these colour combinations to pick, I think I’d go for the blue and yellow. Yep. Decision made. There is something Wes Anderson-y about the blue and yellow.. It makes me think of The Life Aquatic, one of my favourite films. What about you?!

Hello everybody, how are you today? Good I hope. I’ve been busy working on a new design for my latest typewriter! I decided to go a bit 2 tone pattern vibe for this one. I just can’t seem to get away from pastels, every time I try, the colours somehow become pastel again…
Anyway – this is Avril. That’s her name. She is an apricot and pastel green Royalite with white detailing. The Royalite is…

You are My Fave

So a few weeks ago I was saying how the baby blue Olympia was my favourite commission of all time, well now I’ve forgotten all about that and I have a new love: this Lilac Olivetti.

Making Bread for Breakfast Enthusiasts

We’ve been making our own bread recently, in a bid to save money, and this is our 3rd loaf. It’s pretty much the densest thing known to man, and you only need half a slice to fill you up… Is that bad? Anyway, it’s good with lemon curd! We’ll keep trying, maybe we’ll experiment with adding things like olives (oooh)!

It feels like I’ve been working on this powder pink Hermes Baby typewriter for ever! But it is finally finished, and will be shipped off to Belguim this week!

I think I look a bit smug, but I’ve just got the sun in my eyes… believe!
