Sometimes you wander into an antique store and you find the niftiest things, and other times, you find yourself surrounded by surreal things that live in nightmares. I can’t stand dolls or mannequins in quiet and dark places! And this one in #Frederick Maryland was filled with creepy stuff!
Meet my new favorite thing: Royal Aristocrat Portable Typewriter,1940’s, Made in America. I’ve been searching high and low through antique stores and online for a working typewriter, and happened across this while exploring Frederick with my friend Patrick (History Things with Patrick McGuire). I’ve always fantasized about writing on a typewriter and even though I’m a techie, I also have a vintage soul. I’ll be writing up a storm on this baby once I replace the ribbon, but besides that it’s in damn good condition! And I have a fun travel related project in mind for this too :)
One of my favorite authors who used this model typewriter throughout his life was Ernest Hemingway.

SNEAK PEAK! Here is just a small slice of the creative inner workings behind my new blog design I’m working on, and I’ve gotta’ tell you, it’s shaping up to be freaking sweet! (And a tad surreal). I can’t wait to keep working on this epic redesign of the blog while keeping with the whimsical and art feel that stands it apart. What do you think?
Did you know that all around #Maryland there are old fallout shelters hiding in the shells of buildings? This one was spotted in Frederick in the now PNC bank! Kind of crazy these are hiding all over.
