a ton of vintage sewing patterns from the 60s and 70s. i need to make some of these dresses!

and this awesome typewriter!! i love the colour.
i think the typewriter is in working condition but i haven't verified that yet, haha. it is very fun to take pictures of though!
hehe, i've been having fun playing around in photoshop recently. oh yeah, and i sand matted sohpie's face last weekend. i like it! she looks even prettier now :)

  1. I love the blue in the typewriter! Such a pretty shade!

  2. oh my what excellent finds! i LOVE the suitcase and typewriter.

  3. That is such a pretty typewriter.
    I saw one at a thrift store and I wanted it but when I returned it was gone.

    How much did you pay for it?

  4. wallflower, it was only $6.99 :)

  5. such great finds! i'm so jealous! :) i hope the typewriter works, but it's pretty just to look at as well.

  9. I don't know what you sand matted her face means, but she looks super cute and I like how you included the Blythes in the thrift pictorial.

    Last Christmas my dad's employees had a typewriter from 1924 refurbished for him - which I think is his all time favorite gift from them...anyway I can get the info for you if you want.

  11. Great finds! I think I have one of the same vintage dress patterns. I haven't tried sewing any of them yet because I think I am going to have to alter the pattern and that intimidates me a bit. When (if) you make something from the patterns, please tell us!
