WAIT. IT’S NATIONAL PINK DAY?

Every once in a while
I type the word
P I N K
into the Craigslist search screen…
and see what happens.

***Sometimes it’s magic.***

Meet my new best friend.

She’s not just pink.
She’s not just Royal.
She’s not just vintage original 1950s goodness.
She’s not just the cutest thing you’ve seen
all week.

She’s letters,
and words,
and lyrics,
and dreams,
and rhythm,
and love,
and endless possibilities.

All hidden
in plain sight,
just waiting to come out
and play.

She’s a perfect package of
retro
industrial
eye candy.

And now,
she’s mine.

Her name
is Rosa the Royal,
obviously.

And she’s ready to play.

Happy National Pink Day, friends!

I bought this fabulous pink gem from a typewriter collector who moved away this spring and “didn’t have room to keep it”.

All I can say is, if she didn’t have room to keep this typewriter, WHAT DO HER OTHER TYPEWRITERS LOOK LIKE???

I never met this extraordinary woman in person, or even by email. Her husband did all of the bargaining, selling, and exchanging. I even went to his office to pick it up, not their home.

I wonder if it was just too painful for her to let this baby go. Maybe she couldn’t do it in person?

Or maybe I’m overthinking it.

Anyway, whoever you are, you lovely, fabulous woman after my own heart, just know that your pink beauty will be well cared for over here.

And thank you. !!!

xxoo
