Ye olde typewriter case

{UPDATE: I was a winner at Frilly and Funkie!}

I love old typewriters! I have an old vintage Oliver (batwing) and an old Royal with glass sides that weighs a ton! So when I got this rusty green case, I knew I wanted to do something funky!


I had this set of typewriter keys or 'heart strings' as some people call them which I put on top, together with some laser cut wooden typewriter keys. I used distressed papers and numerous embellishments inside and out. And I love those clasps that lock it all up. I'll just let the pics type out a story...









It's such a unique piece and a conversation starter for sure! And since it's funky, I'm entering it at Frilly and Funkie for their Just My Type challenge and Lawnpink!
