The Monday Repurposeful Word of the Day is:
 
 
T Y P E W R I T E R
 
 
Did someone ask, "What can you do with an old typewriter?"
 
Plenty! 




































A charming Christmas vignette was created with holiday sheet
music instead of paper loaded into an antique typewriter:







 
 














Guests at a vintage-inspired wedding were encouraged to
type well wishes to the couple using an old Remington.










 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 







Keep this in mind for next Halloween:



And don't forget the possibilities of typewriter parts:
 
Typewriter key jewelry is so much fun.





So clever - Tick Tock spelled out on a watch bracelet:

These keys can be used as bracelet charms,
necklace pendants or earrings:
Typewriter keys from a 1940 Corona
 
 
 
Some snazzy cuff links made from vintage typewriter keys:


 
Typewriter ribbon tins have become very collectible:


 
 
 
 
 
 
Don't forget the versatility of vintage typewriter tables:





An antique typewriter table was used as the base of a bathroom sink.






They're about as rare as hens' teeth but if you run across an old
typewriter table at a thrift shop, yard sale or flea market - grab it!
