On the Hunt

Can you believe it??? 2 blog posts in 2 days!

Matt came up with the brilliant idea of utilizing his typewriter collection as decoration for our wedding reception in July. We  hope to be able to put a manual typewriter on each table, and ask our guests to type us a note. That way, the typewriters really do double duty as both table decor and guest book. Love it!

Matt has a few typewriters, but not nearly enough to deck out each table, so we are on the hunt. I've reached out to friends and family and have been scouring local thrift and antique stores in search of these adorable relics of the past.  I have managed to find 9 so far and this Underwood is by far my favorite.  I got it for a steal in a crazy little antique store in Clinton, Wisconsin. Score!

So here's where you come in blog friends. Do you live in the greater Rockford and have a manual typewriter sitting around that we might borrow on July 30th?  We'd be happy to pick them up and return them to you. Please let me know. I promise we'll be nice to them!



  1. I found this one for $1 at a garage sale today!

    I want to keep it but needs cleaning. You're welcome to use it. I texted you too. =]

  2. I just love typewriters and have a collection but sadly I'm in Oregon.

    I think there is something magical about typewriters- I think its the sound each letter makes.

  3. I love them!!! :-) Such a darling blog- following you on the blog as well as Facebook.
    I hope you do the same!
