Vintage bits

Esty is a fave of mine - lots of interesting finds to be had. My latest is a set of old typrwriter keys and some tiny Swedish tart tins.
I'm not sure what I'll do with the keys yet. They'd make interesting cuff-links or I might use them in some wearable art. Or, maybe I'll just look at them for a while until inspiration strikes!

PS. the old tablecloth is also a recent Etsy bargain :)

  7. There is something about old typewriters that intrigues us all ... maybe because they are now out of use and we rely so heavily on computer keyboards .... I love those keys you scored!

    Thanks for your sweet comment ... and yes quite a bit of sensory overload ... but fun to imagine living in such a grand chateau!
    Have a great week.

  11. Sarah, didn't read through the comments, so somebody might have mentioned it already, but, I've seen them made into rings, necklaces and bracelets. Cufflinks is a brilliant idea.
    Really cool find.
