Oh Yes I Did.

First let me apologize for being away so long. My sister and her husband were visiting from the Asian continent for the last 3 and half weeks, so I've been a little busy hosting my family, friends and house guests. Now that the dust has settled somewhat, I am reminded that I only have 9 more days until my family and I move to the East Coast. My how time flies. 

In other news; It is with great sadness to say that I will not have my June project completed this June. I will just have to double up next month once we have moved into our new place. So please stay tuned. 

I do have pics from my typewriter make-over. I got a lot of grief for this one since I was altering a vintage piece of machinery however, the Royal is mine so I'm painting it pink. My plan to create the most clean, peaceful, girly room I've never had but always dreamed of. 

I had to use a small paintbrush so as not to get any paint on the chrome, keys or other mechanical parts of the machine. Although I love the original color of the typewriter I adore the new soft, subtle, pink color, it keeps with the color scheme I am trying to achieve dans ma boudoir and it makes me very happy.  :)

Here is a pic of the before(not gonna lie-I like it this way too).

What colour do you prefer?


  1. Pretty gutsy move, ma chère! J’adore les deux! Can’t wait to see the room!

  2. Absolutely stunning! Wou, these kind of Decó details drive me crazy! Congrats and welcome back! XoXo

  3. Well duh...PINK of COURSE! :)

    Happy Pink Saturday. LOVE IT!


  4. Oh goodess, decisions decisions... which do I prefer? Scruffy ugly chipped dark green - or gorgeous glamorous pale pink? No contest - the pink of course! White or cream would also have been good, and in keeping with the 50s period. I can't believe you got grief for prettifying what otherwise would have been a piece of old junk. It's lovely and would have pride of place in my home as well. You stick to your vision and ignore anyone being negative (it's only jealousy because they hadn't thought of it first).

    Happy Pink Saturday and a hug from the UK!

  5. Good luck with the move - I'm sure this is a very busy and stressful time for you.

  6. I LOVE the PINK!! Awesome choice!

  7. I absolutely LOVE it!!! I think I would have done the same thing! You definitely gave it new life. I found an old poem book in an antique trunk in my garage and inside was a red piece of paper with a typed Walt Whitman poem. It surely brought a smile to my face. Nothing quite matches the sound of you typing on those keys and the sound of it moving back to starting position.
    Anyway, have a wonderful weekend and Happy Pink Saturday!
