Typewriter Tuesday

What kind of Tuesday are you having? For me, it is a Tuesday of job applications. It is a Tuesday of tidying a room for an expected guest. It is a Tuesday of tackling my tax return. So, what is a person to do when there is so much Tuesday tedium?

Look at Etsy for a Tuesday typewriter, that's what. Here are some of my favourites.
Typewriter linocut by Perla Anne. I actually have this one. It just arrived a few days ago, and I love it.
'Unblocked', by Citrus Tree.

Typewriter on bamboo paper, by f2 images.

'The Muse Returns' by Courage My Love.
'Typewriter in grass', by She Hit Pause Studios.

Doesn't that alleviate the tedium, just a little?

I've just realised that I can save my favourites in Etsy, and then make the profile public. Every year I give my family strict instructions to only buy me presents off my Amazon wish list (it's a bit disconcerting when your mother buys you leopard-print underwear), but this could be a more interesting option (I still haven't read half of the books I got for Christmas last year.) But I can't see a way for them to see if someone else has already bought me something off my list so I don't get duplicates - does anyone know if you can?

I just love the etsy seller "Courage My Love" Her photography is so magical.

PS-I don't think there is an option to show if something is already bought for you. But if something on your list is sold, it will show that it was; only problem is, it may not have been bought for you! But that is a good idea to forward on to etsy.

WOohoo for Perla Anne! I bought some of her Eames chair prints for my sister for Christmas and they arrived looking even better than I expected!

Etsy is SOOO dangerous...

I know - my Perla Anne print is much nicer than I thought too. I left it blank, but I wish I had got it signed and dated. I never went on Etsy before I started reading blogs - I need to avoid it too, but I feel like I need to champion the little guy! (Plus it is my desire to have my own Etsy shop, selling what I don't know - I haven't got any talents like that.)

Oh my goodness this post is perfection! I'm looking for eye candy for my walls in my office. I write so this is great for me. I've never tried an Amazon list. Might be a good idea...
