Even though I am a morning person through and through, there is something about the fading light in late afternoon that I just love. When dusk approaches, I turn on a few small lamps in my studio that make the room feel extra cozy.
One of my newest acquisitions sits in a pool of light on my worktable: a 1956 Smith-Corona typewriter. Having sold similar machines in the past, I purchased it for my Etsy shop. I even found a brand new ribbon online, so now this relic works beautifully.
I really like its Art Deco styling, sage green color, and the clatter the keys make. Funny because this mid-century model is called the Silent-Super. Back in the day, maybe it was considered one of the quieter portable typewriters. It's fun to use and I find it endearing, so perhaps I will keep it around for a while.
