The thing I love most about vintage typewriters has to be, hands down, that satisfying ding of the return bell ... The sound alone conjurs up so many great images from the past ... busy, chattering newsrooms before deadline, an oak-paneled college library filled with co-eds and coffee ... or my favorite, a sweetheart carefully typing out a secret love letter to his beautiful bride-to-be.
What's not to love, right? That's why I get so excited to see more and more couples including these gorgeous relics of the past in their weddings either as guestbook stations or just as fabulous decor.

This is a gorgeous Tiffany blue-colored Smith Corona portable typewriter from the 1960s - really the laptop of its day! It is a Cougar model and comes with its original hard carrying cover/case and has a cute handle that makes transporting a cinch.
Finally, I just absolutely adoooooore the Tiffany blue shade of my typewriter and couldn't resist placing it in this Tiffany Blue wedding board I created awhile ago:
Doesn't it just look like it belongs? Love it! It would be perrrrrrrrfect if you're throwing a Tiffany blue wedding. ;o)
