I remember being a secretary in the days of old technology. Using a clunky typewriter, correction fluid that would spill, typewriter ribbons, and forever smudged fingers from changing broken typewriter ribbons. I am thankful for today's technology and the days of manually putting paper back in the typewriter to fix a typo, long behind us. I think that this fabric would make cute pajamas.

pennycandy says: This WUOLD make cute pajamas! I love that you included Wite Out! I still use an old Remington occasionally to get the right effect, and for fun, hand-typed letters. Today's keyboards and touch screens are nice (and a break for our fingers), but there's nothing like actually feeling the metal hit the paper on the old typewriters, huh? ;-)

karenharveycox says: Thank you Rhonda, My father gave me a portable typewriter when I was eleven years old. Whenever I am in a Vintage shop and I see one, I think of him. I love your story and it's so much fun to spend time with our memories.

rhondadesigns says: Your delightful design featuring old-fashioned typewriters, will be sure to bring back many memories related to their use! My Dad gave me a portable Facit typewriter for my 17th birthday and I thought it was wonderfully modern and so much easier to use than his old Remington! I used it for typing my high school and college essays and assignments. Many a time, very late at night, with deadlines looming on the next morning's horizon, I would spend hours tap, tap, tapping away only to have to rip up and retype pages that had ghastly errors that could not be erased! Computers have certainly made the process more user friendly! (Except when they refuse to co-operate!)

karenharveycox says: That's sounds very familiar. I worked in NYC for Xerox in the 70's and I had an Executive typewriter. Proportionally spaced printwheels had characters each with a different spacing. Correcting was a nightmare.

I remember so well I would spend days typing with the SC that had the changeable font disks typing up my flyers, entry forms and program book and spending 24/7 for a week in kinkos enlarging, cutting and pasting from scratch all my papers for my western wear pageants it was some crazy times
