Vintage typewriter for birthday girl

I found a $12 vintage typewriter (with case!!) and since Chiana is pursuing a career in writing this seemed like the perfect birthday find. Totally fits her style as well. Every author should have one even if it is only a decorative item. I cleaned it up, found new typewriter ribbon and voila! Works great and turns out the whole family is using it for those spontaneous and random thoughts and messages. :) Very fun.
