T'was a Typospherian Christmas

Our holiday this year was low-key. Brother Woodcrafter and his family and sister-in-law Hiker - all of whom live in the Pacific Northwest - made sure the Typosphere was honored.

We always need two calendars in our house.  Beloved Spousal Unit's alma mater, Dartmouth College, always comes through with one. Then we usually wait until the January markdowns to find the second - often of dubious design (but for $5, who complains?). Happily, Hiker made that unnecessary.

The machines pictured are mostly mid-20th century. 
And very brightly colored! (Did they really make a PINK Skyriter?)

And this book is one I'd not heard of before, surprising given the number of Typospherian bloggers I follow!

Its copyright date is 2005, which precedes my Typospherian days by at least five years! Has anyone out there read this?

Woodcrafter sent along a lovely ribbon tin - for a Remington. I can see why collecting these tins would be so fun. I just love the artwork on its cover. 


And on a non-related note, the Himmelfutter dessert was perfect (and the family members with allergies - and who were made their own bowl - found that it is still quite good made sans walnuts and with gluten free flour)!
