Dining Room Teaser

What do the following two things have in common?

Underwood "Portable" Typewriter

1951 Edition of "The Everyday Reference Library"

Both of these items followed my husband from his Grandma and Grandpa’s home to university, and onward into our life together.  He learned to type on the “portable”, while the Reference Library taught him any additional skill he cared to learn.   In many ways they are reminders of his grandparents and the precious time he spent with them.

The typewriter worked until the move before last, and I’m planning on finding out how to get it repaired for him.  I doubt he’ll ever use it again, but…

Decorating should be about who you are.  He’s about words.  I think these will live in our Dining Area…  Food for the soul and heart.
