Junkin' treasures

I love watching American Pickers on the History Channel and even though I am not a "junker"...that's what we call them in our family...my sister and brother-in-law are the best junkers I know! I am lucky cuz all I have to do is give them my wish list and they go on the hunt!

Here are just a few of the recent treasures they have gotten for me. Thanks Jan and Pat!!! :)

 A wonderful Corona typewriter that still works! The case is the to the left with my hubby's old slinky from the fifties. A 1959 Highlight's Magazine and a great book, Art for Children...I found those two gems. :)

 A very cool small portable Corona typewriter and a couple old fans.

This is what I woke up to on March 14th!

And it's started snowing like crazy again since this picture! It's a white out at the moment outside my studio window.
What is even crazier than this? It's supposed to be up to 70 by Thursday! That's the best part of Spring snows...they don't stick around very long.
