Fun Decorating Idea

I love to decorate for Christmas!  This year I bought a cute vintage toy typewriter on Etsy.  On my computer, I picked out a pretty font, and then I printed out a Merry Christmas message on parchment colored paper (to keep with the vintage look).  I then put it into the typewriter to make it look like I used the typewriter to type the message (even though the message is printed much bigger than a typewriter could do it).  It sits on display on top of an old suitcase in my living room. 

I change the "typed" message for different occasions, and put a personal welcome in it for when guests come to visit.  You could also put scripture in it, or how about a love note for someone special!  Any old typewriter will do, and the great part is, it doesn't even have to work to use it!

This was the message I put in it when my daughter and her family came for Thanksgiving.  I used a font on my computer called 'old Typewriter'


"...you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength."   Mark 12:30
