what hubs found!

my dear hubs, whom i love more than life, has done it again! the man has a gift, i tell ya! i mention something i am on the lookout for, and he finds it at a thrift store or an antique mall for cheap and pronto. that's exactly what he did last week! i told him that i have always wanted an old typewriter - this time for text use in collage and art journals for this upcoming show (nothing can compare to the original type on one of those old-fangled things). for 20 bucks and less than an hour mending a broken table leg,
this is what he came home with, much to my delight. a real, honest-to-goodness underwood no. 5!! i'm so thrilled! i am so gonna have to keep him, wouldn't you agree? (and yes, you can still purchase ribbons for said underwood! yay!)
