As hubby and me are getting older and I have a metal hip, I thought a while back it would be good to clean out the attic, as it's very hard for me to climb the small ladder. The entrance to the attic is a square hole of 3x3 feet perhaps, 90x90 cm. I really would not want for the kids someday to have to clean out that mess for us. So today I decided to take down another batch of plastic bags, boxes and crates (some of the things are packed in wooden vegetable market crates, in which I shipped my books from Holland 24 years ago!).
And look what I found! Two of my long lost friends, that I didn't know I owned anymore. I once lend my typewriter to a student and I was sure I had given it to him as a present, but he must have returned it to me! I bought that typewriter in 1981 when I was 17 and doing a typist course. I saved for it with my pocketmoney for ages! The other item is my flowerpress. This I bought from pocketmoney when I was 12 or so and it must be some 35 years old! Just the other day I came across a blogger, Her Creative Spirit, who made the most beautiful tags and cards with dried flowers and I wished I still had my press. And voila :)
