Simple home decor with vintage typewriter and twinkly white lights

I love to decorate simple with the occasional vintage item and twinkly white lights.

Ever since learning to type with 2 fingers on my uncle’s portable typewriter I have always loved typewriters. Can’t say typing was my favourite role in my early days of working in a bank, but now with laptops, phones and tablets, everyone does their share of typing!

For a number of years I have been watching on ebay for a typewriter that was blue and affordable – finally found this one back in June, and it has sat in my hallway ever since. Probably going to move it during Christmas, but then it will be back.

Here it is in summer, with some pretty fresh flowers

My love of twinkly white lights – not so sure where that comes from, because as a child our Christmas tree lights were always multi-coloured. Ever since we have been married, all our christmas lights are white – and not just white ….. has to be WARM white! Anything else just isn’t as pretty!

Last year I finally added white lights and net curtain on the wall behind our bed, so now I can have twinkly lights all year round!

My daughters also share my love of white lights

I also have these twigs/white lights in our hallway – so upstairs and down, all year round …. I have my warm white lights! (Yes – I might be slightly obsessed …. but at least I have insight!)

Do you have a particular thing you like to decorate with?

Do share so I know I’m not alone!
