I love vintage, I love old door knobs and spindle legs. I love old suitcases and old furniture like Sewing Cabinets. I love irons and washboards and all those things that remind me of a time long ago. Vintage Typewriter Decor does just that for me. It actually reminds me of 1992.
I know that 1992 wasn’t really that long ago, but I’ve got a story about 1992 just for you!

Vintage Typewriter Decor!
I remember when typewriters were the thang, do you? Yes, prior to the year 1992 typewriters were still the thang, just like landlines and voicemail machines and fax machines.
Do you remember using a typewriter? Nowadays, we are all on Laptops and iPads and Cellphones. I’m not even sure what the Ribbon Key is, do you remember?
In 1992, I graduated from College and landed my first job in the Corporate World in San Francisco, California. I was such a proud College graduate. I loved getting all corporate dressed in the morning. I’d proudly walk to the Muni Bus Stop and get on the crowded bus where we all waited for the bus to take us downtown.
I was so impressed with PhotoWall. They reached out to me to choose a product from their online store. I love vintage so I started my search there. The old typewriter canvas print jumped right out at me. It was a bit of a toss up because I was considering a canvas print of my little family of five, as well. PhotoWall allows you to provide them a photograph and they make it into a print or wallpaper…how cool is that.
But back to 1992. I was such a proud Corporate World worker bee and looking back it truly shaped the person I am today. I spent ten years, after college, living and working in the Corporate World and then I got tired of Muni Buses.
I moved south to the suburbs where the weather was warmer and the parking was easier. Buses were not as common, most just drove their car to work. Of course, we all carried laptops or iPads to and from home.
I love vintage and I’m always looking for more vintage decor. I knew my home was in need of a new Canvas Print. When I saw the Vintage Typewriter I kind of feel in love. The ordering process was so easy and my shipment arrived in 3 days.
The old typewriter canvas print sits nicely next to my desk in the Family Room. When the Canvas Print arrived, I opened the box and found instructions on how to put the item together. Putting together the item was so easy and it literally took me a few minutes. All of the hardware was included and it was super simple. I did not even need any tools to put it together.
There was even hanging hardware include in the box. On the PhotoWall website, there is a short video which explains how to put Canvas Prints together.
PhotoWall also carries a variety of Wall Paper and Prints and Posters. You can even customize with your own photographs. The possibilities are endless.
When I started my career in the corporate world 28 years ago, we used telephones with voicemail boxes attached, typewriters and scanners. Fax machines were also becoming popular, but most people did not own a fax machine in their home. Our business relied heavily on the postal service for mail. I was a Human Resources Recruiter and so we received alot of mailed resumes.
Almost 30 years later we live in a world where everything can be done from a Cell Phone, Laptop or iPad. Most don’t even go into the office on a daily basis.
Of course, with our current situation in the year 2020, we are being asked to work from home more often. I love the quote below by Nate Berkus.
