  8. I adore old vintage everything, but typography makes me weak in the knees. Seriously. I'm a dork like that. Thank you so much for sharing. I can't wait to go check out everyone's typographical treasures. Your old measuring tapes and printers' blocks are awesome!! Love them!

    Have a great week!

  31. I love numbers and definitely letters (afterall, letters in names are what my artwork is all about haha)

    I see that quite a number of items have their ties with Wisconsin...my dad's family are from Wisconsin... I love going to estate sales when we are up visiting him.

    Blessings & Aloha!
