Our challenge was to use this wonderful wheel in a display.  This is the first of many projects that will use my "Kari Wheel"!

Santa's Sleigh and St. Nicholas are my two new favorites for the Holidays. Just type in the names in the search box. But make sure to browse while you're there.
I printed the saying on a page from an old book using a size 50 font. I trimmed the page down to 8 1/2 X 11 to fit my printer. For Halloween my typewriter said "Trick or Treat." For Christmas, Sarah suggested "Dear Santa..." The possibilities are endless! Posted: 7:17 pm on November 24th

Your post is great! I just love the typewriter display and you've captured another great idea with the "Count Your Blessings". Thanks for sharing! Could you share where you got the font you used? I love it!

I love this! Perhaps you may want to share with all our fellow Junk Market friends the website where you found the free typewriter font!

Also...to add to the story - the other items are also junking giftees from our circle of friends: Japanese lanterns fron Jani - likely the Queen of Nature grew these in her gardens! Turkey planter from Sarah - who the story goes - opened her box of thanksgiving decor to find that somehow the turkeys had multiplied since last November.

And the poem in altered art/collage form from Nan just needs to be shared with all - will you??
