Fabulous Friday Finds: Finding Love


Sometimes you find love in the strangest places.  I have found love is usually present in the little things or in the people you may take for granted.  You only see it when you choose to see it.  When you look for it, you will find it.  The point is, love is strange and sometimes we loose sight of it and where it comes from.  So what does this have to do for a type writer I found at a thrift store?  

I was taking photographs of the charming thing when I thought it would be nice to get pictures of it from a different perspective.  I thought the metal letter keys were quite appealing in their aesthetic so I decided to see what words I could spell.  I gently pressed the keys down to see what words worked.  I was pleasantly surprised when all the keys came into place where I could spell love.  I found this warmed my heart because the keys had to correspond with the correct spelling left to right in order to do this.  If the "e" would have been to the left even one letter it would not have spelled out "l-o-v-e".  

To me, this simple alignment of the word "love" was so symbolic of love in real life.  You only see it when you look for it.  It may line up when you don't expect it to work out.  You may be surprised at what you find.
