This typewriter belonged to my husband's Grandmother. It has been on a shelf in my office for four years and I always wanted to use it in challenge. This is the first. Thanks for the wonderful comments.

Wow, never expected to ribbon with this score. I really appreciated the nice comments.

Younger folks would hurt their fingers typing on these machines :). Congrats on the ribbon Mary!

You have a very good eye for detail, Mary. Those wilting flowers add the perfect touch of sadness to the image. Excellent work and congrats on the ribbon.

Nostalgic, and interesting. Vignette is a little heavy for me, but that's just my opinion.

I think I learned to type on something like this (haha), but no Dear John letters. Really neat idea and wonderful execution.

The wilting flowers are a nice indicative touch of your relationship :)
Enjoyable image, could be made into a motivational de-motivational one :)

Super shot. Where did you find the underwood? And I'm sure that letter was not typed on this one LOL Lovely

The drooping flowers add a lot of back story to this image. Seems like the writer has been dwelling on this letter for a while.

Love the old typewriter and dying flowers, I could see this being the cover of a romance novel. Good lighting/exposure too. I'm not sure how closely it relates to the song but I like it.

Oh the dreaded "dear John" ... nicely done.
