Hello!  Yes! You there! Welcome to my blog.  I am Lauren Ziemski, and I write.  I also collect typewriters.  I write about them at thecarriagereturn.com.  I had a baby in September of 2014 and she’s the coolest.  Sometimes I write about her, and sometimes I write about not-her.  Mostly I write because if I don’t, I’ll go mad.   My head is always full of stuff, so I need to get it out somehow.  This blog seems as good an outlet as any.  I like all the normal stuff people like: gardening, cooking, crafting, blah blah blah.  I also like antique shopping and sorting paper.  So there you have it.

So, my ma says, “Why’dya have to go and cut your shoes in half?”

So I says, I says, “MA!  Whaddya mean?!?  They didn’t fit!  So I cut about an inch out and glued ‘em back together”.
