yeah I like them





So I think I'm going to paint one. These old school tellies are cool. I think they would be sweet for a kids room, or a modern bedroom maybe. I just like them. I'm not going to fight it any longer. They are all so darn cute- how do you choose one?

I bought an awesome bright red telephone on eBay, much like the pink and cream one. When it finally arrived however, I tested it out and it wouldn't ring! I think it had something to do with the newer phone lines and the different connection in my apartment (it needed a converter for the connection point so I think that was the issue). When I sent it back, the seller told me it was working fine on their end. I was so sad, and now I'm afraid to buy another one in case the same thing happens. I shall just look and adore from afar :)

They even have a super cute miniature version out on the market at Pottery Barn kids!

Dude have you seen the chrome phone at the Red Dot Boutique (Target)? Ironically I fell in love with it the other day. They also have it in a wall model for 39.99!
