{lovely retro telephones}

I want a retro telephone!!! I have been drooling over this cute little phone from Pottery Barn for a long time now. The vintage design nicely hides all of it's modern conveniences like redial, flash, and a rotary dial plate with push buttons! Cute huh?  Bet it has the cutest retro sounding ring tones too :)

I found a similar design you can purchase online from Retro Wonders:

Wouldn't this be the perfect accessory to your home office or kitchen telephone desk? I think I want it in the brushed chrome finish, though I love them both!

I think my kitchen telephone desk is calling out for one of these phones!! Maybe for my b-day :)  Happy Friday!!

Very cute phones and nice pictures of them in place. It makes you want to sit down with a cup of tea and just chat!

I love retro phones too :-) Funny how now that we've moved completely away from rotary phones, we want phones that look like rotary phones!!

I hope you get the chrome one for your birthday :-)

Thanks so much for linking to Matt's campaign in your sidebar :-) And thanks for sharing your stories about your uncle and your boss. Although cancer is a terrible thing, it must be fascinating working in a field where you can see how cancer effects our bodies. Keep up the research!!

Good luck in our giveaway :-)

HAHA! The "sit down phones"! Much better than the "pace around phones"! I snooped into your portfolio, and boy are you talented!! I love painting myself, and I adore your work! My fav is the girl with the telephones. Reminds me of miss Jolie. And just curious; are you a molecular biologist?

Yep. I like these phones! I was thinking about how I might not like being tied down to one place when talking since it's not a cordless phone, but truth be told I believe I very much like the idea of knowing where my phone IS when it's ringing!! Ha!

I'm happy you like my button pillows :-) You'll have to share yours soon! I love the sound of vintage buttons!!
