A Re-Inherited Antique Phone.

 Just a short post today. 

 Thought I'd take this opportunuty to show you this great antique phone I inherited.





The ear-piece had come off, so I used epoxy glue to repair it.



And the dial cover was missing, so I took a picture of some hydrangeas from the internet and made my own .
I got the idea from this great antique French phone I found a picture of.



I really like this Danish antique phone- but I'll settle for mine which was" free".


Just for fun, here are some other antique phones that I love.



This one is sweet too!!!!



And I wouldn't kick this one out of my bedroom.



What can I say......



And this one satisfies my need for a little bling in my life.


But back to reality........



Here's the phone on my end table in my living room- and it even works . I'd forgotten how much work dialing a phone is , but I'll probably just use this phone for decoration, and to answer incoming calls.

  And did I mention that I saw the same phone at an antique store and they were asking $125.00 for it.  The shop owner said she could get twice that for it, so it made me happy to tell her I had the same one and I got it for free.

  3. Oh, my! I felt like I journeyed to the past when I saw your phones. I purchased one the same as the first one displayed back in 1978 from our phone company here in Canada. I also had purchased the one where you say "Yummy"...don't ask me where they are now...strange how things just seem to disappear over the years. I have joined your followers list and invite you to join my followers list; as well,I hope you will grab a blog button. Hugs, Gayle

  5. I recently bought one such classic looking French country furniture from a designer furniture store in London and the rustic appeal and ornate hand carvings on wood was truly sublime as I was basically looking for a vintage style furniture for my country house in Berkshire. I guess it would go on to impress my guests and friends who come enjoying their weekends in Berkshire.
