There are many things I’ll need to purchase when the Dr and I finally get into our new home, but for some reason the item occupying my thoughts today is a retro telephone.
There are lots of options of course. Some a little twee – perhaps more fitting in Hyacinth Bucket’s home than mine!
A swift gander through the virtual shelves on Amazon and eBay gave me plenty of food for thought. I think my favourite is this old classic. Funnily enough it’s the one we had when I was growing up. Literally for most of my life. It was rural Wales and things didn’t change very much or very quickly!
But oh, oh, the colours, the beautiful colours. I think I’m probably going to have to go for something on the mint/pale blue/teal spectrum but that mustard is a winner too… Decisions, decisions!
Of course, this would be fun, but I just think it’s a little but too kitsch – even for me!
This lady was my first true telephone love – unfortunately I don’t think she’ll cut the mustard in terms of communication. I may save her for a later purchase…
It is with an image of myself, fingers entangled in telephone cord, I say:
It’s only vintage but I like it…
