I must say, it is quite refreshing to press a regularly-sized handset against my ear. My carpal tunnel has never been happier. Also, how adorable are rotary phones? They are irresistible!
We used to have this yellow phone when I was a kid. An elderly woman owned our house before us, and I recall going to visit her when my parents were finalizing the details of the purchase. Her house was glowing from all the warm golden hues of her furnishings. In a glass cabinet was a large collection of mini porcelain animals (she gave me a raccoon, a cat, and a chipped bichon frise dog as gifts and I treasured them for years) and her wallpaper was a vibrant 1970s floral print. However, my favourite part of the house was her dining table centrepiece - a man made out of plastic fruit, complete with banana body and grape hair. He sat on a perfectly white doily and I had never wanted anything more in my life than that banana man.
