Saturday Shopping List


I love old fashioned telephones. My Dad worked for Telstra (formerly Telecom) for I think over 30 years so there were always a few old telephones around the house to play with when we were kids.

Ok ok... to be honest this post is really just a ploy to get you to go check out David Bowie makes a telephone joke so you can kick start your weekend with a giggle ;)

As for the to die for etsy items above, they are from these talented peeps:
1. Wooden Dial Telephone Christmas Decoration from Sniffleco Sure it's a Christmas decoration but I reckon you could hang it anywhere anytime for a bit of retro chic.
2. Telephone Girl Print from none other than The Black Apple
3. Red Vintage Telephone Classic Tote from The Craft Pantry
4. Phone iPhone 3G Case No. 14 (orange) from hine

Saturday Shopping List is a meme created by Charlotte, it's heaps of fun and a nice way to promote fellow etsians. Pop over to Fancy Picnic to see more lists or to play along.

And, if you're in Brisbane and you want to do some 'real time' handmade shopping head to the Young Designers Market at Southbank tomorrow (Sunday).

ok, that David Bowie phone call was hilarious! Thanks for the laugh! I do so love old style phones too... if only I had a need for a land line instead of just my cell phone.

We have an old bakelite phone in one of our upstairs bedrooms that came with the house (circa 1900)...works too! It takes forever to dial if someone has more than one zero in the number! Love it and since it is a permanent hookup, it will never leave the house!

Oh that's so fabulous! Made my morning! I heart Mr. Bowie too. Love your telephone collection, that tote is so cute. I was wondering what I should start collecting next, perhaps old phones would be perfect. Have a lovely weekend :)
