The Red Hotline


Well it's Rednesday again! Rednesday is becoming one of my favorite days in Blog Land because I love red so much!! I love vintage style telephones and I especially love this red wall phone. I purchased it from Pottery Barn several years ago. Although I like the convenience of my cell phone, I just love the look of vintage phones! It seems that only happy calls could be made or received on a cheerful red phone.


Of course, if you receive a call from a friend about a great garage sale, or a special at the market, it's always handy to have a cheerful red oil cloth shopping bag at the ready!!


And of course, if you need to sit and chat for a while with your friend, it's good to have a cheerful red stool nearby. Thanks for visiting my little red corner. Be sure to stop by at Sue's blog It's a Very Cherry World. She and the other girls have some great reds to share with you. Excuse me, I better sign off, my red hotline is ringing now!!

Love,
Susan and Bentley

  2. I love old phones too! I have an aqua Princess phone that I got at a garage sale last year. The ringer doesn't work, but I can make and receive calls. I actually enjoy using the rotary dial. Sometimes! It definitely takes longer to make a call! Love your oilcloth bag too. I wish there was some cute oilcloth to buy around here, because I'd love to make a bag and a tablecloth for the patio table!
    Happy REDnesday,
    Carol

  17. I adore your phone. I have always wanted one of those. Reminds me of when I was a kid sitting on the kitchen stool and talking on the rotary wall phone (back in the 70's). Thanks for sharing your brilliant reds!
