Light is great today and I will be painting all afternoon - so don't call me. I have a collection of great vintage phones and I really enjoy the sound of a dial rotating and clicking. They are not sitting in boxes, I actually use them on a daily basis. My favorite is an old white (uncommon) business phone from the 40's with the original three prong plug. I actually change out the kitchen wall phone (circa 1960) to suit my mood. I love the classic black, but the red, yellow, and green get in the rotation in the spring. One year I gave my youngest a fantastic turquoise bedroom phone with "modern" push-buttons. It is a bedroom phone because it does not ring. Very clever in my opinion. Most visitors are startled by the ring either because they have never heard one, or they have forgotten what it sounds like. They are quite loud and easy to hear even with my headphones on while I'm working. Ironically, I despise talking on the telephone. Well, back to my brushes.
