I bought a cute little vintage toy phone at the antique store for $6.00 this weekend.
From the photos it looks like a full size vintage phone, but it's only 5" long by 3" tall. Very petite for a toy phone, I think.
It almost looks like the phone I grew up with. Black with rotary dial.
Please tell me I wasn't the only person that used to get their fingers caught in the holes in the rotary dial. Maybe I just had pudgy fingers?
I'm shopping for a new cell phone today and the decisions are endless. Am I an iPhone person? Am I am Android person? Do I stay with Blackberry? Who has cooler apps? Which carrier has the better plan? Just buy the darn phone already!
Back in this phone's time you had one choice. Black. AT&T. Take it or leave it, lady!
Do you live and die by your cell phone or could you just as easily survive without it?
For my photo effects, I used Pioneer Woman's Action Set - Boost at 100% opacity, Kim Klassen's Pumpkin Grunge texture in Soft Light at 100% opacity and her Simplicity texture in Multiply at 40% opacity for all these photos.
This is so adorable and i did not know they existed!!!! We had a real version of this one! I miss the dial phones.
My husband wants the android. Anyways I could live without my cell because i when i am out i always forget to turn it on lol!!!
Flip phone here.... No bells and whistles..... I don't use it except for long distance and for quick convenience when I'm out. I don't get the whole texting thing. I'd rather talk to someone. Takes me too long to switch between numbers and letters, even on my husband's blackberry. And it is sheer H*&# to do it on MY phone! LOL
I love the olden phone the husband bought at the antique store. It is heavy as all get out, it still works, and it looks cool!
Dumb phone for me, no internet needed. Will not pay that extra fee as I am cheap. The wee phone is too cute.
Cute phone! I just got my little one an old rotary phone and he thinks it is the best fun ever! Did we ever think that we should keep them when we were desparate to upgrade to the push button phones?!
I don't live by my phone but I would miss it if I
didn't have it. We have Blackberry's and I will
keep mine--Ken like's his but it has some issues.
He wouldn't mine a different one.
We had a rotary phone when I was growing up-
Oh what a cute phone! Sometimes I long for the days when our only means of communication were either that little black phone or hollering out the back door! Between my cell phone, hand-held phone, ipad, and computer I feel like I never have any privacy! But all in all I guess I'm glad we have easy ways of connecting to each other. Now I'm off to check out more of your blog:)
ring ring ringgggggggg
hello this is Danielle. That phone is darn cute and I can't believe you only paid $6.00 for it!
What an adorable small version of a an old vintage phone. I remember the bigger ones well. Life was so simple then. Good luck with that cellphone choice. We went with ANDROID Global 2. Love it. Easy to operate, etc. That was a year ago may be obsolete now? Everything changes at warp speed. take care.
I have never seen a toy rotary dial phone, so cute. Nice shot.
Pam this is your best find yet. I love vintage toy phones. I have two chippy metal ones. One in red and one in white. I love them both. I've never seen one like you've found. I'm so excited for you.
Your toy phone is too cute! I remember playing with a plastic Princess phone but your black rotary dial is way cooler! As for a cell phone, I'm using my son's old flip phone. He's the one with the iPhone! Go figure. I've been considering upgrading but hate to pay for the data plan. Good luck on your decision. Oh and I'm having my first every Choose Joy Giveaway at Cottage and Creek. Please stop by to enter and join the fun 🙂

That is so cute, Pam...what a deal! I love old toy phones! Your photos are lovely!
Love the phone Pam! The only reason I have a cell phone is for school contact, otherwise I could totally live with out it.
I love this phone. I am looking for the original one. Boy, are they pricey. I can remember listening in on the party line til mama caught me.
I can take or leave the cell phone. I don't use unless I am away from home. Even then it is turned off or has a dead battery. Go figure.
