Decorating with Vintage Telephones

There is just something about the sound of the rotary phone as the dial slips back into place. A very nostalgic sound! The stand is sold by Moxie Thrift on etsy. Nice simple display with a Kodak Brownie, can use any vintage camera and I have loads in my shop, and the vintage phone on top. I happen to like the blue crackle phone that I have for sale in my shop!
This last picture is a phone sold by KlassyKlassics' on etsy. Not super old just a nice phone from the 70s.

The Iron Bed Search---Redecorating the Guest Bedroom

I love cast iron beds! Great vintage/antique item. I think every house should have one. We bought a full size for my daughter's room and repainted it and it is absolutely beautiful! Now I am on the hunt for a twin for my guest bedroom and will put a trundle underneath. The top photo ( is lovely but I do like them with a foot-board and I think I will be using a vintage chenille bedspread.  I will post a picture of the final product. Won't be until August when the oldest goes back to college.
