"This is the Inspector!"

Will picked out our very first house accessory the other day. We knew we needed a fridge, a microwave, and other assorted necessities... but we figured our first house purchase needed to be something fun and frivolous.

Our house has a phone stand built into the wall in the hallway, so naturally that frivolous purchase needed to be an antique rotary phone. Because how else are we supposed to pretend we are in an old British inspector film if we don't have a phone that we can pick up and declare (in our poshest accents) "This is the Inspector!"

Will really does that every time he walks down the hall, and he's got me doing that, too - although, my British accent is terrible and I tend to sound Indian. Don't know why. He is more convincing.

But seriously, isn't this phone the best? It works and has the cutest ring EVER and Will picked it up for only $20 at a nearby antique store.

Sweet!

xoxo,

That phone is TOTALLY cool! Our new house has more of a modern feel (going for something different after 10 years) but the phone would have fit right in at our old place...I love stuff like that :)

I just to have a phone EXACTLY like that! Very fun. And how fun to have a telephone stand built into the wall. :-)

oh, Marisa, only you would buy something because it "has the cutest ring EVER." Just like you make the best nachos EVER!

You guys are funny! In my house, that phone would be too much of a temptation for the kids to want to play with...all day long. They'd probably end up dialing Africa. On the flip side, we are desperately in need of a non electrical phone for those times when the power goes out...which seems like a lot lately.
