Vintage Finds - Office
Yesterday we trawled a few garage sales and I found many goodies I liked, but I had Andy with me, who kept me in check. Note: do NOT take him with me next time.
I did manage to bring home this lovely black phone, that apparently works, but I need to find the right connection as we upgraded in the reno. I must say I do like the hands free phones, but I'm constantly loosing it and have to ring it from my mobile to find it. So this baby will sit beautifully on my desk never to move away to far. I'll probably still use my mobile to ring it, just it hear it's sweet ringing purr.
I also found these lovely wood office trays, to add to my vintage office collection.
Sweet old book $1.00. I love the images in it and might use them to create some embroidery.
I found this typewriter in a box that has been in storage and thought it would add to the look.
Going through these old storage boxes, I have come across treasures that I forgot I had, which has been fun rediscovering again.
