When I was a wee little tot, staying with my Aunt Lucille was a treat beyond all others. Whether it was the seemingly endless costume jewelry drawer or the Matchbox car collection her older son had outgrown or the not-so-secret stash of soft peppermint candy, my sister and I were in heaven. Our very favorite thing to do there was play with her telephones. Maybe it was because she had been an operator for the telephone company in her younger years, but she had phones in every room of her house, and even two in her hallway! I'm certain at least a few of them looked exactly like this vintage phone image from Webster's Pages' Call Me.
I went with a soft, shabby look today, with lots of distressing, paint, stitching, and some crinkled seam binding. The woodgrain paper is from Crate Paper (it's in both Restoration and Emma's Shoppe), and the other papers are all from the Melissa Frances 5th Avenue collection.
The layout is this month's Sketch For You To Try. Visit this post for all the participation details and to link up your entry. You have until the end of the month to play along!
Have a great weekend!
