My painting of the day(ish) was inspired by a classic, pink, princess phone. These used to be all the rage and you can still buy a replica at Crosley Radio. The new-fangled edition has push-button dialing rather than a rotary dial so you can save your nails.
My very first purchase on layaway (remember layaway?—it's making a comeback in these tough economic times) was a vintage-look phone at Radio Shack. Ah, I made my mother crazy with all the hours I spent talking with girlfriends on that phone. I though I was so cool like a modern 1980's Jean Harlow.
