My 12 year old niece went with us to a flea market recently and discovered a rotary phone... something she had never seen before. She loved it and wanted one. We found her one but it was a bit beat up so I altered it a little to jazz it up. She absolutely loves it (and the matching earrings I made) and the coolest part is that the phone still works. They called me from it to say hello today! I love to make those kids happy!
Here's the card:
Here's the altered rotary phone. You wouldn't believe how heavy it is or how long it takes to actually dial a number! ha ha
And here are the earrings I made her.
No excuse not to get phone calls from her now! ha ha
