Object of beauty. We loved callbob's description of an object of beauty in her home from this giveaway: By far my bakelite rotary phone. It's original, super heavy, vintage, and still fully functional, as it was intended many years ago. It's beautiful to me because it is an everyday reminder to me to take it slowly, sit back comfortably and enjoy a lovely conversation with a voice on the receiver...Just putting my finger in the rotary dial to make a call reminds me of how beautiful it once was and still is today. It is also a constant reminder to me that I will never have a need for cellular phones, and thumbs up for that.
