Toy Telephone & Milk Cartons


 Today is Rednesday........ so here is my red sampling for you.
I know this old toy phone is not bright shiny red any more....
 and it does have splashes of other colors....
but I just had to show it to you anyway. cool huh??????
and here are some old milk cartons.
 I thought since they said Chula Vista Dairy
they must be from California...but.....
 They are actually from right here in Eugene.
Must have been long ago,
 cause I grew up here and never heard of it before.
So, two new additions to the shop. Fun!
Thanks for visiting, now please go see even more reds.

That phone is just the cutest thing and I have not seen one of those before. Vintage toys were one of my favorite impulses for years...
Love the milk cartons and you could probably google them or contact your local historic society for more information. They may even come right over and buy them up!

That phone is adorable! Sometimes the best reds (or any color) are the faded ones! Amazing how those cartons survived all these years.
