It made me feel old and I'm only in my 20's.

And my birthday is three months away!!!

I received my jar from camelama this morning.  I have been too busy to open in up and photograph the contents but I already see it is filled with charms, cute little figures that I like, beads, and all kids of colorful things!!  I know it will be amazing, just look at the jar itself!  And inside the box were two organic )food bars (thanks for not putting in meltable things Cheesy! ) and origami paper with a dessert theme.  Later today, when I have time to photograph and list, I will.    I can't wait!

We still have the little Playskool people farm (the old one) and my grandsons both really love it.  My own kids loved it and when my daughter was pregnant I bought one at a yard sale for $1 - later I found out they go for crazy amounts of $ in antique stores!

Don't feel bad about the phone - I still have one like that in my kitchen!  It's from about the 40s and weighs a ton.  People are always amazed that I have it and that it still works.

It's not that I don't want to swap, it's that I often don't have time.  But feel free to ask (especially if it's one that's not too time consuming).

I was always jealous, growing up, of a friend whose father still had one of the original type phones where you'd joggle the handset to get an operator. Smiley He'd pretend to call Santa for us once a year.  Har har.

Great jars, everyone!  I love seeing all the different whimsies!  I went a bit bead-and-button heavy on mine, I'm thinking.  Hmmm.

And yay, Quail, those are local (well, made in WA) vegan bars that I just adore, and I figured even if they did melt, there wasn't much in them to melt, so it would still be ok for eating.   I'm not a vegan but I really like some vegan products.  Smiley

What's that little round thing with the numbers in the 3rd pic? It looks interesting...
It's a little metal telephone!!!

Having someone not recognize the telephone made me feel incredibly old....

there's also a knitting row counter in the 3rd picture, which is round with numbers on it.

Don't worry, Penlowe. I think the "round thing" in question is the plastic cylinder that FlashleyAshley has identified as a "knitting row counter." (I didn't know what that was, either.)

Of course, it's conceivable that some of our fellow craftsters may never have used rotary-dial phones...in which case, I'm feeling old right along with you!

And don't forget, the old phones can still be useful!

When the power goes out, all your cordless phones etc won't work.  So keep an old style phone around to plug in.  Of course, the rotary phones won't dial out on some networks these days, as the pulse-tones are phased out of use - but you can always receive calls on them!  So an old push-button phone is of good use too, for dialing out during power outages.

(I know, I know, "use your cell phone!".  But does your cell always have full power?  I know I forget and let mine get really low! And you can't charge it up during a power outage! Hee)
