[ call me ]

REMEMBER this little diamond-in-the-rough I picked up on our cruise day in Nice at the antique market? {see post here}


I know, the poor thing was looking a little unloved. But I knew that I could get her looking as cute as a button.

A bit of a scrub and....


How cute is she?!

I've given her a special spot in the living room and I think she makes a fun accent in the room.


She was a bit heavy to carry around that day and I got a few strange looks when my bag went through the xray when re-embarking the ship.

But for 20 euros, she was a bargain!



Now just to remember not to accidentally pick up her handset whenever my phone rings!
