Two Things i Love... Around my Home.

our vintage phones




Marilyn a biography by Norman Mailer
pictures by the world's foremost photographers

copyright 1973


i picked up this book at an estate sale and though i remember it being pricey, i had to have it; fragile spine and all. 270 pages of iconic Monroe. Stolen moments. Candid expressions. And the above; a gorgeous series.

Love those phones; reminds me of table full of them that they always have in one of our local antiques shops.
I finally got round to doing 'two things' today.
