This vintage metal cocktail tray is absolute perfection and a dream to own for any fan of mid-century modern design! Embellished with a design of assorted Pink Cocktail Glasses and a boarder of prancing Pink Elephants, this 5 x 7-inch tray, officially known as  a “tip tray,” was originally sold in sets of four. Currently, lucky collectors can find them in stores that specialize in vintage pop culture collectibles, and on eBay and other auction sites.

This Pink Poodle Christmas Ornament (priced at just $14.50!) was spotted in the Simply Fresh Gift Shop in San Marino, California. They stock all kinds of cool gifts and slightly retro seasonal decorations, and I always enjoy shopping there when I am in LA for the holidaze!

Do you recognize this object? Do you know how works? How old are you? Don’t answer that. It’s hard to believe that this totally rad Pink Rotary Dial Desk Telephone was once the height of cool and contemporary consumer design. Now, it’s just a sculpture, or a piece pop culture ephemera.

Maybe you’ve seen one used as a prop in an old movie you enjoy for its nostalgic pull.

It is beautiful though, ins’t it? Sure it is.
