Those are some beautiful phones, though the only phones I could do is 500 color pair.

Absolutely stunning 302s by the way... :)

C'mon, Ben & Christian,

     Let's see your 500 contributions, pretty please, with sugar on top? It will just add to the festive mood here, which I greatly value and enjoy. Did I mention "Please"?

Best regards!
Sláinte!

Okay,

Not my greatest, but here we go. I thought I should make it different than just standerd 500's. So if Christian likes he can share his.

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO EVERYONE!

I wish you all a pleasant and peaceful time.
We are soon going to brighter and longer days.

Been busy the last couple of evenings making an seasonal Facebook picture.

Here it is, best version yet. Maybe I'll work on it some more.

Groeten,

The "Elf on the Shelf" set up all the green and red phones while my daughter was sleeping:

Yeah, I know, but the coiled ones if you don't have them correctly wound or are miss held start to look like junk..

Makes me want to put some phones out somewhere or on top of our piano, for some reason, I don't think my mother would be too happy.

Those are straight cords on those 302s.  The 500s came with a Teletrainer.  I forgot I had them till I was making space for the Christmas tree and I pulled them out of a corner.  A Christmas miracle! Except they are both duds.  The matching date 1960 in green with open faced fingerwheel is will be nice though.
