TWW JANUARY LETTER
Welcome guests to Time Warp Wives! We are delighted to have you over.
We are happy to be back from our Winter break all refreshed and ready to go! We hope that you all had a wonderful Winter break and that you are keeping yourself warm and dry while weathering the snow or rain.
Can you believe that it is 2011! Doesn't this year sounds so futuristic? If you lived lets say 50 years ago you would think that by this decade folks would be driving their flying cars (good thing we aren't because that would be a big mess) and that every home would have robots to do the cooking and cleaning. I personally don't mind borrowing Rosie from the Jetsons once in a while so that she can help me with some of my house chores!
Although we are not driving flying cars and have robots in our homes, yet. This past decade can be defined as the communication boom decade. No matter where you go in the world, somebody is either on their cell phone or on the internet. Yes, we have come a long way from the days of buying the newspaper from a paper boy to being able to read the news, make a phone call, and find an address on this one little device.
One of the best things in living in this era is that we can enjoy both the modern conveniences and vintage styles at the same time. Here at Time Warp Wives we are a big fan of the Steampunk concept. We totally love to see how folks are able to transform a generic modern gadget to a more appealing and workable piece of art. For instance at Gizmo Watch they posted 13 stylish Steampunk phones: gizmowatch. It would be totally swell if the cell phone company start making phones like these!
Now for those vintage folks out there that own a website or a blog MediaBoom is an award winning developer in web design that know a little thing or two in vintage design concepts. Their own website is one of our favorites: http://mediaboom.com.
Lately at our Time Warp Wives headquarters we have been enjoying our new old fashion turntable. We have been listening to our vintage records and old T. V.shows on cd while lounging in our Paris room. At night before going to bed we love to turn on to one of our favorite old time Jazz stations while enjoying some quality family time.
Oh and by the way some of these vintage modern turntables not only plays record, but also cd, and radio. And some also play tape. Here are some of the latest turntable models at: Jcpenney.
Want to enjoy some great retro event for the coming weeks? You are welcome to visit our: Event Calendar.
Hope that you have a wonderful month! And don't forget to drop us a note once in a while.We would love to hear from you!
