Vintage Telegraphy

Whilst the instant messaging platform ‘Telegram’ hasn’t reached the same heights of popularity as Facebook, it’s got us at The Telegram Office wondering if the app is worthy of its name?

Does it offer the same delights as receiving a personalised telegram in person? In short, the answer is most definitely no. Yet, new app hasn’t failed to attract users looking to interact with their loved ones in brand new ways.

Belgian Telegram

Traditional telegrams may be a thing of the past for most countries across the globe. Yet, there are some countries which kept the telegram around a little longer. With one country even sticking it out right up until 2017.

It may come as a surprise that it was, in fact, Belgium who never stopped using the telegram, or should I say “TȄLȄGRAMME”. This meant that one of the world’s oldest telegram operators finally closed their doors after 171 years of service.

Clay pot crafting is a great way to make home decorations especially for Christmas. You can make clay flowerpots for gardening as a gift or for your own home and garden. The pots can be painted and hung together with rope or cord to create ornamental decorations.

To make a decorative clay bell you will need to get a hold of two different sized pots. Buy a pot that is about five or six inches in diameter and another much smaller. You will use the smaller one as the clapper. You’ll also need some decorative cord, two large wooden beads and some paints in your desired colors. You might also want to have some jewels to decorate the bell, which you can glue on. This can make a nice decoration for a porch or home conservatory.
