Beverly at How Sweet the Sound is hosting Pink Saturday. Stop by her blog and check out the other pinkies.
I first saw this lamp at Hallmark in 1979. It was the most beautiful lamp I had ever seen. The glass is a pink translucent frosted glass with beige hand-painted flowers. It matched my pink and beige bedroom perfectly, ... but it was over $100. I wouldn't pay that much for a lamp now, let along in 1979. Every time I went to the mall, I would go in to Hallmark to see if it it was still there and if it went on sale. Hurray! It was reduced, but still way more what I could afford to pay. Finally, it was reduced again to I think around $75.00. The saleslady said it wouldn't be reduced any further. I finally, broke down and purchased it. I never regretted the splurge.
Over the years, whenever I moved, I wrapped her in bubble wrap, placed her in her own sturdy box surrounded in foam peanuts. I then carried her in my arms like a baby. I wouldn't trust my lamp to any movers.
I now have nothing in my house that's pink. Should I keep her in a box in the basement or in a closet or sell her on eBay. What if I should redecorate in pink again? I would kick myself if I got rid of my first inanimate love object. Just writing this now, I realized I never named her. How about Pinky? Have any of you named inanimate objects?
