Pink Saturday


I have had this little lamp pretty much my entire life. Growing up I always shared a room with one of my 3 sisters this lamp was always in our bedroom. Somehow (teehee) when I got married and moved out this lamp came with me. Originally the shade was taller and more cylindrical like a top hat and had white pompom fringe around the base, I replaced it with this one a while back. I have always loved this lamp it's been witness to love notes, friendships, tears, laughter, fights, fears, every Nancy Drew book read and every dream I ever had. I have no idea where my mom got it, but I am oh so glad she did. It's home for the last 5 years has been in my lavender painted spare bedroom.
