Shabby Pink Lamp Rescue!
Happy Pink Saturday! I have been out garage saleing this morning so I am posting a bit later than usual! I am in the business of junk hauling  treasure hunting so when I get bored of things I just switch them out for something new that I have found. I have a darling shabby pink lamp that I tried to take into my booth and then my son said "mommy no you cannot sell this lamp, you are taking away all of our memories".  I told him, " honey we can't keep everything. " The next day guilt set in and I hurried back to my booth to pull out our oh so sweet shabby "memory" lamp.

I found this little beauty in the off season at a flea market and painted its base white. The shade is a light pink and it casts the prettiest glow at night. Funny what little things create memories in our childrens minds...I had no idea my son really noticed the lamps and such. My family goes along with all of my shabbying of the house and they must enjoy it more than I thought~ Giggle

These are my little memory makers...
(my little guy in the center is the one who "missed the lamp")

Well, my memory makers and house need my attention! Have a lovely pink Saturday and a blessed Sunday! Big squishy hugs to Beverely at http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/my_weblog/ for letting all of us pinkies get together!
Hugs,
Olivia

  5. That is so sweet and I am happy that you pulled it out. Maybe one day he will let it go, but there is nothing worse that regret that something is gone forever. Happy Pink Saturday Olivia, Char

  7. What a sweet story! I love the fact that it was a little one who "missed" his lamp. Isn't it funny what they miss? You think they won't notice or will love the new item and then wham, they shock you with "I miss..."

    Happy Pink Saturday...

    XO,

  10. That's so cute that your little one didn't want to sell the lamp. It's always amazed me through the years, the things that my kids remember...like the funny plastic cup with the animal on it and not the birthday party with twenty seven year old boys ( with water guns)!

  12. HAPPY PINK SATURDAY OLIVIA,
    WHAT IS THE PHRASE THEY SAY...OUT OF THE MOUTH OF BABES...
    I THINK THE LAMP PUTS OUT THAT WARM GLOW OF LOVE YOU NUTURE YOUR FAMILY WITH AND WHEN HE LOOKS AT THE MEMORY LAMP IT MAKES HIM FEEL SO VERY HAPPY INSIDE. HE IS GOING TO BE THE SENTIMENTAL ONE.
    YOU AND YOUR FAMILY ARE JUST BEAUTIFUL.
    I LOVE THE PICTURE WITH THE ONLY COLOR BEING YOUR DAUGHTERS HAIR RIBBON.
    HAPPY FATHERS DAY WEEK END
    ANGEL HUGS AND BLESSINGS SWEET LADY

  21. What a sweet little guy! I'm sentimental like that too so you tell him that I understand. For the record, I like the lamp and would've have opted to keep it too.
