I Scored at the Thrift Store – Pretty in Pink

It starts at birth.

Boys in baby blue and girls in bubblegum pink.

I’ve long since moved on from pink …

until I saw this brassy beauty beckoning to me.

She was a cheap date too so I took her home to shed some light on my desk.

Now she gossips with the pink glitter and this pink gal about the latest fashions, manicures, diets and boys who pass by on the sidewalk.

As long as she doesn’t wolf whistle out the window, I’ll keep her around.

I have plans for her shade too so stay tuned.

What about you – would you ever put anything pink in your house?

  11. Great score, I covet Cranberry Glass. I am always searching for it
    on line and in Thrift Stores!

  12. OH she’s a beauty…and looks perfect there! Great find!

  13. Beautiful! Can’t wait to see what you do with the shade!

  14. At one time, I had lots of pink in our home but not anymore. I do have a few favorite things packed up or I handed them off to my mom. She loves pink, especially the shabby chic cottagey style! I, do however, LOVE the lamp and would have found a place for it!!!

  15. It looks great! Yes, I would put pink in my house. Not a lot, but I have burgundy so it sorta works with it. And I’m a huge ‘pink ribbon’ supporter so I have a bunch of pink things. Might be an idea to get them out of the closet and put them out for more than just October.

  16. Love, love, love!!!!

  17. Great score Kelly! I do have some pink items but they are stored away…might be time to get them out!

  18. Oh yes! She is sassy and perfect. I’m so glad you rescued her!

  19. A perfect February post. No pink here…all boys except me. Oh and one female cat named Kitty Perry.

  20. Love this lamp – seriously!! I have collected a few of these glass globe lamps and… I almost hate to say it… I’ve taken them apart and made garden decorations out of the glass. It looks lovely (really, it does!) but – the cranberry glass on this one and the finish of the base are really perfect here. I don’t think I would have taken this one apart!

  21. Awesome find…yes I have pink in a couple of rooms, my craft room and my soon to be finished guest bedroom. I think you’re right we’re born with it in our blood, maybe some not full blown, but little touches! What gal wouldn’t love a dozen pink roses… just sayin’

  22. Oh my goodness! I absolutely LOVE this lamp! It’s gorgeous!

  23. So pretty — easy to see why you couldn’t pass it by!

  24. Absolutely! I have a lot of pink items in my home, including a glass lamp that I found thrifting too! It’s on my desk as well. I don’t think I would ever do an entirely pink room, other than one for a little girl, but I love pink and use it as accents in many areas. Thanks for sharing all of your thrift finds! Hugs, Leena

  25. I love the idea of posting your finds on your blog! I love the lamp! It is so unique. If it was the right piece, I would put it almost any color in my house except maybe the olive green, orange and mustard yellow of the 70′s. I am sorry but I think that decor scarred me for life lol. However, again it is beautiful.
