Happy Pink Saturday

My Pink Saturday entry is an oil burning lamp that was given to me by my mom. She in turn received it from her mom. I'm not sure how old this is but I do know that my mom says she remembers my grandmother having it for a very long time. In fact, I'm pretty sure my grandma bought it at an antique store. One memory I have of this lamp is when I was about 3 or 4 years old. I was touching things I knew I shouldn't and sure enough, the hurricane top broke. Since then it has had many different glass tops. The base has been through so many moves I am not about to count, and has never cracked or broke.

That lamp might be sturdier than you suspect. Globes? Unfortunately not. Thanks for sharing your beautiful lamp. It's a treasure.

All the best, Lana

Happy Pink Saturday, Syndee.

Your oil lamp is such a wonderful and beautiful treasure. Do you ever light it?

Yes I've been known to light it every now and then. It has come in handy when we have had power outages.
