Tickled Pink

Dear Helen Hartman,

I hope you can settle an argument between me and my friend.  I say there isn't anything better than finding a marvelous vintage anything at an amazing bargain price.  She says blah, blah, blah, blah blah... Okay, I don't know what she says because once I've said what I think I lose interest in the whole conversation and am only writing you because you are so wise and vintage savvy, I know you will be on my side. 
Once you agree with me I can wave your answer in her face and make her shut up. Bonus: More time talking for me!
                             Love for you to say I'm right

Dear (self) Loved One,

You are wrong.  Though I confess, I like the way you think (at least I suspect I do, I stopped reading after your keen observation about Helen being wise and savvy)
Actually, Helen finds many things in life 'better' than finding spectacular vintage bargains. For example, finding spectacular vintage bargains... in PINK!

And based on that each day this week was 'better' than the one before!
Viola! (That’s Helenese for ‘Lookie what  goodies I found for cheap’)
Not really old and not large, but a great price and just the right size for a sock monkey of my acquaintance to sit back and judge the other, non hand-stitched/hosiery-based stuffed animals in comfort.
Soap Dish Or Over the Sink Art? Haven't decided yet.
Not really a before, as I'd already cleaned it up, added rubber tips to the legs and used car wax to make it gleam, probably intended for something kitcheny this heavier than it looks piece.... 

became the perfect pink night stand for moi.

And the best pinky goodness of all this week 
- a great-niece born on March 31 - Emma Mabel, 6lbs 6 ozs
Welcome to the world little loved one, we adore you already.

  10. Thanks - and that night stand, never seen anything like it either, it's REALLY heavy, I guess so it won't tip over. Love it and got it for a song (the song was Here's some money give me that table!).

  12. I am your newest follower.....I love your blog and your style and sense of humor......Thanks for sharing so many wonderful pink objects....loving the pink baby scales. I own a scale almost like yours, but mine is white.....I feel a trip to HL coming on Monday to buy pink spray paint. I am a grandmother but a doll artist, too, and I weigh my new dolls on the scales as I register them on my website.
