When we had company staying with us recently, we went to one of the local restaurants, and our son joined us. Not one of us thought to take photos. Ah well! We had a lovely meal and a fun couple of hours. It was one of those days when we were all bundled up for the bitter cold, and glad to get inside.
As we got ready to leave the restaurant, in the foyer I saw movement on a shelf behind where the staff greet their customers. I had to look twice and on a ledge I saw a touch of the Islands. It was a lamp with a dancing hula girl, a bit of kitsch and a little out of place for the theme of this restaurant but I don't know, somehow she seemed to belong there. The electric motor inside really made that girl shake her hips. I loved it and as I was studying and chuckling and smiling at it with great interest, one of the young ladies said she had a postcard showing where I could buy the lamp if I would like one. I wasn't sure whether I would be, but you just never know and I accepted the postcard gratefully. There is a room upstairs I will be redecorating this spring. Yes I know, in my dreams!
I was already picturing in my mind the perfect spot where she would light up a dark corner of a room, and amuse anyone who sat down beside her. And then I went on line and saw the price, oh boy. Too much for me sad to say. Maybe if I was a good girl you think Santa would pop it in his sack for me for next Christmas? Yes, I am smiling again because I can hear him say ho, ho, ho, no, no, no, ho, ho, all the way from the North Pole. Here is the website if you want to take a look.
Happy Weekend to you all, and thanks for stopping by.
