Pink Saturday/Pink lamps and lights

It's time for another Pink Saturday, and this week I'm sharing some lamps. This first lamp looks antique, but it's not. I got it at a thrift shop for only $6. I thought it was much too pretty not to snatch up!



I have had this next lamp for so long that I don't even remember where I got it, but I know that it was not at all expensive and probably a Dollar General buy for less than $5. It's actually a tea light holder, and the light is so pretty shining through the open pattern on the shade.
Here are the pink flowers close up.

When I spied the pink ribbons on this lampshade, I just had to have them! They remind me of the pink ribbon campaign for breast cancer research.

This next isn't a light at all, but is a glucose meter in a pretty shade of pink! I am just blown away by the generosity of the blogging community. A blog friend who wishes to remain anonymous sent me this meter along with test strips and a medical necklace and bracelet. It's a wonderful gift that will help me on my way to better health. I met with a diabetes educator today, and she told me how often I need to test, so I have begun doing my finger sticks and testing. It's so fun that even a medical instrument can be pink!
To visist more blogs that are participating in Pink Saturday, please visit our hostess Bev at How Sweet the Sound.

I apologize for not getting out and making blog visits this week. I started facilitating a new group this week, and now I don't even get out of work until 7:00 p.m. twice a week. I wasn't online much on Wednesday, and wasn't on at all on Thursday. Since I have both boys at home now, I also have to fight to get my computer away from them every evening. I am strongly encouraging my son to get his own connection when he gets more work hours!


Hopefully I'll be able to catch up this weekend, but it sure is going to be pretty outside! Not sure how much time I'll be spending online. Have a great weekend!

I, too, am totally impressed at how sweet the blogging community is. This is a wonderful gift and I admire the lady that sent it to you.
Don;t worry about visiting bloggers...get outside and play, work, whatever you want to do. Remember, we will have a long, cold winter to do blog visiting.

Kady, Love the pink lamps. I love lamps and pretty shades! But I must say that I am impressed with the pink blood glucose monitor! I never would have thought they would ever make it pink. I had a diabetes scare this year. I don't have it but I need to be very careful! I am only 35 and need to start taking better care of myself. I wish you many blessing on your journey to better health! I look forward to seeing whatelse you post for PINK SATURDAY. hugs, Ellen

Those are pretty pink lamps! If you need any tips on diabetes, let me know. I've taken my A1C from 9 to 6.5 in eight months. It's all about diet and exercise. Two words that I don't like much but have to do as a diabetic.

Raxx - A day in the life said...

Hi Kady
So glad you are getting your exercise in, love your pink Saturday items, the lame with the bow is my favorite!!

Hey i forgive you for not being around much, I miss you, but I can visit you here!

Have a great weekend!!

Hello Kady,
Love the pink lamps.
Happy Pink Saturday,
Love, Ann

jeanne said...

Hello Kady, my visiting has been more limited too. My cousin is visiting and she does not do computers. I feel rude if I am on mine when she is here. I love your pink treasures you shared. The pink meter is something.

I hope your diabetes is under control. Two of my sisters have it and I am always watching what I eat because my chances are high to get it too. sigh.

Hugs...Jeanne

Stephanie said...

Stephanie

Patty said...

I have a lamp shade like that. The pink ribbon got me too. I've had diabetes for so long that I remember when glucose meters came only in gray or black. So boring. That pink one is very cool.

Green Girl in Wisconsin said...

How neat about your new glucose meter! Those flowers look like frosting on a cake--I'd be tempted to drag my finger across them!

dana said...

Love your lamps! What a great gift from your blogging friend! My time for blogging is hard to come by, too, as this is my busy time of year for the next 3 months.
YOU are entered in the Pink Sat. Starter Kit giveaway! Good Luck! Dana

I just love your lamps, and so glad that you got the meter. That's wonderful. BTW...I know all about having to take turns on a computer....me with my two boys 17 and 11 and then there's hubby too. Sometimes it's hard to get a turn. LOL! Have a great week sweetie!
xoxo,
Queenie!
