I have a "thing" for pink.
I also have a "thing" for pink and chippy.
Put them together
So, when I wandered by this adorable vintage table at the antique market last month,
I stopped mid-stride.
(If you've ever shopped with me, you know that I do that quite often.)
Causing people behind me ram into each other like dominoes because of my sudden stops
is a very normal occurrence in my life ~
especially when treasure hunting.
(Unless, of course, I'm diving headfirst toward something, and that's whole 'nother story.)
As I deliriously walked around and around this little, pink chippy sweetness,
she was singing my name ~ loud and clear.
She needed me and I needed her.
We were meant to be together.
I needed to see that perfect chippiness in Heaven's Walk.
So, while the throng of scattered people behind me picked themselves up off the ground...
(Hmmm...I can see this as a great diversion tactic in the future....)
I decided that I just had to take her home with me
(despite the fact of some unsuccessful bartering.)
She was covered haphazardly in original chipped, distressed layers of a delicious pale pink and creamy white
over a layer of vintage green.
She had knots, cracks, worn corners, and splits.
Perfect imperfection in my world.
Upon my arrival at home, and after giving her a good scrubbing,
I lugged the round, grey wicker table...
(see her there in the corner?)
out to a new home on the front porch.
and introduced Little Prairie Pink Table to her new one.
She looked like she had always belonged there.
When I placed the vintage rose pitcher on her
(that also found a new home with me),
and filled it with stock in the most beautiful pale lavender color ~
a soft, quiet vignette bloomed in front of me.

Can you spell L.O.V.E....?
I love you,
sweet little chippy pink table.
