Here it is Pink Saturday once again. Today my pink offering is my fruit bowl in our kitchen.
I've had this bowl for more than ten years. I don't remember exactly how long, but I do remember where and when I first saw it. I saw it at a consignment shop a few miles from where I live. I had been wanting a pink fruit bowl for a long time, but had not found one that was large enough. The day I saw this bowl, it was love at first sight. Until I saw the price tag. I can't remember how much it was marked, or how much I paid, but whatever, it was worth it.
The funny thing is that I was so bothered by the price when I first saw it that I left it in the store and came home. Being the nut case that I am, I didn't sleep well thinking about this bowl. I had to work the next day, so I asked my mother to go in there and buy the bowl. And, we've lived happily ever after since our union.
This bowl stays on our kitchen counter all the time, and you will always find it filled with fruit. Some of the fruits might vary, but there will always be bananas and limes. At our house we live by the adage of "a banana a day keeps the doctor away", and I always must have my limes. I love limes.
Today we have other lovers of pink joining us for Pink Saturday. Last week was the first week I had people joining me for Pink Saturday, and we had two participants.
