The Pink Pimpernell

June 22, 2010

I’ve mentioned before that I am in love, right?  Right.  For a long time now I’ve had my eye on the Pink Royal Typewriter from the 1950’s.  I’ve bid on several on ebay but with little luck (those auctions get fierce!)  My friend Amylouwho told me that this typewriter is my own Pink Pimpernell.  I lost a bid just last week that I was really hoping to win.  It was kind of a pet dream of mine to have my own pink typewriter to celebrate pink week.  [Enter crashing of dreams here.]  When I talked to Stan The Typewriter Man last week he told me that he would find me one.  He said it might take a while, but that he would find it and clean it up and make sure it worked.  Until then…

They seek her here.

They seek her there.

That pinksuedeshoe seeks her everywhere.

Is she in heaven?

Or is she on ebay?

Le’sigh, that elusive Pimpernell.

One day soon I’ll have my own Pink Pimpernell.  And until then I’m going to really enjoy looking at photo’s and searching ebay and etsy and thrift stores (Now that would be a miracle!) and dream about that day when she’ll be mine.

[ I love this image.  Like a lot. ]

    I’ll keep a look-out. Maybe all of the pink pimpernells are hiding up here in Canada.
