I must own one. Yes. I must.
I hope you enjoyed my vintage wishes (and seriously -- vintage tins? I'm all over that with cash money -- I have a cabinet full of them, looking just like I opened an old soup kitchen in my office) and maybe one day, I'll find that pink typewriter, or that cabin in Maine where I'll write the Great American Novel, or have an occasion and a dress that calls for a glitzy glam collar, or go back to the good old telephones that you actually DIALED.
Sweet dreams, everyone -- I'm off to my vintage-pretender of a tub.
(That's my actual tub, by the way! The only thing I asked for during our entire home renovation.)
