Once again I'm participating in Vintage Thingie Thursday! If you would like to participate, visit Confessions of an Apron Queen! and join us. I love to see your vintage stuff!
I have some treasures I haven't had a chance to unpack since moving to Texas last year, but this week I'm mixing it up a bit with something that isn't an antique, but it's vintage to me. Others might think it's a bit goofy, but I love it. My middle daughter gave it to me for Christmas twenty years ago. She knew I would love it and I do.
That's right, it's Alf! or The Alfonator!
I apologize for the classy shade, which is a cheap plastic mixing bowl. It will have to do for the purpose of pictures...hopefully it doesn't take away from the perfect image of the character himself....The Alf. By the way if the bowl looks familiar, it's because my astronaut wore it too.
The lamp has markings like a real antique...sort of. It was made under copyright by Alien Productions, 1988.
Does anyone know if Alf ever caught that cat on the show? And why on earth was Alf cancelled? I was surprised and pleased to see Alf on the Fox New Network, being interviewed by Bill O'Reilly. It was nice to see Alf's intellectual side.
So there you have it....my vintage Alf Lamp.....Long live Alf!
