    You are like your big sister. You care for your older sister more than yourself. You have a heart and you care. Someday maybe your little sister will grow up and give you the lamp.

    I have a feeling that you will find a featherweight. One with the scrolls on it, when the time is right.

    Oh ...I hope you can find the perfect one!

    Did you point blank ask your little sister for the lamp? Maybe it would help if you told her nicely (again?) that it was promised to you.

    But otherwise...just let it go. Some relatives are "like that". I've been told that after parents' death, often the "true character" comes out of some people and shows them for what they are. I think you aren't the only one with this type of problem when divvying up the inheritance.

I have to say that my mom had just given a Tiffany lamp that I had wanted for 35 years (and been told all those years was mine) to my little sister who knew it had been promised to me earlier and took it anyway. My big sister wanted the Featherweight but wouldn't say so. I told her I didn't want her to feel what I was feeling and if she wanted it to say so. She finally admitted she would love to have it. I gave it to her joyfully. She had always wanted and loved it, I only found out about it (realized my mom's machine was a Featherweight) a couple of years ago. I can always buy a new one, she can't replace the memories. The search begins! And I am looking for one with the pretty scrolled face, not the straight lines like Mama's.
    Your spot in heaven is saved.
