Do you see my problem? Look closely.
Here's another shot, taken at night, with the lamp turned on. See the problem now?
I'll turn the shade around so the problem is right in front. Yes, it's a hole in my lampshade! I have no idea how it got there. One day I noticed it. I've had two of these lamps forever. So, I set out to replace the shades. It seems to be an awkward size because I can find larger shades, and I can find smaller ones, but none that quite look right.
After looking for months--yes, months--I stumbled upon a solution. New lamps! I found two of these at Kirkland's on sale for $12.99 each.
Now my problem is, what do I do with the old lamps? Just toss them? Save the seashells? Any creative ideas, Blogland?
