--has annoyed me lately every time I've looked at it, and before I'd even realized that yesterday was Lampshade Re-Do Day, I found myself pulling it up from its base and peeling off the first of what soon seemed like five hundred buttons.
All but the top ring of buttons is gone. The bottom four tiers of ruffled fabric pieces are almost all in place now. Pink roses fabric, green gingham fabric, and I-don't-know-yet-what-other fabric will make the top few ruffles. And maybe ball-trim around the bottom. Ideally, by Sunday night, a finished lampshade will again be atop the base of my reading lamp, the layers of fabric softening the light more than buttons-on-white-canvas ever could and the rainbow of colors and patterns cozy-ing-up its corner of my bedroom.
