    The Lamp Revamp

    Wednesday, January 26, 2011

    Once upon a time there was a sweet little lamp from IKEA.

    It had a special place of honor upon the scallywags book case in Japan, a very good place to be. Unfortunately the little lamp was sad. It wanted to fit in in its new home, to feel youthful and bright.

    Her heart going out to the little lamp, the Lady of the House found a lovely fabric that suited both the scallywag's room, and the little lamp's needs.

    Working late into the night and with careful hands, the Lady of the House tenderly wrapped the little lamps' shade in its new covering, gently and slowly, pleating and tucking the fabric along the way.

    After a while, the Lady sat back and inspected her work. The lamp shook in excited anticipation, then lit up brilliantly upon seeing its transformation.

    For now longer was it simply a lamp from IKEA.

    Now, it fully belonged to the little boy...

    And the lamp was happy.

    The End.
