The little things.

Do you have a running list of little things that bug you in your house? Stuff that you always mean to take care of, but almost never get around to? I do, and today I actually crossed something off that list. There’s been an ill-fitting shade on this lamp on our console table  for like ever.


Luckily I found a new shade whilst perusing my Local TJ Maxx. On serious clearance.



The proportion of this shade is much better. It’s a subtle difference, but it makes me so happy. Not bad for a $10 thrift store lamp!

Other exciting but mundane things from today – I renewed my license at the dmv in less than 30 minutes (I even got a decent picture!), did 3 loads of laundry, actually remembered to pick my prescription on time, and cleaned out the fridge. Take that boring tuesday!


ps. here’s a great source for lamp shades online.

  1. Thanks for the shades link! I have a lamp (on my little things list) that’s been hiding in the closet naked for some time and have found my local stores to be less-than-adequate when it comes to selection. As you’ve demonstrated here, the correct proportion makes all the difference!

  2. I’m in violation of several lamp “little things”. And yes, it drives me craaazzzy even though I don’t really talk about it. I have no idea how to fix them though because my lamps are so old. I think I need you to come over and do a lamp shade intervention. Help!
