Study lamp & books.

It's been a long week... Felt like my body collapsed on friday evening. Was like my brain said to my body: "Oooh, spring vacation!!! Sunshine, sunblock, BBQ at the beach, finish my projects/work, socializing, fun-fun-fun!!!" ...& my body replied with *shutting down*. xD Haha! 
BUT! I managed to finish one of my lamp projects before completely collapsing. :) Wasn't that much to do really. Just had to get off the awful blue-green'ish smelly fabric that was on it & replace it with something else. It was going in my son's room, as a study lamp. Sooo I wasn't allowed to make it too feminine. :p It was only I took a piece of plastic from an old IKEA lamp I had, just to 'fireproof' the inside. Then I took a sheet from a gigantic atlas I bought a while back & glued it on the outside of the plastic. Then fixed the whole thing inside the lamp screen thingy. Not my best job, but hey - I was dead tired! ;p

Dismantled on my desk... ;)

On my son's desk...waaaiting for some action in the homework department. 

BTW, this thursday I was at a presentation of this book: the author herself: Ellen Dyrop, at Fretex in Moss. I'd already read her new book, but it was fun to hear her talk about the local places some of the pictures was from. A friend of mine made it there the nick of time. She's been looking for some ideas for her patio & garden, so she got quite excited. Especially about a pallet that was used as a shelf. :D That really made me happyyy! Cause it's cheap fixes. You don't have to pay a fortune, it can look just the way you want it to. Just a lick of paint & voila, instant gratification...or at least for how long it takes the paint to dry. ;) But best of all - it's really green living! 

I've said it before & I'll say it again: I redesign!

Have to crawl back into bed now...

Gardening is about enjoying the smell of things growing in the soil, getting dirty without feeling guilty, and generally taking the time to soak up a little peace and serenity.  ~Lindley Karstens.
