I am ok admitting that the lamp I bought a while back was a bit shabby.
And now I am ok admitting that the lamp I bought a while back is AWESOME. Last weekend during my Saturday romp around Target I noticed a clearance on some early spring Threshold items. Like a full moon with shooting stars, a chocolate Easter bunny on Easter morning, a full stocking of Swedish Fish at Christmas the perfect lamp shade was on clearance. Just for me. No one else. $14 later it was in my car on it's way home to meet its new base.
Suddenly my $4 yellow lamp turned into a $40 yellow lamp.
