I took a dress back to TJ & Max and got a store credit. Found this lamp on the clearance table for even more off the price. Loved it and since I don't have any original thoughts, I had seen a number of things decorated with the lyrics to one of my favorite songs, "You are my sunshine". So I took the linen type shade and a permanent marker and printed the words on the shade. I have loads of buttons in a jar in my sewing room so I added some color with various buttons. The word love looks like a botch but really it is a heart shaped metal button I found in the jar. I love it the look.
