tick, tick, ticking
i am one of those folks who has lots of design "loose ends". for example, lamp shades...a very hard task to fulfill as resources are limited and size really makes a difference. i cannot tell you how many shades i have purchased and brought home, with a quick trip back for a return. after a good 5+ years, i am 75% set for life on shades and the balance 25% keep me honest and living in the real world. good ones are an investment.
well, my good friend pam at red ticking always, can i say always has the best shades in stock this side of the mississippi. on my last visit to seattle i had a ticking moment when i saw this shade and as soon as i returned to sf the tick, tick on the clock was loud and clear and i knew if i didn't take the plunge, this shade would vanish into somebody else's hands.
the ship, or should i say shade, came in yesterday and i couldn't get out of the office fast enough to ensure it was in fact, the write fit for the lamp and the room.
could the little cross stitch initials be any more primitive and simple?
