Above right - an Ikea lamp and a string balloon (that the wee one made last November) hastily put together yesterday in a collaborative mother-daughter (ahem) interior design exercise.
The initial plan for the string balloon was to turn it into a bowl for Xmas decorations, sweets or something. But it turned out that we were NOT allowed to cut it up, so we've had a "decoration" kicking about the house since then. For some reason, she agreed to the lamp idea yesterday.
Her new lamp isn't exactly pretty, but at least we're no longer tripping over the "decoration" on the loungeroom floor.
