Vamp a Lamp for Fall

Want a quick way to add a little Halloween fun to a your life? You've got time. 
Trust me, it'll take 5 minutes.
Grab a lampshade, some straight pins, and the seasonal fun trim of your choice.
 
Flip the shade over.
Carefully pin the ribbon part of the trim, sliding the pin into the hem around the wire shade form so it won't show in the front.
Put the shade back on the lamp.
What? That was the whole tutorial.
The skill level of this project: Me Before Coffee
And no, it's NOT too early to do this! September 19th is 
Get your Jolly Roger on in fine form and have a little fun with it!
Just don't let the kids call you "wench." It sets a bad precedent.

Trust me.

You always have a 'trick' and a 'treat' up your sleeve.

Hey Sunny - I just updated my blog post about it, but I wanted to say that switching to a domain name didn't require any work actually. I just bought the domain from Google (a fast process), and they took care of the rest. Highly recommend it! It's only $10 too.

Wow, that's too cute! ...as for it being too early, remember that it's never too early to prepare for holidays in the blogosphere ;).
