Our entire family was hanging out in our theater room on Sunday. It was a cooler evening, so we had the windows open. A storm was brewing, and it was pretty windy. We heard a thud. “What was that?”, I asked? “Probably a lamp.”, Ben said. I went upstairs to check it out. Sure enough, it was a lamp. It was so windy that the curtain blew up and knocked the lamp off the table. Fortunately, it wasn’t damaged, or so I thought. The shade was just fine and the top side of the lamp seemed okay, too. Then I put it on the table and saw this:
If you recall, I bought these lamps a few months ago at T.J. Maxx. I didn’t think they would have more, because of course, T.J. Maxx carries a few of each item. Off to T.J. Maxx I went, looking for replacement lamps. When I’m looking for something and willing to spend money, I can never find something that I want, but when I’m just browsing, I find about 1 million things I want, but wasn’t looking for. Needless to say, I didn’t find anything I wanted. I guess we’ll try to fix this one. Keep your eyes peeled to see if our idea works or not.

Oh sad! We recently had a small honey jar fall on my grandmother’s garlic keeper, and Robert fixed it with epoxy. I don’t think that would work very well with this lamp, but here’s hoping your idea works! At least it looks like this is on the back? Although that probably doesn’t matter as far as stability goes.
That’s good you were able to fix the garlic keeper! This is on the back, but it is pretty bad. We still have to try to fix it. We’ve been a little busy with other projects…
