Simple Lamp Shade Cover & A Sweet Find

One morning last week, I awoke at 3:30 AM, wide awake, so I got up.  I had laid a tiny scrap of fabric that I had left over from the two curtain panels, I showed you here.  I had laid on the dining table, and as I went to move it, I thought about what that tiny scrap could be used for.  I went into my sewing room, to put it away, and there was another small scrap.  Sewn together, they might make a small lamp shade cover.  I sewed them together, and used binding from my stash as a hem because there was so little fabric.  I sewed elastic around the top part, pinned on a bow from grosgrain ribbon, and here is the final product.

This literally took only 10 minutes or less.

On my most recent trip to the Hen's Nest Consignment, I found this wonderful crate.  It could be used for so many different things.  They had dishes stacked in it.  It would make a lovely holder for extra towels in the guest bath, but right now, it sits under the end table near "my spot", and holds a few of my home decor books.  When I tire of these particular books, I have about 40 more to switch out.  I think it is so nice, and will be a versatile piece to use throughout the house.

How would you use this crate?
