Among my Christmas presents was Romantic Prairie Style, a timely wake-up call that I make insufficient use of garden furniture indoors and fail to display flowers in my wellington boots. All that is going to change. The first major sweep of prairie-channeling round here will be the lamps. They need covering.

For a self-deluding instant, I was all set to make one myself. I even watched a How To and opened my fabric drawer. Then it struck me that a daughter's outgrown tennis skirt would be just the thing. You merely fling it over the existing lampshade and tweak it just so for instant prairie chic. No tradesmen, no mess, no wiring. Nifty, no?
