Dakotas Room:Such a simple idea. Cut strips from scrap paper and glue them onto the shade (use an old rice lantern). Looks expensive but it is not! Great to reuse old scrap paper and old paper lanterns.
Another version on rain gutter gardening. Want to grow a salad garden but have no room? Try gutters! Affix them to a fence, slope them for drainage, and voila! Of course,for this I'd need a backyard wider than a hallway.
