lamp shades make overs


Easy  way to save a dull lamp shade. My favorite.

I had this pretty lamp base. I painted it with acrylic white painted and added the checked ruffle.

This is prettier then the picture shows. It is silk flower petals. The bottom row are white and pink. Blue and gold ribbons on the top

Blue and yellow butterfles adorn this shade with added prisms and pink cording.this is in my bedroom.


I have this lamp shade but am pondering over adding anything. Give me an opinion  what you would do.




Another shade . It is shoddy and dirty.will be doing soon

I like the base .
The shade is on an antique base.

Just another make over. Pink satin ribbon and flower bouquet on top. It is in my Victorian bedroom.

my new projects

i have not been blogging for a long while as some of you know. I had a major complicated operation and was hospitalized for over 4 months. I hope to be back  soon. This is a few pictures of my projects I have been making . No comments just enjoy. I was making these for a future craft show. They are mostly handmade and then embellished to make them more beautiful. The candles ,goblets and metal or ceramic are not.

Just one more Easter tablescape.

My forsythia bush just in time for Easter.
Living room coffee table.  Just learning about blogging.  A long way to go.  I use a cannon digital camera so use what you have lol Always like to add a few birdies.
A few extra pictures around the house.Breakfast room
I used my pretty spring time dishes asthe colors match the Easter theme.Napkin holders are little duckies.  So cute.  Acyrlic clear handle silverware. Napkins with blue stencil look. Clear glass salad plate so pattern of plate shows through. Napkin on wrong side lol.Little chick on plate.
My cabinet buffet with Easter tree,vase with Easter eggs.Although this is a childrens adaptation of Easter we remember the reason for the holiday.  That Christ died for us to save us from our original sin and rose form the dead  to show  his love for us.
I have many cute bunnies I actually keep out most of the year. This one is my favorite ceramic one.  He usually spends his time in down stairs bath with many more.  He sits among a bowl of fruit and ivy.
A peek at last years table scape before I was a blogger. Most of my finds are from dollar tree thrift stores and garage sales. MY children are adults with grown up children and I spend Easter with my son and family.Bunnie is a salt shaker and sucker shape of an Easter egg. I used Easter egg paper doily between plates.

This is a silver plate child's tea set. My neighbor had a sale. It needed polishing. She sold it for 3.00. It is not old but I love it.  It has an engraved design on the bottom of tray. Very  fancy edging.My daughter and I spent the day yard saleing and got lucky. I can't wait hehe to use set on a kid's corner tablescape.
