Ruffles Light My Life

Ruffles Light My Life.
I have a couple of old lamps
that I need to make some
ruffled shades for so I went
looking for inspiration.
and it includes DIY directions.
Just click on the image to go there.
Not only is that one pretty but I
love the turquoise lamp under it.
Not a fan of turquoise?
Can't imagine - but- if you're not
how about this one?
I love pink no matter what color it is.
That's a joke.
Feel free to laugh.

Don't like turquoise OR pink?
How about this one?
More demure, don't you think?
I think I am somewhere in between
all of those.
I have one of these from my grandmother.
It is on a hobnail milkglass lamp
from the 1950's.
I'll let you know how my lampshade
turns out.
In between projects you can 
find me in one of these.

Ruffles Too Pretty To Eat

I don't think I could bear
to cut into this cake to eat it,
could you?
Wouldn't those be perfect
in this setting?
I think I need to dress appropriately
for this, don't you?
I think they would notice me in this!
And after a wonderful day
I would love to crawl home
and sleep here.

I Promise You Pretty

I have been following some beautiful
blogs for a couple of years,
quietly and in the background.
I have finally
decided to start my own.
Here are some of my inspirations
to starting a blog.
Laurie-Heaven's Walk
who shows us beautiful things like this.
And Bella's Rose Cottage
where she showcases her beautiful gardens

Also, Courtney at French Country Cottage
has inspired me beyond belief
with images like these.

I will be sharing more and more
of the beauty I see around me
in the upcoming weeks and months.
I am happy to be finally taking 
this big blogging step.

The blog that started it all for me was
Sandy's Shabby Streamside Studio
