week end project

...i love the ideas i find on other blogs...
...and thanks to Make Mine Beautiful...
...i found this lovely idea of prettying up a common, ordinary lamp shade...
...isn't this simply cute?
...i would never have thought of taking advantage of the seam and using it!
...and this dressmaker detail?
...j.u.s.t.s.i.m.p.l.y cute!
...so i got my collection of buttons...
 (that came from years of taking off of worn out clothes)

...my collection of laces...
...found cheap shades from lowes...
 
...and started dressing 'em up...
...i used this glue from wal-mart...
...and because i needed to do six shades, i kept it simple...
...earlier, i had tried pom poms...
...and after living with that for several weeks...
...nah!
...much better!
...i added the crystals, booty from a yard sale...
...but only have three, so i alternated 'em on the chandelier...
...maybe, just maybe, i'll find three more sometime!
...any hoo...
...it was a fun, simple and quick project...

...blessedness!

Oh Esther!! What a NEAT idea....I like the 2nd one much better! It's really nice taking the writing class with you, it's wonderful isn't it? It's a good thing.
My Mom is here and we're just "oohing" and "ahhhing" over your blog, your ideas, the beauty that you surround yourself with.
Looking forward to next Tuesday.
And let's do tea sometime this Spring or Summer!!
