Fashion Lampshade Cover
Thursday while out shopping for clothes with my daughter Cherise for her birthday, I was stopped in my tracks as I zero-ed in on all the frilly, ruffled and lacey skirts and blouses out in the mall right now. I've always noticed how fashion and decorating trends seem to coincide with each other but this time it really hit me as I took in all the racks and rows of pretty clothes. Then one skirt imparticular kept speaking to me, it was the softest mocha pink color with tiers of whispy ruffles . I just was so attracted to it, and I knew that I would not be caught dead wearing it, but I had to have it! Then the idea came to me to make a lampshade cover out of it. The cost was only 15.00 dollors and I could not have been more excited to get home and put it on my lamp and decorate it with a rose like an old prom dress.
I'm a mother of 2 beautiful children , Cherise and AJ, whom are the loves of my life. I have 2 dogs that I adore, Jack and Jade. My creative passions are painting roses and decorating. I recently moved from a charming 1920's beach cottage to a very large home in the country, my "Chateau de Fleurs" where I now have a studio/shop in my home and also host a vintage marketplace every 3 months.
