Lovely Little Lamp

I have two lamps that I bought from Target about 6 or 7 years ago. They were both white with white lampshades. Ho hum...So I painted both of them turquoise and sanded them here and there.

I really liked the color of the lamps, but still wanted to do something with those shades.

So, I decided to cover one of the shades with my "blossoms" and see how it looked. I used a white bedsheet that had recently ripped and hot glued the "blossoms" on.

After attaching the first few, I was in love!

It took many hours, but one is done.
My lovely little lamp.
Now to muster up the energy to do the other....

Here's to the Weekend..

Here's to the weekend.
Fun times, good friends and great food.
The kind that makes you smile...

(don't ya just love when your food smiles back at you? This is what I found in the pot after I dumped out our "sghetti")

This is some of what I've been up to lately.
All new items listed in my etsy shop.

I don't have time to put up the links to all these,

but you'll find them there.

I've also been taking care of this sweet baby who got neutered yesterday.

Poor pitiful pup.

Can you tell he is NOT happy about wearing an e-collar?

Hope your week is going well...

This is a custom order I just finished for a frog lovin' FL lady's birthday. It's one of my favorites. Each piece was hand cut with scissors. I hope she likes it as much as I do.

We're relocating next month (same city, new house) so I'm between packing, finishing orders, homeschooling, planting a church, and staying sane.

And for those who always think my house is spotless and like to call me Martha Stewart, this one's for you:
