I just wanted to show you this lampshade that I embellished with this gorgeous silky rose and some velvet vintage ribbon. When I found this floor lamp, it was dark brown and the shade was a deep red. I found a replacement shade at a yard sale the next day that fit perfectly, but it was too plain and blah after I had painted the base of the lamp with Old White.
I learned how to make this rose from Carol at The Polka Dot Closet. I love Carol's blog and I absolutely love this rose that she did a wonderful tutorial on. You can find the instructions to make these here.
You can see how beautiful this soft romantic lamp looks among rustic and primitive items. I just love the look.
I also wanted to share these gorgeous signs I found at a flea market this weekend. They are about 4 feet tall and they were movie props. I wish I knew which movie they starred in. Wouldn't they make great shutters?
One last thing before I leave you today. This weekend is the monthly warehouse sale for the Little French Flea Market. We'll be open Thursday through Sunday from 9:00 to 4:00. If you're in the area, please come and see us.
Thanks for stopping by.
