I want to thank Lori "Katie's Rose Cottage and Rebecca "A Gathering of Thoughts" for my new lamp shade. Lori showed her new lamp shade last week, made from a tutorial that Rebecca gave us. I loved her lamp shade and went to see Rebecca's tutorial and thought I would make me one. It turned out so good and was very easy to do. You must all try this if you have some lamp shades that need dressing up. I covered the background with an old curtain that I had tea dyed. In fact I tea dyed all the lace that I used on the shade. The trim is some flat lace I have and the front ornament came off an old wedding dress. I also tea dyed some white fringe.

Don't you just love the vintage look of the lace and trims?

Here it is with a light bulb in it. All lite up to go to the mall for sale. I am putting some of my things in the Lone Star Antique Mall. One of my friends has a booth that she is sharing. The scarf that the lamp is sitting on will be in my Etsy today.

And I would like to remind everyone that my giveaway will end at Midnight tonight. Come on over and leave a comment and become a follower and you just might win. I will be drawing a winner Friday night. Good luck, some lucky person will receive my box full of treasures. It just might be YOU!!!
Hope all of you have a wonderful day!!!

Your lamp turned out beautifully. I am on the roam for lampshades that could need a redo.

Good luck with your things at the Antique Market.

Of course I have a few shades that could use a new dressing. Love the way the lace looks with the lamp on.
And please, please add my name to the list of those hoping to win your gathering of goodies.
Also, I will be heading for Dallas (my son's QUAKECON) is Aug 11-14. Need to see if you and Charlene can meet up with me. Will be at the Hilton Anatole. How far is that from you?
Will be in touch and hope to see you two soon.
