White Wednesday

http://fadedcharmcottage.blogspot.com/2010/07/white-wednesday-56.htmlI don't think I have shared this lampshade I made from either Romantic Country, or Romantic Homes Magazine.  They took the actual shade fabric off of theirs, but, I chose not to..It is embellished with lots of blue and white toole wrapped around the shade and tied, satin ribbon wrapped and tied, vintage lace, also wrapped and tied, small blue roses tied on with more vintage lace, a couple of flower brooches just pinned on and a butterfly clip.  It was designed to slip photos in between the lace and toole. 
What it looks like on and off.

I will be trying to link to White Wednesday!! 


  1. How beautiful your lampshade looks. I love the ribbon idea. Very pretty. Not sure I would put photos in it because it's too pretty just the way it is.


  2. I so love it when someone just does their own thing. So very pretty with your ribbons and roses.


  3. Your lampshade looks fabulous! I'd be proud to have this in my own home! :-)


  4. I was just thinking maybe someone needs to blog about keeping a Clarence a bigger secret.....ha ha ha!!! That way we'll stay out of trouble!

  5. Hey lady... haven't seen your face in a bit, so I thought I'd pop on over and check on you! :) We just got back from a 10 day vacation and boy oh boy did my soul need it! I've been posting pics. I only have the first set up, then had to wait to get through treasures and trinkets thursday before I can post the rest. :) We went to Charleston, SC...wow what a lovely place! :)
    Hope all is well with you my dear!

  6. Hey Rhonda, I love your lampshade. You visited my blog and asked where I got my French bottle drying rack-- I ordered it from LaurieAnna's Vintage Home Shoppe. There is a link on my sidebar to her blog which leads to her shoppe. Go visit-you'll LOVE her stuff!
