Inspiring words...


"Use the talents you possess ...









for the woods would be a very silent place
if no birds sang except for the best."

~Henry Van Dyke~


That was my inspiration
when I decided to recover
an old, ugly lampshade.





I hope they will also inspire you
to create something pretty today!


For more Inspiration,

I love that pretty bird and have seen it a few times here and there. Is it from a craft store? Or a photo shop type program? Just curious. By the way, your lamp looks stunning, tami

Very pretty! I don't know why anyone wouldn't want that little white table but your certainly repurposed it beautifully! You always have so many inspiring things going on over here. I too have projects left undone, some from the 80's. Yikes! I keep saying finish what you start, but I am so easily distracted. :/ Have a great weekend. Tammy

You sure did! Unfortunately so far I didn't have any luck with printing on fabric.

I adore your lampshade! I love anything with birds, and of course I love all things French, so this is right up my alley!
