Shades!






Happy Thursday all! Hope you have had a nice week.
I have been busy as usual. I wanted to show you a couple of lampshades I was working on this week. One is all wrapped in burlap, and the other one is done in crinkled ribbon. It takes some time and effort but the results are worth it. They are headed out to Sticks N Stones, as is this special order cross. I had a lot of fun embellishing and making this very girly.
Thanks for all of the nice comments on my new drop cloth chair. I am enjoying the way it looks and feels.
My back is feeling a lot better. My rib was out of place. I'm happy to report that after my chiropractor put it back where it belongs it's staying there so far.
No lifting baby Jake this week, but if you want to see the cutest new photos of Jake in the pool for the first time, please visit Amanda's blog.
Have a lovely weekend!!
Chat again soon.
Love,
Rosemary

I just love to see what you are up to dearest Rosemary! You are about the only person I know that can use burlap as if it was silk. THE MAGIC TOUCH!
