Even My Lamp Is Gussied For Christmas

Christmas lamp 

I gussied up my lamp, again. I love it so much, I am thinking I need to make an apron like this. This wonderful vintage trim by the way, is from Edge To Edge (and I saw there was still some when I was there). All I did is make tucks in the trim and pin it from under the fabric (there is a zillion pins under there). I covered it with ribbon. This way when I move on to a new look (and you know I will) I just unpin it all.

I also made new little curtains for my craft area. All I did was take the old drapes and cut small ones. I did not hem, I am lazy. I just sewed the pom-pom's on the side and hung them up with thumb tacks. It took like 15 minutes. Easy, peasy !!!

You know I love me some pom pom fringe - especially red! Love the curtain and the lamp (looks very Swedish Country)! So pretty - it's amazing what a bit of trim can do.

Love the lamp, Clarice; but I am completely green over your new plates! A find like that would make me giddy through the new year! xo Cat ^..^
