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.

Clarice, you sure do know how to gussie things up. I'm so glad you got a new camera!

What clever decorating ideas I'm seeing in your holiday posts! So clever and adorable, Clarice. You have the cutest ideas.



Love the lamp!

Oh yes, a "gussy apron", perfect.

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 ^..^


Just beautiful! I love your 'new' lamp and remade drapes!

Great job, Miss Clarice!



What a charming idea! I love that trim. I've never seen any like that before. It's pretty wonderful, as is that beautiful tree!


What a pretty idea …
That is a wonderful look.
