CUSTOMIZED LAMPSHADES

Go on and add a little ribbon.... Hows a bout some toile....

Maybe an old scrap of lace lying around...



How could I leave out the balls....



or ticking stripe....



and beads always look real charming!!!





Next time a plain, boring, clearance lampshade crosses your path scoop it up. You can always pretty it up with a little bit of this or a little bit of that!!

It's an award!! This one is from my funny freind Tracey. She always makes me laugh my arss off!!! Be sure and take a peek http://tracey-craftyscraps.blogspot.com/.

Love the lampshades. I have some sheer material I used on my Studio window - it would make a great matching lampshade! Thanks for the idea.
