met some customers today at the warehouse and worked on a couple of projects .. let me know what you think ..
the first is a line of pillow shams i am making - they are muslin with a burlap center .. the center of this pillow has been accented with a crown .. we may be offering other designs in the future, but for now i will just be doing the crown .. i will also be doing slipcovers that compliment these pillows ..
the other project is a lampshade, inspired by the team @ Bloom & Bee Swanky .. i covered a lampshade in some gloves i found when sorting through a box of fabrics ..
i started with a plain jane shade that had a nice taper ..
i first arranged the gloves to make sure i would have enough .. and it appeared that i would ..
the finished project .. i accented the shade with a bow of vintage lace ..
i like the way it turned out .. it kind of grows on you ..
rod, sherry & i are headed up tomorrow to visit jenny with uptown country home and see her at the dallas flea and then over to anthropologie ..
a day of adventure ..
