hi mary ann,

i adore this lamp and shade. i love the fabric! won't you please come stay with me for a week and fix all my lampshades. they all need a make-over. i read your tutorial and i've attempted this before but not with such great results. it would be much easier if you just did them for me!

Dear MaryAnn!

Thank you for coming by AND leaving a comment! Oh, do we love cottages around here, and I live in a Minneapolis cottage; it is a charming place that we lovingly call Rabbit Hill. Come by anytime for a cup of tea and if you are fluent, some French interior tours!!! Have a lovely day out there in Clovis! Anita

Mary Ann, I love the fabric you used for the lamp shade. I have such a lamp addiction. I always see new ones I want, but really don't need anymore. Have a super weekend.

Hi there! Just discovered your blog. I adore that fabric you chose to cover that lampshade in...and the lamp itself is stunning. Is that a pewter base with amber glass?
Thanks for sharing.
