~ fun pretty shade ~

Hello and happy Saturday to all of you sweet girlies,
Hoping you are out enjoying this beautiful Spring day ... And doing something, well .. kinda fun !! It's my mommas' birthday tomorrow .. soo I've been getting ready for her BiG day !! My Sisters are coming over in the morning, and we are taking her to brunch, and than my niece and brother in law are in a play together in LA, so we are off to see them perform .. It should be a wonderful celebration for her, and when you get us altogether it can be a rather crazy day .. I LoVe my sisters and my Momma ... Brother too, but, this is a girlie day !!!

I've been playing a bit today too, and wanted to share with you what I did .. Last week Christie Repasy shared how she bought a beautiful ruffled skirt, and adorned her lamp with it, soo, I went out and found this cute little girls ballet skirt, and dressed a lamp up in my family room .. it was sooo fun, and I think it looks so"vintage chic" and sooo romantic ... I wrapped a pink satin ribbon and flower to her afterwards .. you can go on and on .. but, for now, this is how she looks .. I really want to find more of a ruffled one, BUT, this was all I could find that day !! there is soo many darn cute little ruffled romantic skirts out now, BUT, I wouldn't dare wear one, BUT, will have so much fun repurposing these darling pieces .. I think at different holidays I can change the decor on them a little, and have grand ideas on doing so !!

This is another reason, I LoVe visiting all you wonderful friends on your blogs .. there is soo much shared, and I think it is so interesting that we all enjoy so much of the same styles, decor, and can share our passions with each other !! You all have inspired me with your ideas, words, and pictures !! I think down deep inside, most of us are die hard romantics, and are always trying to find and discover just the right accessory and combination of details to display somehow in our little cottage, or grand homes .. whatever your sweet haven may be !!

Well girlies, until next time, keep creating and sharing your ideas !! Have fun playing house, and as always, thanks for your always kind words, encouragement and wonderful, romantic ideas ~

Blessings for a wonderful week-end
Huggers as usual

  12. Hello Tanza ~I've truly missed my visits, but little by little I'm catching up.
    Although last month was difficult with our loses a new month has brought new hope.
    I poured myself a cup of tea and read a spell...These lamp skirts are so frilly and dainty...pretty. This is such a lovely change from the traditional shade.
    I have to mention how stunning your glass coffee decanter is. I've been hunting for one, but the only one I've found was over $250. I'm still looking. The painted roses add such a romantic touch.

    I'm so excited to see spring blooms popping up. I look forward to applying the inspirational palette of colors into a few projects, cooking and decorating.
    Don't you love the aroma that fills the air during this season?
    It's definitely invigorating.
    Come by for a visit. Your company would be nice.

    Sweet wishes,
    Sara

  14. Hi Tea, I like your 'new' lampshade. It is so precious. I saw that on Christy's blog too. That's a cute idea. Your's is cute too with the petals in it. Hope y'all had fun on your mom's birthday. She and I have the same birthday. April 11th. I had a good day too even though I had to work. After work my daughter invited me over for a dinner party. I posted about it this morning. She finally figured out how to leave a comment on my blog! lol That's a little scary for me! No telling what she will be telling y'all. LOL

  22. HAPPY PINK SATURDAY TEA
    HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOUR MOTHER
    WHAT FUN YOU AND YOUR SISTERS WILL HAVE WITH HER...MEMORIES MADE TO FILE AWAY
    THE LAMP IS GORGEOUS...GIRLIE AND I LOVE IT. I LOOK AT BEDSKIRTS AT GOODWILL AND GARAGE SALES AS THE RUFFLE ON THE BEDSKIRT IS JUST ABOUT THE RIGHT SIZE FOR A STANDARD LAMPSHADE AND YOU CAN USE THOSE RUFFLES FOR A LOT OF THINGS.
    THANK YOU FOR ALL THE INSPIRATION.
    HUGS AND BLESSINGS
    SIMPLY DEBBIE
