DIY Lampshades

I am all up for DIY projects and this one looks like a really fun one! I found this idea at Teeny Blessings.  It's a how to make your own lampshade project using a lampshade frame, some fabric and trim.  It's a really great project that I'm sure you could start and finish in a few hours. With a bit of creativity, you could come up with a very nice  personalized lamp or ceiling fixture. I think it would be a great way to revamp a junk store find. I love this idea, I think I will try this sometime myself.

An Exercise in Color and Seashells!

So, I was meandering online when I happened upon The Neo-Traditionalist blog.  I instantly was drawn to the colorful images and the over all cheeriness of this site.  The author of this blog is Katie Armour, an  interior designer with a talent for applying her skills online as well!  


Burlap Chair Makeover

Isn't this chair adorable? I found this makeover at Sarah Lorenz's blog, Northwest Hospitality.  Sarah says she paid $10 for it at a thrift shop. What a great makeover!

Here are some cute photos I found over at a neat blog called House of Turquoise.  Erin, the owner of the blog has catalogued very interesting images in many shades of turquoise.  What an original inspiration and what an enjoyable blog!
