Would You Doily Me a Favor??

hey y'all!

it's the weekend but it's WET and DREARY outside ... so yadda yadda yadda, i'm at home sitting in front of my computer. blogging when i should be working ebay or at least sorting/sifting through That Room of mine which is FILLED to the GILLS with junk.

GOOD junk mind you. the kind i need to SELL.

why am i using so many caps?! i think there's an italicize button on this thing for emphasis. let me check ... ok now i see it! no more yelling.

anyway, queen of digression that i am ... i'm blogging because i wanted to share my new baby with y'all! it's a gorgeous, one-of-a-kind lamp shade for my vintage lamp lady (yes, i realize she has no arms. but i don't discriminate. i'm an equal opportunity vintage junk lover).

if you've read my blog in the past, you'll remember me talking (more like raving) about my dear friend sue (aka vintagesue). this lady is a treasure and her creations are simply incredible!

i was telling her the other day that i get a natural "high" when i see the lovely things she's created. i swear, the endorphins are buzzing fast and furious in my blood and brain. she. is. a. creative. genius! a magic-maker!

and what an angel she is. after showing her my new vintage lamp lady, she volunteered to doily-up a lampshade for it. wow. who am i to turn down an offer like that?!

so here it is, in all its glory! it's a beauty and made by the loving and oh-so-gifted hands of sue. the only problem i have with it is ... it's so beautiful all the way around, with different embellishments ... so which side do i display???

i guess for now i'll just turn the shade a degree or two every morning and it'll be a new masterpiece every day!

thank you, thank you, thank you sue!! you're. the. BEST (and yes, now i'm yelling)! :)

love and hugs, y'all!

Very cute! I think you made a wise choice to turn a little every day so you can see something different...or maybe just once a week so you can enjoy each side for more than a day. :)

Oh I see your dilemma! How about everytime you turn the lamp on you turn the lampshade? Sue is a genius. Me and Bristol were at Hobby Lobby today and kept finding cute/cool things. But we wondered what we would do with them. Then we both decided Sue would know. Wouldn't it be fun to walk through Hobby Lobby with Sue? We would get so many ideas, wouldn't we??
The lampshade is DARLING!
