Naked Shades Re-Dressed


Please pardon the lousy photos.  Left my camera at my booth so had to take these photos there.   This is some of what I've been working on the past week, taking naked lamp shades and making them over.
 CLICK on the second photo , you can see them better larger. 
Work in progress
Root your cuttings

This was the easiest place to hang the shades for photos

Special order for a garden room

Covered with chicken wire, moss added then a fairy chime set inside

Close up of the fairy chime
Have orders for more so when I get them finished I'll take better photos and have more ideas for you as well.    I'm joining  Beverly's Pink Saturday , http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/my_weblog/2013/05/mothers-day-pink-saturday-may-11-2013.html   stop by to see lots of pretty pinks!  Visit Funky Junk Interiors  for some great ideas
and  visit  Ivy and Elephants   for an inspirational Mother's Day message.
Thanks for visiting and for your sweet comments.
 Next week I'm off to Virginia to catch up with some sweet friends, take in Luckett's market and have some fun.  I'll try and take lots of photos to share.
  Until next time, ya'll bee sweet and come back soon !

I love these, Francie - you're just so talented... Keep the photos coming!

these are fabulous Francie! I think my fave is the root cutting one which also would be wonderful with those little battery operated lights in the jars for hanging on a porch. There's a chalkboard in my kitchen with a handwritten sign on it that says: Welcome Francie. :)

Love the moss covered shade Francie! I have several shades just for this purpose but have yet to get to them! Trying to redo my booth which this is a terrible time of year to do a major change as it is getting busy at the store- but I gotta do it when I have time so....

Always enjoy seeing what you are doing!

bee blessed
