New Project~

Don't you love it when something turns out pretty good??? I found this not so cute lamp at the local thrift shop...I think it was $2..I like it's little tiny size...brought it home,cleaned and sanded just a tad..a little paint and stain...now,he's a cutie...added some lace to an old shade and now it lights up a little dark spot....
My latest completed project...can you tell I really like lace? I loved this saying the first time I saw it....a sweet reminder that death is not the end and we will see those we love once again....

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

  1. How sweet your lamp turned out to be. Of course, anything with lace makes my heart skip a beat! ;) Love the way you've wrapped the crochet around the shade. Oh, I love that saying too....that is our hope. We're just passing through this life on our way to our real home!
