Some Awards, Lampshade Redo, and Yard Sale Finds

I received some wonderful awards I need to share with you. Tricia Anne (notesofsincerity.blogspot.com) and JennyKate (jennykate77.blogspot.com) gave me The Kreative Blogger award. Thank you to both of them! I am not that creative, I am just a good copier!


Nichole (thepumpkinseed.blogspot.com) and Sue (sue-thecottonpatch.blogspot.com) gave me the Fabulous Fall Decor award. Thank you ladies! It has been so fun decorating for fall. I am already thinking about Christmas and how early is too early to get my stuff out and start decorating!


I recovered a shade I have on a small lamp in my living room. I used some leftover checked fabric from my chair redo and bought some red trim to cover the edges. Sometimes I don't use trim, but it usually looks better and more finished if I do.





There were not very many yard sales this weekend. I only bought these two things - Winter Welcome sign for $1 and the bunny for $2.


I have got some projects in the works (as always) that I'll be showing soon. I have a very long list of things I've written down that I want to do that I've seen on blogs and in magazines. There are so many cute ideas that are out there - it's hard to pick and choose which ones to do. I want to do them all!

I still haven't tried covering a lampshade but I want to. Yours looks SO GOOD! I, too, have so many ideas to copy but there's just not enough time.

Congrats on your awards! Love all your cute finds. I have that same rabbit in my entryway.

By the way you had asked about the font on my signs I used a font called Harrington.

That lamp shade is soooo cute! I love gingham fabric. So I need to cover some shades on my sconces in my hall. Is is a lot dimmer with the fabric? Hey, congrats on your awards! You have a great blog!

Yay for you and your awards!
Thenew lampshade looks great. I have a question about recovering a lampshade, what kind of glue do you use to attach the fabric?
I like your chair redo too!
