Tuesday Treasures!

This is something I've always wanted to do...

Isn't it just so sweet? It was done by sassyshades. Here are a few of her thoughts...
"I enjoy creating and have done so in one way or another for many years. With the support of a great mentor, Judy Lake, this outdoor enthusiast, former full-time restaurateur, and mother of three has unleashed her artistic side and is cooking up some sassy lampshades at her studio.




Feeling Groovy Lampshade

So what’s the recipe?
A “Sassy” ShadeIngredients:
  • An array of fun and colorful textiles or unique finds (old and new)
  • Tossed with an armful of imagination and charm
  • Add a dash of trim Sprinkle with a passion for detail
  • Handle and combine cheerfully
  • Put on top of a lamp base and indulge!


I find handmade items to be personal and a labor of love. Vintage, recycled or eco-friendly materials are heartwarming to me to me but the real thrill is the hunt for that special item or the inspiring idea that jumps out at me while I’m going about my day. My desire is to fill your home with a lampshade that will be absolutely treasured!



Pink and Orange Toile Lampshade

Currently, I reside in the beautiful Puget Sound town of Edmonds, located north of Seattle.

Enjoy,
