Finial Fan pulls

These are great finials for any lamp. I'd like to make a lamp to feature one of these!

Plum Hayley Victorian Lamp

Here's my finished lamp ready for my next craft show this weekend in Erie. The Erie Crafter's Guild show is at Zem Zem on Saturday and Sunday. I love the fabric on this. It is an Australian silk that I purchased at Quilter's Fancy in Cortland, Ohio. The beads are also from that shop. This was my first time lining this type of shade. It definitely needed a lining as the light bulb was visible through the fabric.

Pfaltzgraff City Market Lamps

I just finished this order tonight with Keith's help. These teapots and canister from Pfaltzgraff turned out really nice. The shades are handmade by me and the Pfaltzgraff custom-made into lamps by Keith. We are lighting up the world one lamp at a time! I like making lamps for people and making new friends.

Dorm decorating without breaking the bank - Lifestyles

This is a good article about decorating dorm rooms and I like the idea of using lampshades to match the decor. I can definitely help with creating handmade shades for lamps.

I found a wonderful trick for getting stickers off the bottom of the teapots. I was using a knife and oops but Barbara Sams told me to soak them in hot water. Awesome, the stickers just wiped right off. Now the bottom of the teapots look as good as the tops.
