Handmade Teapot Lamp White with Black Polka Dots

I've recently finished this lampshade for the white ceramic teapot I found at a craft store.  I was blessed to find the fabric to match it too.  I love how the teapot has black polka dots on the lid, spout, and base.  The six-foot cord has the on/off switch so it is easily accessible.  The teapot lamp uses a 25-watt candelabra bulb so it's perfect for a kitchen night light.  The lampshade is made from a type of plastic with fabric adhered to it and trimmed with white grosgrain around the top and bottom. I'm selling it on my website at http://www.shades-etc.com/teapot for $49 plus shipping.

Lakewood Ladies Club Vendor Shopping

The Lakewood Ladies Club sponsored our villages Christmas shopping days this year.  I was one of several vendors. It was a snowy day; perfect for Christmas shopping and the children to sit on Santa's lap.Some vendors present were Peterson's Corn Crib Candies, Bonnie's embroidery, three jewelry vendors, the historical society, The Fenton House Museum had a display, a lady with gorgeous crochet baby outfits and free cookies!

It was an okay day as far as sales go.  However, it will probably be my last show as I'm in the process of opening my own gift shoppe in Bemus Point this summer.  I hope to have more information on that soon.
