Beautifully Done Custom Order

This beautiful shade has a twin.  It was ordered by a customer of a designer friend.  No, I didn't make these this time.  I had a company in Pittsburgh do these as I'm in the middle of opening up a gift shoppe and didn't have the time to do these.  I have the options of making the shades myself or ordering them from someone else.  So if you are in the need of a new lampshade or shades, contact me to see what we can do.

Exquisite Things Gift Shoppe Progress

While on vacation in North Carolina, I found this beaded, crochet shawl.  It was so pretty and felt so good that I just HAD to buy it.  Who knows, maybe I'll carry them in my new gift shoppe too.

Exquisite Things Gift Shoppe Progress

We found this shelf at a home sale. It needed paint and I added wallpaper to the front sides that was left over from wallpapering the pillars in the shoppe. In a couple weeks you won't be able to see much of the wallpaper because of the inventory that will on it; but it looks pretty now!

Finally! I've Made My Own Lampshades For My House

I've been wanting to make a new lampshade for my floor lamp in the master bedroom for years now. Today it finally happened. The original shade was a cream, pleated shade. This fabric matches the stenciled border in the bedroom. I'm very pleased with it AND so is my husband. He noticed it almost immediately and said "very nice!".
So if you are looking for new custom-made lampshades and want to match your current decor, email me or call me for a quote.
