Shabby Chic Lamp Shade Satin Rosette

Hello Darling friends!
Happy Pink Saturday!
Think twice before you throw out that outdated, snagged or
ill fitting lingerie!

I picked up a plain pink and white gingham lamp shade at the "Pink Door".
I knew it needed some fluff soooooo, I dipped into my pretty Shabby lace collection!
I layered lace like a waterfall from the top of the lamp shade all the way down.

Next I created this beautiful silky rosette out of the trim of
an ill fitting nightie shirt, too pretty to throw away, I knew it would have a future use.
I cut a 1 inch piece from the hem of the shirt top all the way around, so I would not have frayed edges. I then carefully made a pretty rosette taking care to leave the hemmed edge on the outside.

I had enough to make a pretty rosette attached to a clippy for my hair!
Oh so pretty and breathtakingly shabby!
I will be sharing this with

How Sweet the Sound


Happy Pink Saturday my lovely friends!
Hugs,
Olivia

  3. Olivia, you make such pretty things. Love the lamp shade. Just so cute. I also love your tea cup on the candle stick. I collect candle sticks and am sick of just having a votive on top of them and I have seen this in your post before, so this fall as I am re-doing things, I am going to be gluing a saucer on top of candle sticks and displaying some pretty teacups this way for the holidays! Thanks so much for all your inspiration!

  7. Hi Olivia,

    I use vintage linens on all of the lamps in my great room. They are fun to play with. I love the use of the lingerie on your lamp..it's really sweet and shabby..just perfect.

  13. Olivia when I go to yard sales I look for lacy lingerie and other clothes that have interesting fabric to use when I sew!!
    As usual sweetie your lamp shade is gorgeous!
