Shabby Chic Lampshade

While out junkin I found this gorgeous ruffled lampshade!
For a Shabby Chic lover this is pure heaven. 
I have a favorite corner table in my living room that is always looking smart. 
 I am very laid back but there are some things I am fussy about! 
Lighting is one of eyes are sensitive and bright lights bother me, this lampshade casts the perfect glow!
I am a huge Rachel Ashwell fan, I found one of her older books. 
I adore her style but I'm stuck in a time warp, I like her older books better.
Does that mean I am getting older, I do feel my style changing but I'm not sure it will ever be that simplified. If there is a shelf, table or mantel I fill it! Giggle!
I am opening up my Flea Market booth to social networking...

  10. Ms. O. My Mother had lamp shades just like this when I was a kid. She got them at the 5 and 10 store. What goes around, comes around. Looks great. Richard at My Old Historic House

  11. Hello sweet Olivia!

    Love this lampshade! Love the vintage dress and top too. You look so pretty in it! Of course the mantle is lovely also. Always a pleasure to visit you, and your pretty things. Have a great weekend.

  13. Hi Olivia,
    You look so pretty and cool in your new finds! And your new lampshade is to die for! I have been looking for just a shade and I am afraid I am just going to have to take a day and make one. I found an olden lamp with a sweet girl holding onto her hat and her blowing soft pinks of course. Anyway, she needs a shade!

  14. Such a pretty lamp, Olivia. And oh, I do love your vintage frock and jacket; gorgeous! Thanks for sharing and I trust you had a lovely Pink Saturday weekend.



Hello Friend! Thank you so much for stopping by! I love to hear your thoughts! Hugs, Olivia
