Well I suppose it depends on whose perspective your looking from.......
In my eyes my Pugsie is such a beautiful sight!!! How can you not love him!!!!
But I suppose in some peoples eyes he would be considered more of an ugly beast!
But when its clean.........
Its a different story!!
I wanted a canopy affect for the bed,
So I took two Rachel Ashwell Simply Shabby Chic lace curtain panels.... sewed them together at the ends...then took ribbon,
tied a bow around certain areas,
then just hooked it on a few nails strategically placed.
I pulled the lace panels to swag a bit.
In another house I did something similar and I used tiny grapevine wreaths to swag the fabric through.
I made these tea cup sconces I can light candles in them if I want.
I'm working on a few custom orders for these but will eventually have them available on my website http://www.mylulabelles.com/
I used the same Rachel Ashwell Shabby Chic lace curtains on the windows but thought I needed a little more punch of color so I used pink curtains underneath the lace to make it pop a bit more.
Its still very soft though.
I love the 3 tiered glass shelf on the night stand.
I bought it while antiquing and it allows me to display more of my smalls very nicely, and make the most of the display space. Something I learned with my brick and mortar.
When your paying rent for a store you make the most of every square foot that you have.
I bought this clock in Connecticut at an antique mall. I had driven up there to go to this wonderful fabric store and took a little detour to this huge antique mall where I found some incredible treasures, this being one of the best!!!
In the softest pinks and blues my favorite color combo!!!
The Lamp shade I made,
I have had this lamp..... well my husband had this lamp from his single days,
I found it packed away and said where did you get this!!!!!!
He said 'that ugly thing!!!"
I said this isn't ugly I love this... anyway to make a long story short,
Ive been waiting to find the right lamp shade for it and finally decided to make one.......
I used this beautiful ribbon and flower garland that I purchased from Holly at www.hollydoodledesigns.com then I wrapped it around adding more flowers and a vintage hankie embellished with vintage pearls and beads that I sell on my website...www.mylulabelles.com
I love the way it turned out and will do some more perhaps for my website.
Notice the figurine lamp I converted into a tea cup candle sconce.....
I can put a little tea light or votive in there. I will be making some of these for the website as well.
sometimes a beauty sometimes a beast but I love it regardless!
same bat channel!!!
