Lamp shade DIY and other stuff...

Does felt count as fabric?
 If so here is your dose of Fresh Fabrics Friday...

Using Pam's fish scale lampshade as inspiration, my CSIL was at it again with this lampshade update. I'll let the pictures do the talking here.






Yet again, kudos to Therese, didn't she do a great job?
I love how the light shines through the felt "scales" giving a beautiful pattern to the shade and adding interest without overpowering.


As for the other stuff, I was helping a friend of mine stage some "work" photos for her business website (her husband was the photographer and 
has some mad camera skills) and asked if I could get a shot or two for  an updated profile pic. 
We had such a great time and I think the photos taken using a tip that Jenn shared turned out the best. 

Here I am in all of my gray haired, wind blown glory... I kinda like it, you?


My husband thinks that the combo of my necklace and the neckline of my shirt give me a 
Wilma Flintstone look... 


I must say, I got a chuckle out of that!!!

Finally, after all of your encouragement to pursue the patio furniture I shared the other day, 
I went for it....
only to find out that it was already sold :(
He who hesitates misses out....

Enjoy the week-end ahead. Around here we have prom happening tomorrow, I'll be sure to share a photo or two.

First of all, the lamp shade is AMAZING!! Second, your profile pic is gorgeous! You look great and, seriously, photos taken from above is where it's at. So flattering :)

Wow, that lampshade is amazing. I love the light coming through it. You look great in gray hair. I don't see the resemblance to Wilma. As for the patio furniture...I've waited too long, too. Wasn't meant to be.

you look beautiful! your hair is the perfect shade of gray, too- seriously so stylish and sophisticated. and i loved your outfit, and was going to comment on the awesome necklace and scrolled down and saw your husband beat me to it. ;) and that lamp.... well i think you might be a saint because that required the patience of a saint.

You look fabulous, my friend and your outfit is darling! Love her fish scale shade ~ I made something similar when I first started blogging and still have it in our family room, such great texture! Have fun with the kiddos this weekend!
