Retro lamp redo

I found this great retro lamp in my local thrift store. I am amazed that the glass did not break over the years. Now the redo starts. What fun!!!!!
Mike will have to first repair the wiring and then I have the task of finding the PERFECT new lampshade. I am thinking of black and white geometric design. I think this will go well with the aqua glass. But red and white will also look striking. 
Will post a photo when the project is done.

So it was Lilac Sunday this weekend. What a great show. It was so busy. I have not seen so many dogs and kids and people in the Arboretum at once before. We go every year and the lilacs are always so lovely. The perfume air is all around you.

Silk Chiffon Scarfs

I love the new silk chiffon scarf I just dropped of at Turtle. It is brown leopard with turquoise spots. Really funky. I then sewed on more chiffon that is turquoise leopard.
The amazing thing is it goes with a lot of colours.
Go try it on.

I Just dropped of a great dozen of summer hats to the STORE at the Decordova museum in Lincoln. What a great store. They always have such a great array of goods. You don't have to pay to visit the store although it is always fun to see the exhibitions or just have a picnic in the sculpture park. The weather is so fantastic now.

The mix of hats include a oversize straw cloche decorated with a silk chiffon leopard band, a light pink straw cloche with white flower cascade on the one side.

Also a new Japanese fabric hat. So colourful and easy to wear. Small brim just big enough to cover your face from the sun.
