How can a black lampshade be so brilliant? When it’s adorned with lacquer red and bright white Odoriko dancers, swimming with cherry blossom and glittering gold petals. It works very well indeed here, in a customer’s very lovely dining room.


I have just delivered three Blue Odoriko
Dancers to a customer. The shades look so stunning in their new surroundings, each geiko and Odoriko casting their coy gaze over the conservatory and the pretty garden beyond. The customer was pleased as punch, and paid me extra too. What a compliment!

Surely not? But this is super nice. Black background, littered with gold petals. Serene salmon pink and dark red Japanese Odoriko dancers float among petite cherry blossom. Divine.

Stabbed myself with my extremely sharp rotary cutter which I use to cut fabric. Blood quickly beading away on my little finger whilst Fraser struggled to open the plaster wrapper. I could have bled to death! Two plasters on and with a slightly numb pinkie, I’m okay. And pleased with the shades I made tonight – one using gold and mulberry Osborne and Little wallpaper edged with mocha satin bias tape. It looks luxurious and it’s for my bedroom – yippee!

Welcome! Tell me your thoughts.
