Errors. I make them. My mistakes make my heart clang, my face burn red and my knees go wobbly. Thus my state when I discovered that shipping a shade to Canada was going to leave me quite a bit out of pocket. In the early days I haphazardly guessed International Shipping Rates on Bouf thinking I would never be shipping abroad. Wrong. Shipping to Canada/USA, Rest of World and Australia/New Zealand is not cheap, especially when boxes have to be generous to allow all that protective packaging. Of course, I honoured the postage and Pink Lace Butterfly is currently making its long journey to Edmonton, Canada. With Bouf’s commission and my mistake I am effectively giving this shade away for free… Hey ho. Lesson learned. Onwards!

Blimey. The Look of Love Lampshade is throwing you a glance or two.

(And in celebration of the book prop ‘The Best Dance Moves in the World… Ever!’ go to my Facebook page to watch me put a Thriller routine into action.)

Alright, alright. I admit it. These were not my idea, but my very clever husband’s. I poo pooed him, then paused and had a think. So, thanks to you guys for voting, I went ahead and bought small quantities of gorgeous Christmas fabrics to make these cheerful shades. Who knows, someone might buy one!

I’m always looking at fabric: scrolling and clicking away until, hey! I love this! It’s a Japanese fabric called Wonderforest and it’s certainly that. A forest of monkeys, owls, lions, frogs, cats and snails among toadstools, trees, stars and rainbows. All on white, wavey, red and pink polka dot patches. A little one’s delight. And because of the design this can go either way – a pendant or a shade for a base. You can buy it, if you like, from Stylistic Gallery or I Love Crafty!

That Bird Lamphade goes Supersize. Truly large and lavish. 45cm diameter shade in Alexander Henry June Song Tea. I can hear the wee birdies chirping away from here… If you like, you can buy it here or a smaller version here. Or you could always just drop me a line.

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!
