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!

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!

Spring! The sun is shining, the grass needs cutting, bulbs are making their merry way up, up, up to the sun. Here’s a wee birdy standard lamp shade to celebrate. Brilliant turquoise, fresh green and crisp white. (Is the birdy twittering? I am. Follow me, if you like!)
