le doily lampshade!

there was once a lampshade that was perfectly nice, but perfectly plain...

and there was once a gal named margot who had a history of doily loving and collecting...

...and her collection started to grow HUGE due to some very generous packages in the mail from some blogger friends (hi rachel), some trips to flea markets with her parents (hi mom & dad) and an amazing package filled with a great grandmother's collection (hi taylor)...
and then some of her blogger pals started a group called project restyle...

so she got to work sewing and cutting and measuring...



...and VOILA! a doily lampshade :-)



*i was inspired by many doily creations, including this gorgeous lamp! and this post! - and thanks miss denbow and miss katie cupcake for having a better memory than me!!)

It looks great! I love the colors you chose, too! (How's Tristan doing with the doilies?)

OH, your package for the kids arrived yesterday and they loved it all! S now has a place to put his money when we go to Target to buy his transformer and Ruby picked up her little purse by herself today to go the grocery store with Brett! She knows what it's for! Ha!

Thank you for being so thoughtful!

I'm doing pretty well, along with the picture of Oprah, pink desk and lots of bath products.
