Plum Perfect Friday - A Versatile Vinette

I found this cute tray at a garage sale recently, and wanted to whip up some fun ideas I've had lately...a nice little kitchen table centerpiece that can be removed easily when it's time to eat!

Have a pleasantly perfect Friday!

Rusty Rave Monday - Lovely Lacy Lamp

I needed to come up with an idea to redo this lamp for my guest room make over...I wanted it to be pink, so I looked through my paraphernalia and found a battenburg lace valence...and the light went on! Of course, I repainted the lamp base, then went to work on the shade cover.

I sewed a small casing in between the existing casing on the valence.

Then I ran some narrow elastic through the casing...

...and gathered it up.

Then sewed some ribbon on each end,

...and tied it on!

Tad da! Not to shabby! All in all it probably took me a half an hour...that's my kind of expeditious endeavor!

Hope you have had a lovely Monday, I did!
