What Is A Shade?

A shade in this case is a covering over a light bulb which can make or break the look of a lamp. Kay, one of my customers sent me this picture of a shade she purchased at the shop. She had bought the neat lamp somewhere else but the shade was too big. She did a good job finding the right shade and using the correct harp to make it fit. Lamp shades do make all the difference in what a lamp will look like. Bring in an old lamp and we will help find the perfect shade for you.

Textiles Arrived

Family Heirloom Weavers has done a new pillow case that has a two button closure as seen in the photo. The red one is called mice teeth because of the design on the sides.

I also received a nice shipment of table squares, throws and a a few new blanket designs. The shelves are filling up and more coming in the weeks ahead.

Happy Colors !!

The robin's egg blue on this enamelware makes a nice contrast with the lemons. Notice that the old crate is also blue and yellow, someone else was thinking the same way. Of course zinnias tucked in anywhere adds a little cheer. This creamy cabinet I filled with grey enamelware but without the touches of red it would be rather drab. Please don't misunderstand I love drab and dark but in some cases it might need to have a little lift.
