A surprise from a friend,
a beautifully decadent lampshade...
my bestest bud Cathie C
left a package for me on my front porch...
Cathie and I met years ago because of our
interest in reproducing
Victorian lampshades and our love
of antiques and dusty old stuff.
This is one of the first shades she bought
with intent to redo, but Cath and I both
are just too busy to start up another
shade project and she knows where my
love lies...dusty n crusty...
We are all familiar with the decadent
style of Magnolia Pearl,
check out the shades...
Thanks to Robin my style is defined.
There is a welcomed feeling in the
shabbiness of crumbling interiors.
Not Shabby Chic, not really Victorian,
more like brothel meets Gypsy caravan...
this style suites me well, especially in
the surroundings of my lil' pink shack
and these wonderful lampshades
TOTALLY set the mood...
Especially when lit, this is one of Cathie's
handmade shades, TO DIE FOR...
and this is my bestest bud Cathie
and her partner in crime Bill.
Both are totally into travel and set
no limits as to where their next
adventure will take them...
she is truly a soul sister, a one of a kind,
a pure light spirit!!!
I love you girl...let's get together soon,
I MISS YOU!!!
