Dreamy White, Garden Idea, and STOP.

Workin' on this lamp shade.
Someone wants the lamp,
but there was no shade.

So I'm havin' fun playin'.
Grabbed a table runner,
lace flower I'd made,
some jewelry.
all just pinned on for now, but lovin' it!!!

Tried some different pins.
close up of flower and pin.
I also got a new old door,
and see that screen frame hangin' on it?
Cool, huh?

My white bargain this week.
$1.00 store tea pots for 90 cents.
(store closing, 10% off)
Hey, a dime is a dime.
Got six for my little teas.

Fun outdoor idea.

Saw this contraption while walking.
The lady said her 9 year old son made it.
Used a hand truck, scooter, board, seat.

Gave me an idea.
How about a hand truck.....
with a wooden box of flowers on it.
(you could use an old crate)
You could move it around to wherever you want.

(not done yet but you can imagine) =)

And here is my red.

STOP!! Doing so many things!!
a word to myself this morning.

I'm linking up with the parties below.
Please go visit and thank the wonderful hostesses.

Hope you all have a blessed Wednesday.

Whatcha Working On Wednesdays

Very cool shade, I do lace wrapped shades and have been meaning to wrap one in an old lace table cloth, and I love your idea too. Also gives me an idea how to use the twisted fabric flower rosettes, leftover from another project.
That go cart is too funny!
