Beatrix Potter Lampshade!

Hey Dolls!

Ok so Back in December I went to LA...

I took a Deb Hodge class
 at Kim Caldwell's 
Beautiful Home!

I'm finally Finished.
woo hoo

It was supposed to be a Chandelier

I made mine into a real Lampshade



Deb used a vintage lampshade base.
She did all the beautiful fabric ruching for us.

All of the Charms are soldered.
I added tons of bits , baubles & bling.
some German glass glitter.
Lots of vintage rhinestones, and buttons.

Thanks for another wonderful class Hosted by the super cute 
Kim Caldwell

Love Her!

Have a Fabulous week girls!
