Repurposed Lamp Shade!

Hey there friends!  What a beautiful weekend!  Hope everyone else enjoyed as lovely weather as we have had here.  It was my birthday weekend, and I couldn't have asked for better weather.  YAY.  What did I do for my birthday weekend you ask?  I whipped up 14 pillow covers for a daybed project I have in the works.  It was more enjoyable than it sounds... REALLY.

Onto the repurposed lamp shade.  It's sort of an obvious repurposed project.  You know those old lamp shades that are put together like stained glass.  They make pretty bowls for a potted plant.

An obvious repurposed idea... right?! 
Anyway, thought it was pretty, so I shared. : )
Hope you're having a FANTABULOUS weekend!

Pretty Ceramics!

Details update!  I've had a couple of questions about the ceramics filled with succulents.  These small colorful ceramic cups came from Anthropologie.

These particular mugs don't seem to be available any longer, but there are other cute options, like these below.  

They're great from small pops of color!

Living Room Project Nearing Completion!

Lots to post about these days!  Remember the living room project I've been working on?  It's finally almost done.  It's been months of doing this room in stages.  At the start the homeowner was adamant about not changing the wall color or the carpet.... she had that paint color for 18 years, and well... had become VERY attached to it, but she wanted a FRESH new look all at the same time.  So anyway.... here is a reminder of what the room looked like to start.

And now.... several months later... and a little poking, prodding and arm twisting....(her cast comes off next month!) 
A fresh new look! 
(She loves it by the way and now hates the old paint color!)

We used lots of bright colored ceramics filled with succulents for accessorizing.  Love them!

I made the large blue piece of art and added a painting she already had above the mantel.  I love the bright pops of color against the grey wall.

There is still more to be done... but not much.  Just one wall.  I'll be posting that soon.
