What makes YOU happy??

Several Years ago, I started collecting vintage ceramic Mermaids. When I started, I would just buy any that I found even if I wasn't in love with them. Over the years though, I've been a REALLY good girl...and I've downsized my collection to only the Girls That I absolutely LOVE....Whenever I see their sweet little faces it's sure to make me Happy!....





So...What makes YOU happy???

What are Your Lampshades Wearing??

It's Raining again here on the Cape...seems EVERY weekend lately it's snowing or Raining...Makes for a very SLOW day in the shop...I would have thought that we New Englanders were made of hardier stock than to let a little snow or rain keep us home...but there you have it!...So...as I looked around the shop/house...and being kinda bored and lonely with no one to talk to...I realized that I seem to have a Lampshade Fetish...Yup...That's right ...It seems as though I can't just leave a lampshade be...I have to..hmmm...I guess Vintage Lizzie it...so here are a few pics of my Pretty Lampshades...some in the Shop and some in the The House or my Studio...all gussied up...

Ladies!...What are your Lampshades wearing????
