Don't laugh ~ never mind, go ahead and laugh because I am. You see I
had this idea to cover the lamp shade for this vintage lamp in my studio.
I decided to make a ruffled shade using scraps of this and that. I just
started working away on it while I was watching YouTube videos on
the best way to get rid of callouses on the bottom of feet. (You see I do
like to multi~task). Well I got a bit carried away with the shade and it
is now too big for the base. I stepped back to see just how bad it looks
and decided that it reminds me of a photo of myself when I was a little
girl. I was always skinny and my Mom dressed me up in a party dress
with a full skirt and I posed for a picture with my Grandma. I always
laugh when I see it because I had this full skirt with two skinny little
bird legs holding me up. So now I have a lamp that looks little me
when I was little.
Maybe if I just took off that bottom "petticoat" it would look better.
But then it would not fit either.
Let me stand back and see if it looks any better …
no the proportion is all wrong. It could make a fun hat to
wear at a party. Tee hee.
Bentley let's go ahead and publish this post so that our readers
can have a giggle!
Does this qualify as a metamorphosis?
Everyone will be amazed at how silly I am
I tweaked it all right!
This should inspire everyone on what not to do!
Bentley ~ let's go have a cup of tea before we clean up
the crafting mess I left behind.
Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley
