Ash Tree Cottage Blooper



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
