I've Been Tweaking Again

Very few things that arrive to our cottage remain the same.  
I'm always tweaking something to better please my eye.  Case in
point ~ this lamp shade.  Too country for me, but it was a cheapie,
so I tweaked it.

Now it looks like this.

Much better.  I wonder if my hubby will notice it?
Probably not.

I am joining ~ 


Bentley ~ Momma has to put her foot up and put the ice bag 
back on her big toe.  It still hurts after I overturned the cast iron
boot scraper onto my toe last night while I was watering
the flowers.  Ouch!
