Good Morning Readers! I am in the midst of preparations for a beautiful wedding reception, I'm scurrying to fill my custom stained glass lampshade orders and am also preparing for our family Christmas celebration...all in the midst of some nasty ice on the roads this am. Here's an example of a couple of styles of the small lampshades I'm working on. I have ordered new pattern books for small to medium lampshades and also some beautiful crosses patterns along with more much needed supplies. As I type I am hoping my wonderful UPS deliverer is able to make it out here toThe Olde Farmhouse. Fingers crossed! Well, I am off to assemble a lampshade...photos of the process are shown above. Enjoy my Christmas Tree photo. I'll be sharing more this week of Prudence seeing her first Christmas tree and tree ornament..put it this way, it's a really good thing I decided to go with all unbreakable ornaments this year. However, plastic DOES crack! lol Warm wishes with gratitude, Laurie B.
