Rie Elise Larsen Shades in SALE

You may or may not know that Folly&Glee has been a partner on pretty much since the beginning 4 years ago. Tomorrow sees the start of the sale and we've made a few major price slashes.
One of the best bargains with more the 50% off has to be the last of the gorgeous Rie Elise Larsen pleated paper lampshades in a choice of two sizes and four colours.

I've only just learnt that the fabulous new craft magazine Mollie Makes featured them in Issue 2. More on this amazing mag next time... happy bargain hunting.

Shady trio from a vintage sheet

In between showers I have been laundering a stash from the back of the airing cupboard. A stash of bed linen from the 60s and 70s. As is seems that we have settled on our colour combos for our bedroom it feels greedy to keep those I will never use.

So in love am I with barkcloth that its been quite some time since I made a lamp shade in anything else. The crisp cottony loveliness of one particular piece kept on nagging away to be given a go.
Finding that I had just the right shade of teal blue crochet trim and a length of my favourite Wrights vintage cotton pom poms I gave in. Here are the results.
A trio of shady lovelies.

I am thinking that I should like to make all 3 sizes available in a variety of different retro cottons from "the stash". I'm hoping to have them in the shop by Monday.
Have a lovely week end

PS. I got distracted whilst posting by the puzzle feature on Picnik. Family photos are being transformed into jigsaw puzzles as we speak! You've got to have a go.
