Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul. -Emily Dickinson

We had special guest this week.  It got me looking around at my guest room and thought I need to finish some of those projects that I have been saying I'm going to do.  So as you can see I had a lamp in the room that I found at Goodwill in Smyrna and had put an old shade that must have been in one of my children's room at one time (I'm pretty sure I didn't draw the pumpkin face on the lamp shade).

I found some white material in my craft room and started ripping strips of fabric.  Just stitched the edge gathering the material as I went. When you rip fabric its amazing no measuring is necessary. he he..
I did not hem any of the ruffles. The material was so nice I just left it raw at the ends and I love the how it came out.
A little glue gun.

 I got so excited with the way it turned out I decided to make a matching pillow for the bed too. Again, no measuring involved.
I plan on moving a chandelier into that room too. I will update with more pictures after.
Hope you have a great day!
