A Feathered Lampshade

Did I mention how much I LOVE PINK!  Yep, I did. 
Well here's another lamp for the Tea Party Castle.  Once again my partner Sharon worked her painting magic
 and I decorated the lampshade. 

I can't do a thing with a paint brush.  No talent in that department. 
 My crafty tool of choice is a glue gun and some girly trim.

If it's PINK trim it's even better...
I just purchased a piece of maraboa feathers in the craft section at JoAnn fabrics and there you have it.  A frilly lampshade!

I added the trim to the top of the shade and along each side...

Do you have a "Plain Jane" Lampshade?  Get your glue gun out and some trim and you'll be amazed at what you can create. 
 If you love pink here's some eye candy from Bellas Rose Cottage.
What a great way to display some wonderful teacups!

Wishing you a wonderful Mother's Day weekend. 
 Relax and enjoy the day by checking out these creative sites I'll be linking up to...

That is gorgeous, Sherry! I have a feathered lampshade on my vanity table, but I got it {and the lamp it is attached to at Home Goods}. I love how you decorated the books, too!

Where do you find lampshades. I have some old lampshades that are falling apart. I don't know where to get reasonably priced shades for decorating.

Great lamp creation, Sherry...I love it. The trim you chose is so pretty - it really sets off the feathers. Oooo, what a pretty and smart way to display teacups and a cloche. Happy Mother's Day and PS to you~

Soooo flirty! What a fantastic shape to that shade too! Just seems to make the feathers belong.

And those stacked tea cups are A DOOR able.
