Dressing Her Up


Last week while I was in my favorite Target location (our store at the beach is soooo awesome...always find the best deals there)...I found a really cute little pewter lamp on clearance for only $4.99...so I just had to have it! I knew she would look great in my kitchen with all the pewter hardware and light fixtures...so now she calls my kitchen her new home. I already had this pretty little shade, but I thought I would dress it up a little bit with some jute and one of these "stinkin cute" little flowers that are all over blogland...got out some extra fabric left over from my new kitchen curtains and a covered button and went to town...dressing her up! I should be cleaning house, but instead I'm crafting away...I have almost forgot how much FUN it is...I guess you could say that I've got the CRAFT BUG! Simply Designing

Oh my gosh, what a find! I so rarely get to Target. I have to drive about 25 mins to get to the closest one so, I am always stuck going to the Walmart here in town. :( Stopping by from NFFriday. If you get a min stop by. Have an awesome weekend!
