Lampshade of the Month: April 2014 'Little Miss Cabbage-White'

Little Miss Cabbage-White
A smart rectangular shade covered with antique embroidered white linen and lined with pink and yellow vintage print fabric, embellished with a hand-crocheted frill. Three painted silk butterflies give a hint of springtime to her demure exterior. When the light is flicked on, glorious sunshine-y light fills the room.

here are the rest of the photos... 

believe it or not, i'm not very frilly. Little Miss Cabbage-White was me going off on a tangent. a piece of vintage hand-embroidered and crocheted linen and a happy scrap of yellow and pink came together in the workroom and something had to be done. in truth, i was also a little creatively 'lost' at the time. 

i like Little Miss C-W, but despite being smart and beautiful (her, not me) i'm still a bit baffled. she's a bit of an odd-bod. i'm rather hoping that someone - perhaps with a wedding or christening to celebrate - will stumble upon my Folksy shop and Little Miss Cabbage-White will appeal to their Jane Austen-ish well-dressed, pressed and lady-like natures.

about the butterflies:
once I had finished making Little Miss C-W i was worried that she had no memorable sense of humour. happily i discovered Sophie Matthews' gorgeous shop.
