Before and After

On our last vacation in Maine Andy and I stopped at a little junk shop in Limerick.  This lamp was there and just had to come home with us.  She survived the trip back in the car and has sat in my craft room.  Perhaps feeling a bit neglected and desiring a little make over. Her faded and dented shade a reminder of style choices that could have been a bit better.   

Here she is newly dressed

What lady doesn't look good in a little black dress? 

What happened to the knitting?  I thought this was a knitting blog!  A little taste of what's been going on and off the needles:

Ive also carded an entire fleece since January 1 and hope to have it spun by the last day of January!  Pictures to come on that. 



  1. My CPW is from that shop in Limerick! Small World.

  2. Wow that is a small world! Were you visiting or just passing though?

  3. Another amazing transformation! What a chic lamp for a chic spinner. And how about Andy all decked out in knitting love?! He's a lucky man. ;) Keep going, your fleece will be gorgeous yarn in no time! xo
