Shabby Chic shade bargain...and an Award!

I love the combination of pink and creamy white!

So when I spotted this lampshade at The Christmas Tree Shop last month, I was very tempted... Such sweet pink trim, and the prettiest scallops at the top and bottom...

It's a nice big shade, perfect for a floor lamp, so when I spotted the $4.99 price tag I snapped it up in a hurry!

It's perfect for the reading lamp next to the living room wing chair.

And I also received an "I Love Your Blog" award from Shirley at Plum Bush Cottage! Thank you, Shirley! You should check out Shirley's blog (great decorating ideas and recipes!!)

I have linked back to Shirley's blog and now I'm supposed to list seven other blogs that I LOVE - but that's so difficult! I love so many, and for such a variety of reasons! So I'm going to pass on handing out the award; instead I want to tell all of you whose blogs I read that "I love your blog!!!". I don't always have time to leave comments (I need time management tips from some of you), but I do take the time to visit and I so enjoy your posts, photos, recipes, information, tips, kids and pet stories, decorating ideas, and so much more! I've sometimes had tears in my eyes after reading certain posts, while other posts make me wonder if I've reached the "Depends" age because I laugh so hard! So thank you to all of you who share your talents and your lives through your blogs!!!

Donna I love all your chenille throws. I have many and change mine all year round.
I have loved them for some time now.
Thank you for the lovely comment. You made my night. It's 2:30 and I still can't sleep.
I'll give it one more go.
