New lamp shades……


It’s been a little while since I have bought new lamp shades.

Who knew they could be so expensive?!?!

After I posted pics of the guest bedroom I decided I needed matching lamp shades for the French lamps in there. A lot of the lamp shades I found cost more than I originally paid for the lamps themselves!!!!

A little before to refresh your memory…..

Guset Bedroom 024

The after…..


I found these lamp shades at Hobby Lobby. They were half price so both lamps shades cost the same price as one of the exact same shades on Amazon.

I was worried they would be cheap and flimsy for that price but to my surprise they are very nice!


I love the pleats and the little buttons are a nice detail too…..


Thanks for stopping by to chat!

Remember to stop by again Wednesday evening to join the party!

Peaceful Sunday…..


Chateau Hogemeyer, built around 1750 in Belgium.  Many people have lived here and did some work to it.  The chapel was added around 1860, then all info just stops.  Then in 2001 the “chateau” and attached farm became monuments, but it was abandoned for some time and the weather took its toll.  Some people have tried to save it, however costs are just too high.:


Three things cannot be long hidden:

the sun, the moon, and the truth.

Share Your Style #87

Hello everyone!

Welcome to the 87th Share Your Style Party!  I'm Kelly from The Essence of Home and will be your host this week.  

When you link to this party, your post shows up on all five blogs at once!

Last week, there were some great posts linked up! Here are just a few that I thought I'd feature this week.

Bless'er House shared her modern master bedroom reveal.  It is so pretty!  I love the planked wall and barn door that was added to the space.

Create & Babble shared how to make velvet pumpkins.  I love these!  I need to try my hand at this since they can be so expensive to buy already made.  

Ann's Entitled Life shared an apple cinnamon waffles recipe.  I love waffles and have never had them prepared this way before.  Perfect for Fall!  

If you were featured, please grab this button and add it to your blog sidebar!

Now, onto this week's party!  Be sure and add a link back to this party on the post that you link up.
