Rags to Riches Lampshade Trim

You have surely seen many times over strips of rags turned into spectacular items. Christmas Balls, a  Garland, Welcome home signs enhancement, rugs, Wreath so many things. 

I had four Batten-burg Lace Napkins all starched and Ironed. 
 So why not make something with them!

Rags (Napkins)

Tied on to Lace

 Such a simple project but oo la la...
Tied on to this Lampshade..

 I cut strips and tied the strips to another piece of Lace along with some extra pieces of lace included into it to give more interest.  
Now a New trim for my lamp.   I love it! 
 It is the simple things in life!

I went to a great Party:

Spilling the Beans... Acknowledgement!!

Some time ago I wrote about my father which I met when I was about twenty One year old.

Not looking like my family I was always wondering why?  Until I finally got the answer when I was twenty one. 
 Time went by and I found out I had half sister and another brother.  Due to circumstances my dad did not want his family to know. So I waited..
And waited and waited...  Lots of birthdays, two children, three grandchildren have been born.
But the wait is over... As of October 2014 My dad finally told his family.   I got to meet my brother and bitter sweet his age 52.  Mine... a little bit more..You didn't really think I would say my age out loud  did you.. You can add all the numbers I gave and get the age if you need too.   My half sister hasn't come around, I get the sense that, it is probably not going in that direction with her.   But, that is okay!
So Nice to be Acknowledged!!!!
