Making it light.



Miss Elizabeth from Creative Breathing helped make a connection with the super talented Meri from Imagimeri's Creations.  Meri contacted me and offered up some fabric for my Irmi lamp gone wrong.  (see below)  Out of the blue swatches of fabric just appeared in the mail...with my choice made...Meri sent it my way.    She also sent so many sweet tuck ins I can't wait to get started on a new gadget case to show them off.  Anyway...I cannot begin to tell you how much better this lamp looks.  Thank you Meri!


Remember this?  It was too yellow.  Just not sweet enough or buttery enough.  


Meri to the rescue. 

Meri has so much talent she shares with everyone.  Her blog is such a happy place to visit.   You will not believe her clay creations and vintage shadow box treasures.  

 Insert yellow polka dot in the perfect butter cream.


Yellow pom pom trim from the first time around.  White crochet trim around the top for contrast.  Then I noticed the felt features on the lamp base and decided to bring them up to the shade.  The brim of the conductors hat is blue felt and the children are holding out felt hankies.  I knew when I was done it felt like it was finished.


While I was working with my lamp the second time around...I noticed this white box on the bottom.  That little dog just happens to spin.  Its a working music box.  How cute!  Who knew...not me?
This was a sweet connection for sure.  Thank you Elizabeth for working your magic.  
Thank you Meri for your generosity...this fabric made the light!

Hi Renee,

I've been out of town, but wow, it turned out perfect. I'm so glad I was able to help, and I do hope you are able to use the rest of the fabric I sent you. Please let me know if I can ever help in another one of your lovely projects....you're so talented, and it's an honor.

Big Hugs,
Meri
