Puttering Around

I've been moving kind of slow the last week. Like that's anything new. hehe

I've been puttering around trying to get some cleaning done. The poor house is such a disaster since my maid quit. haha (No, I didn't have a maid...I'm talking about me)

It seems to take me so long, that by the time I get one room clean, what I did the day before needs to be done again. And I don't even have children in my home!

I did manage to get a couple of little, tiny redos done.

This lamp in my kitchen had a lace shade that I never did really love, so I redid it with this cute pink fabric and some narrow vintage lace. I like it alot better.

And...I put my tissue paper addiction to good use...

...and decoupaged this adorable rose tissue paper on the lids of my canisters. I got this tissue from Elyse in our last swap together.

I think they turned out really cute!

Today is catch-up-on-blogs day... I LOVE YOUR LAMP!! That is just precious!!! Take more pics, I would love to see your pink Kitch...
I think Fall is setting in here, so maybe I can stay inside and do some cleaning too because my maid has not been in the house lately!!!
Oh, and your painting, sweet!!! I am glad you take time to paint, you are really good....

I know what you mean about cleaning ...my Dad used to say it's like stringing pearls with no knot on the end..

LOVE the tissue paper decoupage..I've not done any with tissue paper before - turned out great and I LOVE the lampshade :-)

Your lamp and canister lids turned out so lovely! I putter around a lot myself, thankfully every now and then the deep clean bug bites me and I go to town.

Hope your week is off to a fabulous start.

Wow, Debi, your redos are great. I didnt think that tissue paper could be strong enough for decoupage. Your lids looks lovely. I read the posts above. I hope you have a great time with your sister. Take an extra nap for me will ya??
