diy idea | French Cafe Curtain

In my last kitchen I would have had the perfect place to put this darling french cafe curtain over my sink. Sadly I can't think of a place for it in my new dwelling place, but maybe you have a perfect spot for it?

Stop on by Musings of a French Cottage for step by step instructions and be sure to browse around...lots of great ideas!

diy idea | Flash Card Lampshade

Since I'm still on my lampshade kick I thougth I would share another easy to make lampshade idea. Didn't take step by step pics as usual but I'm sure you can get the idea.

You will need:
1 Round or drum type shape Lampshade
24 (or so) flash cards
24 (or so) Mini Clothespins...can be found at larger Joann Fabrics stores or online here.

So you could be all technical about it and measure the spacing around your lampshade but that's not me so I simlpy started clipping around the base first and then around the top, alternating as I went to my taste.

And here she is...super easy!!!
