My lamps.....

Does Labor Day Weekend mean you're suppose to labor all weekend.  I have so many tasks on my agenda including finishing my big cabinet that I've had to put off because of the heat.  It is painted but parts need a second coat & then to the waxing.

The doors have been removed.  Someone had added these & they just didn't look right.  I've painted it with Annie Sloane's chalk paint (old white) & now I'll wax and make it look old.  It's going to be gorgeous (if I do say so myself).

These are the pumpkins I've been working on.  I dyed some fabric orange and love the final product.
Along with these, I've finished a bunch of heating pads.  My idea for doing a blog follower's give-away is to put in a heating pad, some of my chai tea, & a couple of my battery candles.  You must be a follower of my blog to win but I always get tons of names but I pick names until I'm certain you're a follower.  If you've never used one of my heating pads, they are the greatest.  Oh, the give-away will be held at Leola's Fall Open House that will be on Sept. 8 (evening), 9, 10 & 11.  I'll post later the exact prize.

These are two of my lamps.  I did the wiring myself and have checked them out and they work perfectly.  Don't know what I'd do without my neighbor who put the hole through them and my True Value Hardware guys who answer any dumb questions I throw at them.  Also, the plaid shade I made (sorry that the seam shows) & I'm thinkin' I might get a larger shade for the stained lamp.  Doesn't it look a little small?

Anyway, back to work for me.  Phoebe is coming to spend the day & night.  Today is to be in the 70's (yea) so I can finish the cabinet.  Hope you all have a wonderful holiday weekend.

I love your pumpkins! And that first shade does look a little small but the end results of your lamps project are beautiful! Have fun with Phoebe. The 70's sounds fabulous! Best wishes, Tammy
