Blog Business Cards

Leif has helped me create blog business cards that I can print out at home - on a nice Crane’s card stock. I made the drawing soon after moving into Old Farm. The realtor's listing described it as "an antique picture post card cape house", and I felt the same when I first saw it. Bill likes my cards a lot... swell. 

I cut the cards apart myself on a cutting mat, which is fun, since I don't need so many.

New Shades for Old Lamps

I bought new shades for two old iron floor lamps I found for Old Farm, and made custom fabric covers to fit them. A large pad of newsprint is used to make the patterns.

The above shade has pinched (hand stitched) gathers in the colored stripes. This little barrel shade is from Restoration Hardware.

I was inspired by the hand-made walls, trim, door and nails we found at Old Farm...and I love adding stripes anywhere.
