Ruffled lampshade

I decided to add a little bling to my lampshade.  I am trying to make my bedroom more romantic looking.  I added a ruffle to the top of the shade and ten made a ruffled rosette to the middle and then added a vintage brooch to the center.  Something little, but really made a difference.

My Valentine Mantle

I am starting to do a little Valentine decorating.  I don't do much but I like to fill my jars and put a couple of banners out.  I put this heart banner on my mantle.  I ordered this off of Etsy through a very talented lady.   I love the pastel colors in the banner and the way she has it held together with silk ribbbon.  The images are vintage images that are so sweet.

Sweater Vases

I was wondering what to put in my vases for the Winter.  And while I was Pinteresting :)  I came across sweater vases.  This could not have been a more easy craft to do and fun.  I had a sweater that had a couple of hole in the shoulder and was going to throw it away or make a pillow out of it.
  I decided to cut the sleeves off and use them on my vases, I love them.  They seemed a  little bare and I knew they just needed some bling.  I used two vintage brooches that I had.  Glued them on and tied some jute string around the middle. 

Here they are on the mantle, I havn't decided wether I am going to tie a bow or just tie the jute around.  So for now I did one of each.
