PaperDame's Television Debut!

Last year I was given the opportunity to donate a couple of my book lamps to Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. I was contacted by the Senior Design Producer who was interested in including me as one of many contributors who would help in blessing this family in need. What an honor! I immediately shipped out my lamps and then counted down the days til the episode year later! Good things are worth waiting for. You can see the full episode at

Welcome to my shop! I love to create and share my latest novelties with people like you. I'm on a constant hunt for abandoned books and unique inspiration, incorporating natural fibers and repurposed finds in everything sold here. If you are interested in a custom order, I can't wait to hear from you!
