Love it. Exactly as pictured. Rachel was excellent with all the communications regarding the size options and in her updates as to how my shade was progressing once I finally decided what I wanted. Post sale service was impeccable. Highly recommend.

Picked these up in Queenscliff yesterday, I just know they with transform into beautiful lampshades for children's rooms. 2 books should be enough to cover 4 shades. Stay tuned...!
One extremely long piece of pianola paper. Easy to wrap around a large shade? No!! But it can be done
...carefully. This custom order, a work in progress is a 30x40cm shade to go on a standing lamp.

It all started a little by accident...

My favourite pastime is going through Opp Shops and Second-Hand stores and my passion for recycling and re-purposing items goes way back...

These things all led to an accidental discovery that recycled sewing patterns look really impressive when decoupaged on to lampshades. From there I have branched out into all manner of vintage papers and other designs.

Thanks for stopping by my store, let me know if I can assist you in any way.
