Announcement    Dusk - love that time of evening...when my nightlights go on :) I use the 6 hour battery votive candle in mine on my mantel so that it's on when I need it. AND my little beauties are on sale right now...10% off your favorite one!

Welcome to THE ILLUMINATED COTTAGE! Inside there are unique handcrafted table lampshades that will fit easily into your special spot. They are a touch of Vintage mixed with a Boho/ Art Deco vibe. To coordinate, I designed a line of night lights in beautiful shapes. My night lights are mini fabric and sparkle creations - with a nod to the lamp shades but with a different story. Come and see what's pretty in Pink, White, Black, White, Blue or Green inside! You can search by color or use my handy categories as listed.

Have your own lamp base already? All shades can be purchased without the base. Please send me a message.

Also in the shop-
Centerpieces:
Bird cages with different types of scenes - Fairy garden, Fall and Winter
Wire shoe forms filled with micro lights and floral arrangements,
Glass globe vases filled with flowers and micro lights as centerpieces.

On Etsy since 2019

I'm a blend of Vintage, Victorian and Bohemian

My sewing journey started at 7 years old… Thanks to my mom, who made our Halloween costumes, I became interested in the design and process of making clothes. I made mine, hers, and had the best dressed Barbie dolls😊

By 18 I had my own custom sewing business for local clients. My true passion surfaced while working with a designer friend in Greenwich Village at his new fantasy dress shop. Delicious ball gowns were created with dream wedding dresses for shop windows, fashion shows and awestruck clients. It was all to be inspiration for future adventures.

Having always loved the elegant drama of silk covered - fringed lamp shades from the turn of the last century, I bought a vintage lampshade frame at an auction to try my hand at re-covering it. I had a dress style in mind that I thought would look great as a lampshade. It did! That started a new direction for my passion with shape and form.

These larger frames led to matching tiny night lights. Contacting my frame maker with drawings of my small night light shapes, I opened up this fun new market.

I worked in the production end of fashion for my career which spanned 30 years as a product developer and technical designer. There, I learned the process of creating all kinds of apparel products and got to travel the world visiting factories to learn the nuts and bolts of an apparel brand.

Now many years later, I’m making doll-size clothes for The Illuminated Cottage… the circle has completed.

Thanks for reading…
