August, August, August! Its that time! Time to start thinking about coming back inside, perhaps you're considering a new palette or maybe just adding the final touches. Anyway, August is definitely the time my lampshade business gets busy! Designers have been working with their clients and are now ready for the accessories. We begin to select the frames, fabrics, trims and embellishments...... with our goal of completion.......the Holidays and events to be!
Here is a shade I just finished using Printed Treasures pima cotton. The images are from The Botanical Fine Arts Weekly published in 1894. Wild Flowers of America.
