Doilies and Hankies and Lace....Oh My!

Happy Spring everyone!
You know all those vintage hankies, doilies and lace remnants 
that generous friends keep giving me?
Ever wonder what we do with them here at 
The Empty Nest? 

We cut them up and restyle them into wonderful, cottage style, one of a kind beauties.

They are so beautiful with the lights turned on...it diffuses so softly.
All the lamp bases got a makeover also using 
Chalk Paint® decorative paints by Annie Sloan
Easiest way I know to transform an outdated lamp base into something special.
These and other handcrafted lovelies are looking for a forever home at 
The Empty Nest
There is always something new and beautiful to look at in the shop.
Come visit, I promise you will not be disappointed.
