...let it be ~ covered in lace!

...hello dear ones

my mind is swirling and twirling,
as it often does when I'm working in the studio.

but today was dreary out,
and all I keep singing over and over in my mind
was a Beatles song
"let it be"
not really sure how it popped into my brain,
but it's stuck
and it's playing over and over on repeat!!!

one line sticks...

~ and though your troubles may be heavy...
let it be, 
let it be!!

let it be you say?


I delve into my creative space
with these words of wisdom,

letting it be...

(yes, I can follow directions ~ sometimes ~ maybe ~ if I choose too!!)

and I got to thinking,

what if  ~
I could blanket the world


maybe that's a little unrealistic
( please, PLEASE don't call me out on this,
as I know myself, and couldn't resist the challenge!!)

but it's the way my brain works!
start with the extreme
and work down to a place I think I can manage...

bet you can't tell what material
I've been working with this week ~ LOL!!

last night, when I finally slunk-ed into bed,
((is slunk-ed even a word?? I think that's what the Grinch did in who ville))
any ~ WHO!!!
as I was saying,

there was lace stuck in my hair!!
not even kidding!!
I guess I really throw myself into things!!

would you like to see a few of these lace pretties??!

here is a light shade make over 

this was very gratifying,
 I RIPPED off the pre-existing shade,
and just made a little lamp shade skirt!!
added a few velvet blossoms, a fairy and

I whipped up a fresh batch of french fairy dollie skirts...

love the way they look hanging off my grunged rose petal ribbon
and I'm really excited about finishing this ~
another fairy light concept,
a fairy ball chandelier!!

I envision it in my dearest mom's farmhouse kitchen!!
I can't wait to get it lite so I can see the lacy pattern thrown all over the walls!!! 

stitching, stiffening,
and day dreaming of how it will look when it is done...

(tee, hee ~ see my needle??)

it is a real work of "heart"!!!
(I blame it on the mod podge!!)
I'm just giddy with excitement!!

I hope she likes it...

I think I may have to make another,
as I have fallin' in love with it :)
and am already dreaming up little ones too!!

what do you think??

I'll be sharing this over at Faded Charm's White Wednesday
I wonder if there are any doilies over there???
I need more ~ lots more!!

hugs and squeezes!!

here's to fairies and letting it be!!


  1. "Speaking word's of wisdom let it be." Great lace...I love it. My children tease me that I have to alway's have doilies. Have a great day.

  2. Rosemary, I always enjoy your uplifting posts! I DO wish we could blanket the world in lace. So glad to hear you are up to your ears (and hair) in it, and letting the creating 'be'.
    Happy ww,

  3. This is such a sweet post. The lace shade is so pretty. Do you cut the crochet pieces, layer them over each other or use scrap pieces? Hope I'm not being too nosy.

  4. I think I like the idea of covering the world with lace....it would certainly be s lovely place..wouldn't it!! (O:



  5. That shade is darling-- I'm working on a similar project myself. I haven't gotten this far yet, (but this is what I have in mind)-- I'm having to revamp (ie;paint) the lamps first.

  6. Loving all your projects...especially the french fairies!

    Happy WW!
