New lampshade

One of my best friends passed this lampshade down to me. Isn't it wonderful? I just had to share it with you. I love how the embroidered leaves overlap one another. I think it works perfect in my living room... though I'm no interior decorator. New lampshade!

I thought I would share a random happy decorating discovery. So, months ago, while I was taking down the Christmas tree, I was brainstorming what I could do with the clear glass ornaments that I had filled with moss. I was thinking that maybe they would be cool as a necklace but a little bulky. I thought about taking the metal pieces off of them and displaying them in a decorative bowl. Then, I came across these wooden candlesticks that my mother-in-law passed down to me. I was never successful putting candles in them because all the candles I found were slightly too wide in diameter to fit. So what do I discover... if I flip the glass ornaments over they fit snug into the candlesticks. Ta da!
