I love your style! Also, wish I could crochet. Your projects are fabulous.


What a pretty project!


Hi, this is the first time I have posted. I love your lampshade. I have several "horrid" plastic lampshades that could do with this lovely makeover. Can you tell me what paper you used? Is it decoupage paper? What glue do you use?

Oh WOW!!! Lucy that IS a ripper!! That is trually BEAUTIFUL. I had not seen this post .. I noticed it in photos of that part of your house and thought it looked crocheted! .. And why not? Haha I'm going to be doing a crochet shade soon.
But when you turn your light on doesn't that just look amazing. Well done girl x

Hello. I was just introduced to your beautiful work. I love everything you do!!!! Your work is a ray of sunshine in my gloomy day. We are in the midst of winter here in Nebraska. Your color combinations are so beautiful. I thought your lampshade was fabric!!! I also enjoy that you do so many different types of crafts. I will mark you as my favorite and visit often. I may even try some of your projects myself. Thanks for bringing the sunshine back today. Jeanine

Fantastic work and very inspiring. I have added a link to this blog on our Decopatch Facebook page. Feel free to add a link to: Country Love Crafts FB page and Decopatch FB page at any time (the Decopatch FB page has two children behind the large tree). Keep crafting ... you're good at it!


Your article made my day delightful and really helpful. Do you know why? I ordered custom lampshades for my living room with an animal print, that was match for my carpet from http://jovin.com. Their design was fabulous. But now, you give me a great idea for my old antique lamp stands, that hiding in my closet. With your tips I can make my own!


I have been reading pages and pages of your blog tonight....I'm positively bleary eyed and must go to bed, but I'm addicted. Your shade is marvelous, and all your projects so inspiring!


I just love your blog and the lamp. What a "crafty" person you are and an inspiration to us all. Susan

Hi Lucy,
I found your bolg when I had to move away from home family and friends and the job I loved, teaching Jr Kindergarten in Sunny Calif to Snowey South Dakota in the dead of winter. Your bolg blessed me so much and helped me get through hard times. I loved your crochet help and hearing about you and your family. Photoes are beautiful too! I think you would love this sight for childrens toys patterns. Amigurumi. It's lionbrand.com.
Type Amigurumi in the "Describe what you want" search bar.
God blessed us with a job back home again and I found out I am going to be a grandma!!!
Thank you and Blessings to you and your family!!!
