DELIGHTFUL DECOUPAGE


I recently came across some decoupage lamps that I thought were unusually beautiful in a Sister Parish/granny-chic sort of way. I used to have grandiose visions of mastering decoupage, but I never came close to anything like these! (I also once had illusions about being a gardener at an English Country estate, but we will leave that story alone for now...)
I think these would go perfectly on a perky sidetable or nightstand.
Here's Gillian


and Sara


and lastly, Hermione. All are available from a charming cottage industry out of Charlotte, NC that you can check out here.

Did you see, there is an "Anne" - Anne!
Those are really fun. My Mom and I used to decoupage.
How fun.

My Aunt use to work for a wallpaper retailer and when they tosed out all the old books, she would bring them home, and recruit us to cut out flowers, leaves birds you name it for all of her decoupage projects.

I have a decoupage lamp in my bedroom with butterflies on it...and yes, I do like to think of it as chic in a granny chic/Sister Parish sort of way! :) These are all so pretty, such great finds!

It is great to share a love of these artistic and beautiful lamps, not to mention furniture. I have known Susan Carson for many years and have loved seeing her work evolve. I will share my words about her with you here:
