I can't even handle the new Free People's Call of the Wild June 2011 catalog. My jaw literally dropped when I saw these images. They're so freaking styled and sexy. I love the crazy, tangled hair adorned with baubles and feathers. (There's a how-to video if you're feeling daring.) Here's to a summer full of tribal print, crocheted frocks, beads and feathers!

Finding a great lamp shade can be tricky. I'm always drawn to the embellished ones with lots of texture and interest, but they are usually not in my budget. Then there is the whole size and shape factor. I may stumble across a shade at the thrift store that is the perfect fit but it's an awful shade of pink or the fabric is tattered. 

I started doing some research about revamping old shades and what materials work best, and I discovered the countless options and designs that can be created with felt! It is an inexpensive material with a great deal of structure and visual interest. I absolutely loved this shade featured on design*sponge. It is such a cute and clever way to spice up an old lamp.

So if you're looking for something crafty to do this Saturday and you have a shade that needs a makeover, sign up for the Ruched Felt Lamp Shade Craft Lab. You can find out more information and view the class calendar here
