Lampshade Redone for the Better!

You know, if I'm not really happy with something, I tend to work and rework it until I'm happy. This was the case with one of my lampshades. I stitched the leaves and pink milk glass flowers on it...and concluded it was just missing something. So, after a chat with a dear friend and a visit to one of the best bead shops in the US (The Beadin' Path in Freeport, Maine) I found what would do the trick---shimmery beads stitched into "vines"! So here is the end result, and I'm much happier! I wish I could capture how nice it really looks, but, of course, pictures don't to products justice sometimes. Hope you like how it looks. I'm finally pleased!
