~ Pink Inspiration ~


Hi friends
I took a few photos today of my antique lampshades and millinery hat that I recently dyed with Rit dye.
I was inspired by my talented friend Tausha's blog Simply Me . Tausha uses Rit dye on alot of her linens and lampshades and they turn out so beautiful.


The antique lampshades were a drab cream colour before.
I think they're so much prettier in pink.



I bought some fresh flowers which just happen to be the same shade of lovely pink


~ Thanks for the inspiration Tausha ~

I just added a few vintage Shabby Chic items to my Etsy Shop today too..
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!! 
xo,
Rachel
