I love the look of a coffee filter lampshade, having seen it all over Blogland I decided to do it myself.
What a job. I took each filter, folded it in half, half again, and then half again. I did not touch the rippled edge, but creased the bottom each time I folded, and glued the bottom portion (which was a large long diamond) on the shade. I used an ikea shade which is very large.
It adds texture to the room, demands attention, and looks a bit like a cake full of beautiful icing. This is a job that is well worth the time and effort.

Globe from Wellington Gift and Garden that I am a little obsessed with.

I love white and adore my white couch but I have a black and white cat and a teen. We practically live on the couch and I find cleaning the cushions is a pain - mostly the zippers and fitting them back on. The easiest way to look clean with minimum fuss was to cover the cushions with a favourite tablecloth.
It works well and keeps my white couch looking vibrant and beautiful.
I love my whites.
