Did I live in the 1920's? Lampshade designers DREAM?

I often wonder why I'm so drawn to VINTAGE. After all, my home looks like something out of a 1920's romantic movie. Maybe I was a Flapper girl in the past? I love beaded fringe, fancy fabrics, lace, feather plumes, sequins and anything BLING BLING! "Why?" I ask myself. "Why did I just fall into making ROMANTIC LAMPSHADES all thoses years ago?" What a passion I still have for them today! I've made over 300 so far......here are some of my latest.
