I love Elaine Gustafson. She has been a customer since we opened our doors. She is always doing a fun home dec project. She came in and made beautiful table napkins for a friend, she has made throw pillows and now she made these two lamps. She had a great idea. She had some fabric left over from some curtains that she had made. It is a lace type fabric.
Here’s one of the many things that we’re going to be showing at Blitzen. Being who I am, I made this a lot larger than your typical mug rug. I hate mug rugs. I think they’re stupid. Who is going to run around and say “I need my mug rug so that I can drink my coffee”? Have you ever thought of that? But this one makes perfect sense. The
