A Little Bit Of Folly.....A Whole Lot Of Glee!


You just can't beat a bit of Folly, can you?


I've admired the work of Folly and Glee for such a long time now.

So when we decided to update our living room, I contacted Polly, to ask her if she could make some lampshades for my soon to be decorated living room. I fancied some delicious barkclothes......
I sent Polly a picture of my curtains, and asked her to work her magic!
And that she certainly did......


The colours are rich......
This corn barkcloth from the 50s is my favourite, loved it so much I asked her to make me one solely in this fabric.....




Yes, a little bit of Folly.....but so much Glee!
Thank you Polly, I absolutely LOVE them, we all do, even my teenager who dislikes all things vintage!
You'll see more of them over the next few weeks as we finish off our living room.
I'd like to thank you all for your comments on my last post. I loved reading them and hearing your thoughts and views. Lots of food for thought.
Whilst many of us like the relaxed, perhaps more real, 'warts and all' blogs, it's important to realise that for some people, their blog is their job. These blogs need to be professional and more 'polished', after all, we wouldn't want to visit our GPs, if they behaved unprofessionally would we?!
Hello to those of you new's great to hear from you!
I know I've been absent from this little space, but I'm hoping things will settle down soon, be a little less hectic, and I can keep up to date with all the goings on in Blogland!
Bye For Now,
Ada :) xxx



  1. Wow I love them too! I like a nice bit of barkcloth, who'd of thought that corn on the cob could look so bold and great as a pattern!

  2. I love the sweetcorn fabric too! It looks great on the lampshades, and I totally see why you wanted one in just that fabric as well as the other combination ones. I look forward to seeing the finished room when it is ready for sharing with us. xx

  3. I LOVE these lampshades ... and I'm with you on the corn pattern. It looks so funky, and I see your favourite shade of aqua blue is in there too. So looking forward to seeing a revamped living room, how nice to freshen things up! Have a great weekend Ada :) Wendy x

  4. Absolutely Magic ... I love your little bit of Folly!
