Finishing Touches

The French have such a way with trims!.If you look at all the names they have for trimming, you realize how important this finishing touch is!

Soutache….Passementerie…..Bobbles & Pompoms….Bullion Fringe….Ombre Ribbons

Tassels, I could go on & on with Delectable names…. I found an old lamp and torn shade at a flea market last summer, and the hunt for trim began! Here is the result……….

This created a minor frenzy as I realized that there were many uses for left over trim, and now we are busy adorning pillows, using tassels for Armoire knobs, attaching keys to tassels, and generally creating feminine mayham!
