Barbara has been shunned by the Shetland crewe on a crisp, white lampshade. Hand made with humour on a small Scottish island.
Black Barbara and Crew Shade and Base Combo.
- A perfect gift for all craving or indeed living "the good life". This quirky shade has been hand crafted on the small Scottish island of Lismore where we live. Our inspiration comes from our rogueish flock of Shetland sheep, of which Barbara is one. Notice her particularly fetching gold ear rings(tags - shh!) However, we think the Shetland crew may be giving her a wide berth because of them. Jealous perhaps? We use a combination of photographic transfer, scribbled lines and stitched details and each animal image begins life as a humble pencil drawing. The base fabric is a crisp, white cotton sateen. We can envisage this shade sitting equally well surrounded by old books and weathered velvet in some country pile or adding quirk and humour to a sparcely decorated, modern pad.
