Victorian Farmhouse Tutorial


Bonjour from Campagne Maison



I ran upon this gorgeous moth hiding under a bush during some yard work recently. It was
very large and colorful, I couldn't resist taking a picture!



If you ever wanted to cover a lampshade, you must check out this blog.


She shows some of the antique lampshades that she has covered and gives some very detailed information. Be sure to tell her that I sent you over!

Thanks for stopping by the farmhouse this morning. We love having company.

Au revoir,

Your gypsy moth is just beautiful. I love these big moths, they remind me of Victorian velvet patterns. Sea Witch
