More slipcovers for the commode and a little lamp

I sure hope you all don't get bored with me and my slipcovers.
I had an offer from Salvaged To Sassy for Reclaimed Goods some time ago to sell my things in her shop.  After praying and thinking about it for awhile now, I finally thought "what the heck"...
She does so many wonderful things with the pieces she finds and I love that she opened up her own little shop.  It's close to me so I can pop in and I am really thankful for her generosity!

So, I thought, what would I do?  My slipcovers!  There would be no competition between her and I  (I definitely don't want to step on any toes since it's her shop) I pulled out the sewing machine yet once again.

I made another commode cover and added
more ruffles on this one, can ya tell?
And do you see the little lamp?

She's (and yes, all of my lovlies are "she's")so lovely with the shade slipcovered!  I tell ya...I absolutely adore slipcovered shades!

I've made pillows, valances and am planning on making a few bigger shade covers tomorrow.  Oh is tomorrow.  3 am to be exact...I better get to bed so I can get a few hours of sleep to be able to sew a straight line later.
