put a pom-pom on it.

the september issue of martha stewart living has the cutest diy feature all about the pom-pom. my favorite has got to be this pendant lamp shade with the sweet, unexpected pom-pom’s dangling from it. so cute, but yet not overly so, wouldn’t you say? i might so far as to say these are quite sophisticated pom-poms, at that! the bedspread below is pretty brilliant as well. i’m reading martha via my subscription on zinio these days, which i’m finding most handy!

    pom poms make everything that little bit more fun and cheerful. the bread spread is the favourite.

    Love the combinations especially the bed spread. I remember making pom poms with my mothers as a child and at the school, good fun and easy to make, I use them for decorating cushions at home. nice photos!

  5. Martha does it again! Such a fun way to add a bit of interest around the house.

    I always think of vintage cafe curtains when I think of pom poms. It’s great to see them used so tastefully in all of these different spaces!

    Love everything! I would do something like this in a heartbeat but my cat would think they are play toys and there would be yarn all over the house!

    Keep sharing!

    I loved the lampshade, too! I was recently wondering if big awesome tassels were the new buntings, then what were the new big awesome tassels? I think the answer is clear: pom-poms!

  11. Loving Martha on Zinio too!
