Shabby Chic Touch-Up

 
                                   I bought this pillow this week from the Shabby Chic line at Target.
                                    The sham behind it is from one of Rachel Ashwell's boutiques.

Here is a better close-up of the sham. The lamp is from Pottery Barn.
The quilt and matching sham are from an outdated on-line source.

                                                    That's my pink rose from my garden.

The balloon shade I bought this week from the Shabby Chic line at Target.
The vintage print I found at Country Roads Antiques in Orange,
California.

I saw your beautiful new pillow when I was cruising by the RA aisle at Target. (Which I always do when I'm there.) Love it! I'm such a sucker for pretty linens. Your bed looks luscious!

I love the idea of having a single rose sitting by your bed. I might just borrow that idea and wake up to instant beauty every day.

Love your pretty finds. Sorry I haven't been around for a while. Just noticed you have a Paris story below which I am about to read.

As for and answer to your question
My conversion book says 400g is 14oz. So about 2 cups I'd say. As you can see from the shot, I've covered the bottom of a large pie dish with fruit. I would have used about 2.5 cups this time, but next time I will use 2 cups I think. With this dish the fruit quantity is negotiable, the batter quantities are more important, for in baking, they should be as exact as possible.
Hope this helps.

Hi, everything looks amazing, so sweet!!! Love the style. I also bought the ballon shade at Target, but have no idea in how to place it. There is no instruccions or anything, it's just the plain fabric. Do I need more material so it actually looks like ballon shape? How did you do it?
