swag baby

This weeks Thrift Thursday, I wanted to share with you something I was very inspired by that I picked up on a recent thrifting trip. Macrame books and mags from the 70's are literally a dime a dozen, and I don't usually pay too much attention to them - preferring to find a finished vintage project. Lately though, I've been looking for some interesting lighting options for our home beyond the simple white glass globes or other popular mid century options.  Enter "Swag" Lampshade Book.

When I browsed through this instructional how to of macrame swags - my imagination ran wild. I want to make one, two, three! They're gorgeous!

There were also ones shaped like football helmets and acoustic guitars, but I saved you from that 70's silliness...your welcome. Which one is your favorite? Mine is Florentine Elegance. Have you ever tried to macrame anything beyond a hemp bracelet (totally my very first venture into independent business circa 1997).
