Let BYGONE REFLECTIONS light up your life!

Sylvia Racine has been creating her unique cut and pierced paper lampshades for over fifteen years and now calls Cambridge, Ontario her home. Each shade is handcrafted, delicately painted or unpainted, with particular attention given to detail. Giving old bases a new look by creating a custom made lampshade is one of her specialties. Sylvia paints using the technique called 'reverse painting'. This means that the lampshade is painted with a light wash from the inside...and only when the light is turned on, can one see the beautiful glow of the various colours.

As always Sylvia carries a large selection of lampshade supplies for cut & pierced, victorian and country fabrics; lamp bases including hurricane, mason and basket electrical adapters and of course lampshade kits for every skill level.

Sylvia has a wonderful country booth in the St Jacob's Farmers’ Market. Hours for the Market are 7:00 AM - 3:30 PM, Thursdays and Saturdays and 8:00 AM - 3:00 PM on Tuesdays during July and August. She carries a complete line of cut and pierced lampshades (including hurricane, clip, bridge and washer top) and matching lamp bases; ecclectic country giftware and a bountiful cache of antiques including one of her favourite collectibles...vintage bobbins. Country connoisseurs know that they can always find a good selection of reproduction enamelware; primitive and country angels; vintage tins and lots of unique retro kitchenware. Crochet rugs are in! Bygone Reflections carries a vast selection of fabric and finished rugs for every taste. Fabric colours can also be reserved by calling or e-mailing ahead of your visit to the St. Jacob’s Farmers’ Market. This "little store" is a must see when visiting Waterloo County. Sylvia will again be in Ottawa's best show from November 4th to November 8th 2009 (November 3th to November 7th 2010). Always feel free to call her for location updates.

Sylvia is now a distributor for the company ‘Hooked on Rugs’. Beautiful handcrafted crocheted rag rugs, made out of mill end fabric rolls, can now be purchased, along with the necessary fabric, pattern book and crochet hook to make your own. Courses are $60.00 and include 4 pounds of fabric, book, hook and a two hour lesson.

Bygone Reflections has again started giving lampshade workshops. The total cost is $60.00 and includes everything to make a beautiful cut and pierced lampshade. Please call to hear about upcoming dates.
