Here is a lampshade I made from a discarded lampshade frame and my backyard curly willow tree. It sits on an old converted kerosene floor lamp that belonged to Mr. B.'s grandmother. It was given a coat of copper and verdigris and is very pretty on the back porch. If you look closely, you will see that I found little round bulbs for it...they kind of look like eggs. The handmade bird finial was the perfect touch. Making finials for lamps is very simple to do. In the last picture I have used an  odd salt shaker with no mate, isn't the frog adorable, holding a doll?
