Lampshade made from doilies

My lampshade is finished and this time I hand sewed doilies all over the wire skeleton. Each one of these antique doilies has a different patina and I love the look of all the different colors of old:) 

I made a large flower out of my antique table cloth (I'm getting a lot of mileage out of that tablecloth!) then I coffee stained a smaller crocheted flower that I bought and glued it in the center. I then glued a pin on the back to attach it to the shade, I like giving people the option of removing the flower if they'd rather have it plain.

Will be for sale at the Country Market!


I would love to hear from my readers, I need input so I can post things that interest you. Questions encouraged:)
