Vintage Doilies Lamp

Thursday, January 13, 2011


Shannon made this pendant lamp after collecting vintage crochet doilies for several months. It creates the most beautiful shadow all over the walls and ceiling. Isn't it fantastic? Also, Shannon is planning to add those lamps to her shop, so soon we can all own one of those beauties:) xoxo

P.S: Last night after our dinner (thanks for all the cheese ideas), we went to see "Love and other drugs". I was smitten with Anne Hathaway's curls!
P.P.S: More doily goodness.
