My lampshade and I say a million times “THANK YOU!” to every single one of you who voted for us as the winner!   It means so very much, especially considering how much  serious competition there was from the other bloggers.   I mean….  did you see all the other gorgeous lamp shades?

And this blue batik patterned lamp shade DIY from Courtney Out Loud? Wow!

Or this beautiful lampshade covered in balsa wood strips by Jaime at C.R.A.F.T? Amazeballs.

    I loved your shade. I have seen and not liked sweaters used like this or as pillow covers, but I guess they just used the wrong (for me) sweaters. Your looks great!
