It's my Mad-Hatter Lamp!
First we acquire a zillion pieces of china and tea-ish stuff...
I always do things in bulk...always.
 Then, patiently drill holes with a diamond bit...
we didn't break any dishes, but it drained the batteries on 
the drills that we had to recharge after ever 4 dishes or so...
 Here's the pile of ceramic, china, glass
and pottery plugs we drilled out...
{I'm saying "we" because my sis-in-law is my sidekick}
Then the fun part...we thought!
Deciding which pieces we like together!
 Which turned out hard because they looked ridiculous 
all multi-colored and freaky...
So we opted to paint them first...then decide.
Mostly neutral lamp...so we did glossy white...
Teapots charcoal...except mine, I did Global Blue!
 Then I applied a super awesome flourish vinyl
cut with my Silhouette.
And the intricate wiring of the lamp
and PRESTO!  I did it!
 I love it so much!  I am freakin awesome!
 You know you want one.
I'll keep that in mind, as I've got 5 more to finish up!
Thanks for looking!
If you have some time, you can tell me how awesome I am!
