  16. haha, XUP. I am lighting up my life.

    Thank you all for checking out a small part of my lampshade collection!

    I think the parchment ones are my favourite. Although, Gilly, that grey one is a very cool 1950s fibreglass shade with a matching glass ball on the base. I'll have to do a post on my collection sometime.

  18. I would have sworn the last one was leather- glad you added what they were to the comments. I think the hardest part of this challenge has been figuring out what everyones shots have been. Great job.
