My Shabby Cottage Lamp Shade

I have oodles of vintage crochet trims, so I put some to use by covering a lampshade - it was really easy; just use tacky glue to attach in rows, starting at the bottom. At the top edge, I glued some vintage yo-yos made from satin and tulle with mother-of pearl buttons sewn to each center. I love how it turned out. A vintage pink stone jewelry finding is pinned to the side with a pearl corsage pin.
