Playing with lamps again.....

I don't know why I enjoy taking lamps apart so much! You can use these lamp collage pedestals for so many different things.....

This is my rainy day project (we are getting lots of wind and rain today--hurricane remnants, I think).

I only had one round globe for the pedestals, and I wanted to do them ALL with round globes, but I am trying to stick to the "use what you have" plan, so pickle jars, a cloche and a vase is what I ended up with for this display idea. (The brass lamp will get painted when it quits raining)

I love it! Great idea with the glass domes on the lamp pedestal. And I love how you used so many together! I'll never look at a lamp the same way again.
