recycled lampshade - bird cage - mobile



inspired by the lampshades in 
"Granny Chic"
by bloggers Dottie Angel and Ted and Agnes

i wanted to make one since i first saw one on Dottie Angel's blog
it is such a happy sunshiney piece.

i'm now scouring the charity shops for more ratty old lampshades to recycle!
