Bud vases turned into little lamps...

I took bud vases (you can find a ton of them anywhere) and drilled a hole in the bottom and then inserted cord and rewired the light on. It's a great little light...the bulb part is siliconed into place because if you don't it can't hold itself straight. The first one is mounted on an old plate (I added feather fringe around the shade to dress it up) and the second is mounted on a piece of mirror that I had around.
