Look! I'm so excited!!!
I posted this lamp (below) on my tumblr a while ago, because it really is super awesome. Unfortunately, the price was way out of my range (as is a pack of gum, so I'm not dissing the wonderful Tas-ka):
Totally wonderful lamp covered in paper cranes...Look at it when it's lit!:
So, of course I love it, and I said on my tumblr "Do you think if I threw a bunch of paper cranes at a lamp it would look this good?" Well, it turns out, it will!
Look what super-smart Ingrid from the Netherlands did: she threw a bunch of paper cranes at a lamp, and it looks better than the Tas-ka one, if you ask me!!!
Don't you agree?! I'm so getting busy, pronto. I know just the lamp in my house that needs some love, and it's coming, little lamp...it's coming!
Yay, Ingrid! (She has a blog!) I'm so excited!
***p.s. Sweet Ingrid sent me a note saying that she simply used an existing lampshade, glueing with a glue-gun right on to it. Each lamp takes about 350 cranes, and she has made three lamps in all, giving two to family members! Wow. So cool!
