The Best Of – Kimberly Jones


Tattered Collage Lampshade



"This tattered collage lampshade is very dear to my heart! It incorporates so many of the precious bits and pieces I've collected on junking jaunts over the years. The wedding stereoscope cards were a serendipitous find in Texas, the clip on earrings came from one of my favorite antique stores in Tennesee, and the other buttons and baubles were found in charming shops I've visited here and there in my travels. I gathered up all these treasures, my favorite May Arts ribbons, and one of the many shabby lampshades I can't seem to stop bringing home. I wrapped them all together with many dreams and wishes and submitted my idea to the May Arts Design Team challenge. I'll never forget the thrill I felt when I learned that I had been chosen to be a part of the team! I'll always love the lampshade that made my dreams a reality!"
