|The bunny lamp edition!
|I really do need this device!
Since it has taken me longer than anticipated to get this post out, I will shorten it into a mainly picture format. So grab your carrots and let's get going! Get it? Carrots! Bahahahahahaha!
First off, I'll begin with the before pics of the bunny lamp. I randomly purchased this lamp a couple of years ago while flea market shopping. I don't know why I had to have it, but I just did. Thank goodness I listened to my instincts on that one.
|Cute as a button just as it was!
My initial thought was just to spiffy up the lamp shade. And initially that is exactly what I did. Just an FYI, all the materials I used for the bunny lamp were purchased at Hobby Lobby. And all of them were 50% off! Yep, I like the frugal shopping.

|These are the three embellishments I used for the bottom
|I also used this ribbon in teal for the sides
After embellishing the lamp shade with ribbon, I then noticed the rabbit himself was looking a little dull. At first, I decided he needed a black and white harlequin bow-tie to tie into the other B&W harlequin being used throughout the room.
|Isn't that fab?
|Isn't that better?
Here is one last pic of the first time I finished decorating the lamp.
|It's lovely how the light shines through
Next thing you know, I am once again out in the craft room fiddling with the hot glue gun. This time I decided the shade needed some froo-froo stuff on the front and sides. So, I began positioning various butterflies and dragonflies on all sides. Btw, no two sides are the same, which makes it all that much better! Once I had these pinned into place, I always pin before I glue just to make sure I'm not losing my mind, I decided to add some flowers to each corner and also one each to the top center and bottom center of the sides. This was what I ended up with.
|Pretty cute, right?
|Notice the pinned jewels to your left
|I love sparkles!

UPDATE: Had to add the roses! Now isn't that better?
|Now I'm finished, I promise!
