I've also made a few ATC's and posted them on my Flickr acct. This one was an experiment with embossing velvet, and it just grew from there. The rose is one that The Hub gave me several years ago that I pressed in a book.
Anyway, the socket was broken, the wiring was frayed, and it was FILTHY. The brass was all tarnished (and I hate brass anyway). So I picked up a wiring kit for it (YES, I REWIRED A FRIGGIN' LAMP!! AND IT WORKS!! I'm so pleased with myself!), painted the base, cleaned it up, and put in some of my seashells. I still need a shade for it, but I love my "new" lamp!
