milkmaid1979 writes: Thanks again for the really nice welcome...I really liked this cloche and couldn't find anybody all weekend to get as excited as I was, over it. LOL...so...thank YOU. :-)

And I didn't mention, the finial on top, was a buck clearance at Hobby Lobby. HAD to have them, no idea what to do with them, but it certainly was made for that lamp. ;) Posted: 7:14 pm on September 14th
