My Junk Lamp

I made this "junk lamp" last month and sold it at my first craft show.  I used wire to crochet around the edge of the shade. I was just winging it and that came to mind. I used a screw on lamp kit on a jar filled with misc. junk pieces, wrapped a piece of scrap leather around the lid, and secured that with baling wire.
