My sister spends a lot of time in the Bahama's, so I get all my really awesome shells from her scavenger hunts. I decided to take an old beat up lamp and reconfigure it to hold this shell. Once again, a lot of drilling, and wondering why I thought this was such a great plan. But after some manipulating, new electrical guts, and a great shade--here it is!

I made this from a candle holder that I found at TJMaxx. Again, using a drill for-EVER to get through the glass, and a bunch of odds and ends, this is what I came up with. It puts off a great shadow patter on the walls and ceiling at night.
