My lamps arrived and while I haven't tried a bulb in them yet, they are really beautiful!
Now, on to the business of shades. I found straight cylinder shades at lampsplus.com. They are 8" diameter, and 11" long. Here is my paper mock-up:
Marc and I can't decide if we like it or if it is too small. The only other option I can find is a tapered drum that is 14-15" in diameter and 14" wide. We both think that that will be too big and boring. The thing I like about the smaller shade is that it really makes the neck look long and lean. Thoughts?
In other news, Franca is growing like a weed and has mastered crawling forward. The other morning, she crawled right over to this plant I had just brought inside for the winter and proceeded to rip the leaves off! I'd really like to know if this is a toxic plant, but the only description that ever came with it was "Green Plant". This has actually been its nickname for years.
