How cool is this idea??? We lived in a huge four square Sears home for several years and when we moved to The Olde Farmhouse I had no place for this beautiful stained glass lampshade. It has been sitting around collecting dust and driving me batty! I just couldn't find a place for it and couldn't part with it either. I pride myself in re-use of all things if possible but this just takes the cake! I had this bird feeder which gets wet when it rains and the critters can gain access to it so I strung a wire up through the shade and voila! A critter proof birdfeeder that is beautiful too! I think it's very lovely. I plan to make some stained glass lampshades only a bit smaller and sell them as toppers for feeders such as this. If you would like to custom order one, just say the word! I think this idea rocks! With gratitude, Laurie B.
