I have had this cute kitty cat shaped BOTTLE (EDIT: I accidentally said lamp earlier, but initially it was a wine bottle, THANKS Funkenstiens!!) laying around for years and when I heard of this I thought "Ooh this could be a neat lamp." Luckily I know a glass blower who was able to drill a whole in the back at the bottom of the kitty to thread the cord through!  Hope you like!
Light on:

I made the shade by the very tedious process of peeling apart Cat People Tarot Cards and Modge Podgeing them onto a shade I bought from WalMart:

Here are some close ups of the shade:

I consider it an early birthday present to myself (as my birthday is May 5!)  Thanks for looking!  Tongue

Haha that is awesome XD

And the lamp looks EXACTLY like this bottle of wine my brother gave me for Christmas:


Must have been the same glass mold!

Wow, I actually own those Tarot Cards. I find it odd to see them pasted onto a lamp. I find it a little distasteful, as seeing that they are Tarot Cards and while some people use them for fun, they should be respected. But you did a good job on the lamp. ^__^

Beautiful end result!

It is so classy! I love it. Very unique. The tone of light it gives off is really neat as well.

Sorry Dragon Rhapsody, I understand what you mean though, my friend said the same thing, I didn't mean to offend anyone though.

And Chironelle, yes!  It is the same wine I believe, when I bought it there were several different colors of bottles for different types of wine.  I am sad because I don't think they make it anymore.

Everyone thanks for your comments and birthday wishes!  Smiley  And happy birthday PhunkyThreads!
