This lamp was inspired by the leg lamp in the movie A Christmas Story. I rescued the plastic leg from my parent's garage sale.  Once I saw it I knew what I had to do.  I drilled a hole in the bottom to thread the lamp kit through. I dresses it in a sexy fishnet stocking. I attached it to a wood base.  The shade was white, so I painted it and hot glued the black fringe on the bottom. My husband found a FRAGILE sign and we stuck it on. "Hmm...It must be Italian."  I made this lamp about 6 years ago.  It stays in our living room year round. 

We are still searching for the right shoe.

One of my favourite movies, your lamp is fabulous!! I really like the table lamp size of it.   My whole family uses "frageelee" all the time, most people have no clue what we're talking about Smiley

That is SO awesome!  I was hoping someone would make one after I saw the dress form lamps.  Grin

your friends ask about me you say I can be found
with the cheap romance novels with their spines battered down
oh the heart has no bones you say so it wont break
but the purpose of loving is the pounding it takes
