Butterfly Lamp - Fly Away With Me Mobile (Part 3)

After being inspired by a  this mobile, I created my own (tutorial here), which eventually evolved into this beautiful Butterfly lamp!  I am so proud of how it turned out, and will probably be making various lamps for my etsy shop soon!

After hanging this in my daughter's room, I got a picture of her basking happily in the warm green light.
I even got a quick picture of her happy view. She loves it & so do I. The light and shadows cast on the walls are very soothing and serene. Hope you enjoy our happy little butterfly lamp.





The way the lamp lit up kind of reminded  me of the jellyfish I saw in Monterrey. 
Which leads me to a future lamp project!  Look familiar?

PS - As I previously mentioned, I will probably have some of these available in my Etsy shop soon.  I may also post a tutorial if you're interested ;) Link Parties where you'll find me.

So beautiful! We're throwing a butterfly b'day for my 2yo this weekend and I'm going to try to recreate the butterfly effect of your lamp only larger and hanging from the tree that shadows our patio. I hope it looks as pretty as your lamp!

I love the light/mobile, and thanks for stopping by to answer your thrift questions

How do you decide when to buy? If I am buying for myself, it's it's something that I need or have been searching for. For others, it's at their request

What do you do with it once you have it? Most times than not they are sold

How do you keep things from piling up around your house? It's hard not to, but most times once I have revamped, things I find are sold

Thanks for stopping by. You can see my guest post on thrift tips here
