tiny lampshade...before and after

as I am sorting and pricing and purging...I am finding a project or two is calling out to me...
I have 4 of these mini lampshades that I have always meant to do something with...
so...
I got out the vintage wallpaper and the vintage crepe paper...



I really am sorting as I go...


so I am still having the preview sale a week from today, 6 pm...


but I am thinking that I might have to keep these mini shades...


did the "after" turn out cute? Or am I delusional in thinking that it is adorable? Somehow, I am just not sure...
opinions? be honest...I can take it...the lampshade is about 4" tall...I am thinking I went too over the top...
???

Perfect for a little cottage table! I love the crepe paper trim with ribbon and that vintage wallpaper is tres chic! An old book and a cup of hot tea with a crumpet sitting by the lamp and you have the perfect setting for a rainy day afternoon!
