    the lamps are indeed pretty cool. they look like an upside down jar with a fitted crocheted mesh wrapped around it. there’s a lot of possibility there!

    I would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to have the pattern for the jar lamps! It appears that there once was a link to a Google Site for Ms. Marin Hood (possibly with the patterns), but it is either now defunct or has been changed and Recyclart hasn’t updated the page. Can someone please help? Thanks!
