It's adorable! How about some Sugarville-type details around the base? Glitter, vintage flowers, etc.

I say fix the pom poms and leave the rest. It is just so quaint and cute the way it was made. I miss being young. lol

I have no clue. That's one thing I've always loved about you--that you can see the possibilities where most would see junk. I can't wait to see what you decide to do with it!

I love you!

Those little ones in the basket are screaming, "Gimme some sugar!"

Maybe something that looks like lush grass on the base? It's super cute :)

Perhaps some bunting? The basket could do with a bit of a jazz up so I think some little bunging flags around the edge or up the strings could be festive. I would like to hear Alfredo's ideas for a couple of new hats for the riders and what will they be taking along for snacks on their ride?

That's so cute, I would weave some ribbon through the basket to make it prettier!

How unique is that lamp! I think new pom poms will make it quite well!

Love the sweet lamp as is (well, adding new pom poms would be good)...my niece had that lamp when she was a baby and she is 40 yrs old now.
