Lily Home: Blossoms at the milkman's daughter

Just as the cherry blossoms started appearing in Victoria, the milkman's daughter received a shipment of porcelain blossoms. I wanted to display them in the front window, but I needed a light fixture that was as delicate and beautiful as them. After much research, I decided to create one from doilies, an exercise ball, and wallpaper paste; it worked! Happy Spring, everyone!

A few customers mentioned the milkman's daughter was missing something--a large branch, perhaps? Beautiful ceramic flowers with a wire backing that can be attached to pretty much anything?? Now we have everything!

How did you make this gorgeous lampshade? I have tons of doilies left over from my daughter's wedding. Would love to make one of these.
