I will be one of those copying your beautiful globe..... just need the money and that takes way too much time for me (grin). I too have been looking for just the pendant thingy....... but have now decided to go with your idea, only using the old fashioned newspaper and flour/water paste, and then use o do the plastic wrap over that and then reinforce the top to be tacked to the ceiling over my circa 1962 (remember Jax used to always be 20 yrs behind the times), so guessing my fixtures are older and cheap. I grew up in Jax now, so please don't send me hate messages...... grin again. I was thinking of just some wood scraps to nail or glue or screw to the ceiling and then attach the globe to those.
What do you all think of that one? Of course I would have to cut a wider top circle out to fit my existing light socket/thingy. Plus my house is tiny and the slightly vaulted ceiling is at a low point of about 8 ft 4 in...... sigh. I have a dream thanks to you Shelly and yes, I am a copy kat.
