Look! Mystery Sidewalk Find

My friend Anne (remember her gorgeous home?) called me this weekend all aflutter about this beautiful lamp she found while trolling garage sales on Saturday. In fact, the lamp wasn't even a garage sale find, but a freebie spotted on the sidewalk en route from one sale to the next. Can you tell what the lamp base is made of? Answer after the jump!

If you guessed popsicle sticks, congrats! The lamp base is an intricate layered popsicle stick design that would likely put even the most talented fifth grader's Golden Gate Bridge model to shame. Anne was smitten with the lamp even before she noticed its humble materials.

We like the way the light passes through the lamp base in Anne's window. What do you think? Can you get behind popsicle stick d├ęcor? Could it ever become a trend? Are we looking at the new antlers here??
