A Little Retro: Peace Man

Hello friends!  I couldn't help but to give my post the name "Peace Man!"  LOL!  Every time I look at my new retro lamp, it brings back childhood memories of mom sewing us girls Peace sign smocks.  Anyone remember these?  Anyway, I bought the lamp at an antique shoppe and it was originally a 7-Up soda can.  I decided to add some Graphic 45, "Olde Curiousity Shoppe, Optical Oddities" paper, a metal frame and number (Tim Holtz) and some chipboard wings by Basically Bare.  I've embossed the wings with black and silver WOW! embossing powder.
Cool, huh?
