I love candlelight……….
My wrinkles look better.
My hiney looks smaller.
I store all of my candles in this buffet.
Lately though……I have put my candles to the side and found a new/old love.
I am not a newbie to oil lamps….and have grown up with them.
When hurricanes hit in our parts….and the lights go out……we board up the windows…..pull out the tater chips and bologna sandwiches and light our oil lamps.
All, in that order.
At least my family does.
We just do not usually use them for “ambiance”.
But lately…….I have changed my ways.
I pulled our oil lamps out the other day…..thinking…why not?
I purchased the “smokeless”, “odorless”, oil from Walmart….
And have enjoyed the romantic/nostalgic lighting that an oil lamp offers.
There is something about it that brings you to a simpler time.
A time when lights go out and families come together.
Do you have any oil lamps?
Do you use them regularly…..or just as decor?
Pull them out…..feel their magic.
We enjoyed ours this evening as a family.
Bringing us all together.
They were the perfect addition tonight when we were watching our recorded edition of “Gene Simmon”s Family Jewels” and “Pawn Stars”.
What’s wrong with that?
You feel less guilty watching reality shows by lamplight.
At least my wrinkles looked good and my hiney looked smaller…..
Ok…maybe they didn’t….but we do love the lamp light.
Do you use your oil lamps?
Do you have any?
Let me know.
