You Light Up My Life

Today I am joining Misi over at 1890 Gable House Musing for week 8 of a display chain she has going on.The theme for week 8 is ......"You Light Up My Life" The idea presented by Amy of CottagePrims. Her thoughts for this theme ~ "With winter setting in and being in the dark ~ You light up my life~ early lighting,candles,lanterns or even new lights"

I did a post similar to this in the past so I had some photos on hand, I cropped other photos I had and I took some new ones. And despite all those photos, I still didn’t include all my prim and colonial lighting. I hope you won’t get bored with all that I did include. First I have candlesticks of every sort – short and tall, meta0od038052483095

When I want real light bulbs for reading and brighter lighting, I made jugs into lamps (I made them from kits I got years ago but I have been told to check Home Depot for the kits).5153162170

And then there are all those different reproduction lights. Many are made to look like early candlesticks.015022065 (2)029046195064065490115family room 1
