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, meta0od…
This is a real antique and when I helped to clear out my grandmother’s neighbors home,. I was able to take this beauty home.I love this heavy iron candlestick from Circa Home Living!
This was a gift from a dear blogging friend Kath over at The Olde Weeping Cedar. Kath is so talented – she made this!
And assorted hanging….
Over the years we have replace all of our main floor ceiling fixtures with colonial reproductions….
What Prim gal doesn’t have a variety of colonial wall sconces – some electric, some not!
and some colonial lanterns too!
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).
And then there are all those different reproduction lights. Many are made to look like early candlesticks.
and last but not least, real antique oil lamps!
Thanks so much for stopping by and come back on Sunday for more Thankful Thoughts!
Prim hugs, Grammee Linda
