Filling the Lamps
This is my oil lamp collection. I started collecting these lamps many years ago. Some of them came from Williamsburg, Virginia while on vacation. Others came from northern Minnesota at an antique dealer's shop. And some were picked up at local flea markets.
The other day, I cleaned and filled them all with lamp oil. We have lost our power so many times this summer due to big rain storms. Now there is a flashlight next to the bed because sometimes the power goes out in the middle of the night.
For the rest of the summer the oil lamps will sit in the middle of the dining room table. Just in case. I secretly love these times when I get to pull them out, light them and just bask in their glow.
