My Oil Lamps

      Some shots of my oil lamps. One was my mom's, but I don't think it is "real" old, but is over 50 years. One of the others is about 43 years old. It was part of a pair that I got as a high school graduation gift. I remember my mom being upset that my aunt would give them to me as a gift, and for of all things a graduation gift, but I loved them and they started my love of oil lamps! The base used to be a dark green, but it flaked off over the years with washing it, so I finally washed the balance off. The other one was broken many years ago.

      The other lamps I also received as gifts from my oldest sons over the years until I told him I was running out of room to display them!

The lamps are on top of our entertainment unit, and within the glass doors are most of my dolls.
