With permission I’m adding another lamp idea.
Michael Merrifield-Forsstrom A really easy way to make an oil lamp is with a rock that has a natural hole, a small dish, and cotton crochet yarn.
MaryAnne Anja Bues Bartlett Oh, now that’s a cool idea! Thanks!
Michael Merrifield-Forsstrom I like it because rocks with holes in them have so many other uses such as pendulums. I love tools that can multitask.
MaryAnne Anja Bues Bartlett Can I swipe your pic and idea and add it to tomorrow’s newsletter?
Michael Merrifield-Forsstrom Sure. I don’t think it was my idea. The early cave painters used rocks with shallow bowls in them as oil lamps and they made wicks from moss. A lot of their oil lamps have been found at the entrances to their caves.

MaryAnne Anja Bues Bartlett Well, yeah….. button lamps and stone lamps and betty lamps and all have been around a long while.
