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.

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.
