Tuesday Display Chain # 8 You Light up my life

As winter sets in night comes earlier.In the darkness we look for warmth and light.So here are my ways to Light up my life on a cold winters eve. Settler style would have been to sit by a warm fire sewing or chatting with family about the day,papa probly would have smoked a pipe....
I'd love to own any of these early pieces.I do have some of the courting candles and early tin candle molds in my collection..
Early Betty or Rush Lamp...

The warm glow of candles would be my choice of light.The scents of the season drifting threw the air and the low glow flicker gently lighting the night...



Nowadays we have the covience of a warm glow with batteries.Still prim perfect for our early homes....


Early lanterns came in all forms to light the railroads and barns for the final feeding of the livestock....


Early pewter lantern would have been used by the bedside or slant desk.....

Pottery Lamp would have been a general use lamp but most were tin or iron...
Old cupboard iron early light most likely would have hung in a window or on the hearth...

Punched tin or revere lantern leave beautiful flickering shadows on the wall.

Hope you enjoyed my display for week #8 Misi picked my theme for this week,so I've been extra excited for todays chain.Stop over and see who all joined in and enjoy your visits.I can't wait to see everyones displays.Warm Blessings!~Amy
