June CupboardScape

Good afternoon sweet blogging friends.
My how time sure does fly by.
Summer is here already,
but yesterday we had some rough Spring weather
with many tornadoes touching down
here in Michigan.
Mother Nature sure does know how to bring in a season.

Times are flying by so fast,
that I even forgot to post the
June CupboardScape.

This month's letters are K and L

Mostly the letter L
featuring many Lighting items.

The red blue check blanket
is a Linsey Woolsey one.
It was well worn and loved though.
Many holes, but still a beauty.

My only K letter is this Kite winder
made from wood.
You would wrap the string around in a circle
in the middle and turn with the metal winder.
Can you inagine holding this whilst flying your kite?

Next is a tin hurricane lamp
with a finger holder.

Hogscraper candle holder next to it.

A taller hogscraper candle holder.

An early swing arm candle holder.

Look at the detail of this base.

The stem has holes to move the candle to various heights
using a peg.
Although the original peg is missing.
Bob added a tiny dowel rod so it can still be moved up or down.

Make do lighting using an old mallet.

Another make do using a piece of a tin candle mold,
with the candle placed inside.

Then my rusty old metal scoop make do candle.

I did forget to take a picture of the light hanging to the left.
It is a glass hanging lantern.
If you click the first picture to enlarge,
you can see it better.

Looking at my first picture again,
I also forgot to take a pic of the pierced tin candle light
Bob had made me.
Plus another make do candle
made from two pieces of wood to look like an X.

Geez Janice...lights on and nobody at home???

Another month under my belt.

Lighting Blessings To All!
