Lighten up!

Like a moth to a flame… or rather, a moth to an energy conserving lightglobe… I find myself eerily drawn to these colourful and unusual lightsources.

Stay away from the light? I don’t think so.

Sun Moon Jar light

Sun and Moon jars — Yes okay, if you really put the sun in a jar you’d need really good oven mitts, or be at the centre of a black hole, or time would run backwards or… that involves physics so let’s not go there. A little bit of captured sunshine is a sweet idea.  Maybe you should let it out in the daytime so it’s Mama doesn’t come fry you.

Electric Firefly recycled plastic light

Electric Firefly — Isn’t it pretty?  It also comes disassembled in a fabulously curved cardboard carry box.  Have fun putting it together.  Find yourself a 9 year old Lego fanatic and you might stand half a chance.

Fibre optic lamp

Optic Fibre lamps — whoever thought you could still buy these? And yes, I am a big enough dork to like them. Now you know.

Lava Lamps

Lava Lamps: as their website attests — the original shape of cool

About gillianloves

I decided there was not enough laughing in my life so I set to and started to design greeting cards in addition to my other design work. I'm happy to make people smile and to show that giving something really good takes as little effort as sending something pretty ordinary. I fully believe that if you can laugh about it someday you may as well laugh about it today. And also that we are just about as happy as we try to be. But you should know, Pollyanna I'm not. Even I might want to slap her after a day or so.

    I bought two of the optic fibre lamps! They’re Christmas pressies so I havent opened and tested them, but they do need three AA batteries each. The optic fibres are probably about 30 cm long, and the unit needs to be assembled. Looks like it’ll be simple to do though.
