My husband has an illumination obsession. Every lamp in our home has a timer that goes off and on (and off and on) at different intervals. It's a little disquieting if you aren't used to it. Once when we were first married and away for a weekend, a friend stayed to sit for the cats and freaked out when all the lights popped on simultaneously at 6pm. And then off again at 11pm.
Recently he has taken to making lamps out of found objects. Currently all these lamps reside in our home (we have an outrageous electric bill). Someday the much-desired Etsy shop will have some listed for sale.
This cool art deco toaster was a yard sale find that is now... a light.
Keebler Biscuit tin that's--you got it--a lamp!
Variation on a theme. These small coffeepots with glass lids are sort of night-lights, as the light emanates from the holes punched into the pot and the glass top. Doesn't look like this one is lit; guess it's not the magical timer hour (and that iron next to it has been transformed into a clock--another of his projects).
Another small coffeepot with glass lid and punched pattern. This one's a snowflake pattern.
Do you think he needs an intervention?
