So you remember this post where I showed you some of the vintage wares my inspired husband had transformed into lamps and other illuminating devices. Well, I wasn't finished. There are more. Many, many, more.
I showed you this one unlit, but I managed to get the timing right and get a shot of it in all its glory. (If you remember, all the lights are on a timer. But not all of the timers are set to come on at the same time. So things are popping on and off all night long. And did I mention the clocks were set to Daylight Savings Time at 3pm on Saturday? Yeah, that doesn't confuse me any. I realize that has nothing to do with the timers. I just wanted to get it in there.)
Here's another small teapot. Let's try a before and after. Before the timer hits the magic witching hour:
And yes, it's on top of the toilet tank. I told you they were everywhere. And voíla! -- after! [Funny aside; one of them just popped off as I was writing this and scared the heck out of me!]
Ok, seriously, I could show you a couple more teapot/coffeepots but that would be boring. Let's move on to a tin. This one isn't round like most of the others, but a very cool --great colors and graphics -- rectangular-shaped licorice lozenge tin with an arched cutout.
And voíla again! The light shines through the photo paper for a very cool effect. And yes, the tin is now slightly damaged but I don't think it would have gotten us $30,000 on the Antiques Road Show. At least I hope it wouldn't have! Where are the Keno twins when you need them?
