Old stuff..............

I love these polished small rocks I've got poured in several locations around the yard. These are at the bottom of the steps; others are at the goldfish/koi ponds. Some of the beaders on the online group I belong to are now beading rocks! And they're pretty! Of course these little rocks are pretty just like they are, but I'll be bound to try covering a couple with seed beads for small paperweights. And they won't be too heavy to mail as gifts!
Stay tuned.............
.........does anybody know exactly WHAT this little OLD lamp is called, and how it was used? The green is thick glass; I'm assuming from the tall "handle" that it was meant to be hung from something. I suppose a small candle would burn in the round metal container inside; the top of the thing is open, so a flame would get oxygen, and smoke could escape. I didn't measure it, but it's not more than 15" tall. Thanks for any information about it!
