    Nicely done there, Bernie. Where are you getting your lamp inserts?

    From CSUSA. They come complete with small jar, funnel, wick and oil. Decent price. The first two I did I took down to the floral shop as she wanted to display them. I couldn't believe they went out in the first day at $30 each.

    I can believe it Bernie, they are nice looking and they do something, they can be considered "Practical"

    Great idea, add it to my ever expanding list of things to do!

    Thanks I appreciate it. Yep Stu got to try to do everything at least once. Sometimes they do come out pretty well. The LOML likes hers as she puts scented oil in hers.
