Ok, so I am going around my house and thinking I am a bit tired of a few treasures I have been holding on to. I do like beautiful clutter, but now I am craving a "scaled down" look of my designed clutter. So I am caving in and letting some things go, listing them in my Etsy vintage shop, Remember Yesterday. So I get to some old antique electric insulators. I bought a lot in an auction a while back, lots of white and a few blue, 1 aqua.

So while checking some prices in Etsy listings, I saw a very clever use for these. (I must give credit to the smart cookie who thought of this) Insert a flicker candle….GENIOUS. So I will keep one or two and use them now in this way…
Whatcha think?


  1. I love old insulators, and that is a great new use for them!

  2. What a way cute reuse idea. I, too, get so many ideas while looking around on Etsy and can spend hours on there.
