Give Up? Number of Oil Lamps
Green Bay, Wisconsin

I wrote a post a couple days ago on my collection of oil lamps. Only one person got close to the number, off by one. I admit, I even had trouble with the number when I counted them on the pictures. Two of them got counted twice. I can't tell you how long ago I began collecting oil lamps, but it's been quite a while and I'm always adding to it. So, the number of oil lamps in the pictures is 22. There are 10 in my bedroom and 12 in the living room. If you missed it, the lantern is an oil lamp. I got it as a Christmas present several years ago. What do you collect? Thanks for reading.

You're counting a couple of them twice. I have two pictures - a close up of the ones on my hutch dresser, and a picture encompassing all of them, and two pictures of the coffee table and window seat. That's probably where you got the extra lamps. There's 22.
LOL... that reminds me of when I was a kid and my grandparents gave each child a plot of land on their property. We had a two room "cabin" with no electricity... It was so cozy at night when the lights came from the oil lamps. Gee... haven't thought of that in years!!!
