Need a new candle holder? trouble!

I found this vintage trouble light at an estate sale, half price on the second day, (I am obsessed with turning old objects into candle holders). My daughter gave me the usual look, and the usual saying, "I'm sure you have an idea for that". All I had to do was scrub it up and there you have it, a great candle holder. It has a really heavy glass that covered the light bulb, plus I put a heavy glass votive inside, so I am double safe. I discovered that it also fits inside my glass hurricane, so the possibilities are endless.

Have a good junking week-end ladies!
