Last week I posted photos of the lighting set-up we have in our rondawel which is where we sleep. 
We have candles, headlamps and hand-held torches 

This week we added a paraffin (kerosene) lamp 

A much brighter light



  1. Wow, it is brighter. I remember using kerosene lamps as our main source of lighting when I was a child. That was in the days before widespread electricity to households. We lived in a very small town of only a few hundred people and kerosene was the main light source for those that didn't live right in town. I only get to see a kerosene lamp now when I go to Kenya. Even there many homes have been added to the grid since my last visit.

  2. I remember the paraffin lights - we used to call them Hurricane Lamps.

  3. Hello, we usually keep the lanterns and candles for when our electric goes out. Cute kitties! Happy Monday, enjoy your day and new week ahead!

  4. I think these lamps give such a warm and cosy light !

  5. I love kerosene lamps and had a collection of about 40 of them for years, I got rid of all but 6, five of them are antiques. I love the flickering light and 2 of them I burn, the others just sit to be looked at. I am very fond of candle/lamp light

  6. The kerosene lamp is nice as decoration. For emergencies, a variety of lanterns and candles is the answer.
