Some of you might remember that I purchased an unusual solar lamp about a month ago.
Made out of clay, it looks like an interesting candle holder. However, it contains a solar panel that catches the sun light during the day and emits a warm, yellow light upon the onset of dusk. The most intriguing feature about this lovely solar lamp is the fact that it flickers, simulating a candle.
The White Nights officially ended on the 7th of August and this means that the amount of sunlight is decreasing as well. However, it is still sufficient enough to charge all my solar lamps. I have had a lot of enjoyment from all of them over the course of the summer, particularly this new one.
I have placed it just outside the large window next to the main entrance door. Its warm flickering light makes my entrance inviting after the darkness settles over the neighbourhood. Additionally, it can be seen both from the outside and the inside of the house, thus functioning as a sort of a nightlight, casting a magical, almost ethereal light across the staircase during the darkest hours of the night.
