A beautiful candle wall sconce will add a real touch of class to your home

A candle wall sconce is one of the lighting accessories you will find in all lighting stores. Sconces attach to the wall of any room and hold one or more candles of varying sizes. For example, you can have a candle wall sconce made from wrought iron that holds three or four votive candles. You can also have a candle wall sconce that looks like an old-fashioned oil lamp.

Contemporary candle sconces are made or brass, pewter, Tiffany glass and some are made of plastic. Each candle wall sconce has a plate that attaches to the wall, while not holding the candleholder close to the wall. When you light the candle, the flame is not near the wall, so you don’t have to worry that it could cause a fire. The wrought iron tealight candle holder sconce is a work of art and you can get this type of wall sconce in many different designs. There are wrought iron sconces with intricate carvings and shaped to look like harps and angels.

When you use candle wall sconces to decorate your home, guests will ask the name of your interior decorator. That is because accentuating a room with a candle wall sconce has become the decorating theme for contemporary homes. While the home is modern, the décor is a throwback to long ago times when every home had a wrought iron tealight candle holder sconce on the wall. You can also get these wrought iron candle holders that hold votive candles, taper and pillar candles.

A candle wall sconce is the perfect way to add accent lighting to any room of the home. If you have candle wall sconces mounted on either side of a picture or a tapestry on the wall, it will really show off the artwork to its best effect. The range of wall sconces that you can get is awesome and you may need some time to choose the one that best suits your décor.

A Crystal Animal Figurine Hand Crafted From Turkish Lead Crystal

Purchase a lead crystal animal figurine from the area where the making of lead crystal glass first began. Turkey has been involved in crafting crystal figurines for many centuries. Small workshops in towns and villages are the settings where the crystal animal figurine is created in a variety of designs. Today the dolphin is one of the most popular as a crystal animal figurine.

The art of creating lead crystal glass figurines has not changed significantly throughout the many centuries. The process begins with the craftsman melting the molten glass ingredients in a furnace. A wooden mould is also used to shape the glass. After the craftsman inspects the crystal figurine he is creating and finds that this step is finished, he then lets it cool for 36-48 hours.

After the crystal animal figurine has cooled for the specific period of time, the craftsman uses an emery stone to facet the surface. This gives the lead crystal piece its beautiful reflective qualities. He then adds any specific details he wants to see in the crystal. Many of the crystal animal figurines are left smooth, but there may be details that need to be added to the figurine, such as eyes. This process is how Turkish crystal figurines are made and these workshops are noted for their attention to detail and perfection in the pieces they produce.

Although a Turkish crystal animal figurine can be expensive, it is well worth what you pay for it. They are true works of art that you will certainly want to add to your collection. A lead crystal figurine of any design in your curio cabinet carries with it the centuries of history that developed its creation. You can look at it and know that the work that went into its creation is a time honored tradition from the past that is still used in the present, in spite of all the new technology that has since been developed.

When you have a crystal animal figurine crafted in lead crystal glass you can consider yourself lucky. Today there is a strong demand for crystal animal figurines made in Turkey, from many other parts of the world. The quality of today’s crystal figurines is just as superior as it was hundreds of years ago.

 

3 Different Kinds of Organic Tshirts and What to Choose?

It is not a secret now that the demand for organic cotton clothing is rising quickly. People are willing to buy more natural clothing to themselves to prevent from harmful chemicals that are used at several textile processes.

However, there are also some clever people who are trying to make more money on using this weakness of people. I mean how will you trust that the t-shirt you purchased is really organic? There are 3 common usages of organic cotton.

a) You use the normal/conventional cotton and claim that it was organic. If people believes you then you will make %30 more profit with the exact same garments. So please carefully check the labels of the clothing before you buy and also try to buy from big brands!

b) You get the organic cotton. Made the fabric from it and dye it like you do with the normal cotton. In the end you will have a harmful and chemical fabric which is not organic but “made from organic cotton”.

c) You get the organic cotton and dye it with dyestuff that is allowed by the organic certification companies and follow their guidelines. This is costly and the final fabric, t-shirt price will be higher but this is ofcourse healtier. In the end your organic fabric will not be harmful! In that case you can also say the term “organic t-shirt” easily.

Confusing right? Try to stay away from “made in India” and “made in China” organic cotton products for now. USA and Turkey is offering much better quality and trusted business at the moment. I will try to explain the details in my next article on fromorganic.com web site.
