Mitaki ELANT12 Classic 12-bulb Lantern

Offered by SKIVU


Gorgeous and functional!

copper lanterns 12 LED lightsThis is the perfect replica of the old oil lanterns I remember from my childhood, except for one thing, it won’t burn you! With the source of light being 12 LED Lights that run on 4AA batteries, you don’t have to worry about it running out of fuel or injuring anyone. The copper finish on it is gorgeous, copper is what I use as my kitchen accent color. So guess what this little lantern is going to be? It is actually going to be a camping light! And a decorative element!

Of course, I will use it more for a decorative piece than anything, though. I have ordered some of the copper wire lights to place inside of it (with a remote) so that I can place this on top of my cabinets with my other copper pieces. As soon as they come in, I will update this with a picture, I am sure it is going to look like it was meant for that spot.  I think the same copper wire lights inside of it would look nice at a campsite too.

This would also be a great piece to decorate your RV with if you have any little shelves. What would be better than a camping themed element that would work in an emergency as an extra light source?

The lantern is well constructed and I haven’t had any problems. I like that the knob for the lights is dimmable, it can be very dim or super bright.  Other things I like are that the globe is glass, not plastic.  It has a good weight to it, it doesn’t feel like it is flimsily made. The copper color is a finish, as stated in the product review but it looks very accurate. You wouldn’t want a real copper lantern for a camp lantern anyway, it would tarnish too quickly.  It has a handy hook at the top if you want to hang it and it also has a nice long handle to carry it with if you need to.

I don’t see any disadvantages to this. I highly recommend it whether you are looking at this as a decorative piece or a functional piece,

Easily Add Beauty to Any Room

windowpix window filmThis makes a great addition to our home. I chose this specific one, Spring Sunset on the Dutch Canals (24 x 36), out of the 14 designs available because I liked the thought of walking along the canals and looking at all of the different architecture. That is something I would really love to do someday. The details are really incredible on this. It is also very interesting to watch the play of light against the window and watch how different parts of the image are the focus as the intensity of the light changes. We also have a large tree right outside of the window behind this and the tree really causes some interesting effects on the image.

Advantages:
* Crisp, detailed print
* Easy to apply
* So many different sizes and images to choose from
* Easy to trim yourself if needed
* Changes the complete feel of the room
* I can open the curtains and not have to worry about the room getting as hot as it normally would
* Not just for windows. I have a great craft idea in mind for one of these and an old mirror……
* Made in the USA!

Disadvantages:
None, I can’t wait to order more of these. I would love it if this company  came out with some designs with a stained glass theme.
