"Seconds" Grace Our Front Porch
Unlike the cobbler's children who always went barefoot, we make enough ice lanterns to have rejects to grace our front porch on a regular basis. This one was so big that when I tried to carry it by myself into the basement to fix a slight irregularity on the bottom, I dropped it and it landed hard in the stone sink. Now lanterns this big don't tend to break, but they do get a big ding on impact. (A ding on a big ice lantern looks like a ding on a windshield.)
Because it has a ding on one side, I really can't sell it or give it away, so it becomes a "second" and I can put it on MY front steps!
Contact me with questions, suggestions or to send me photos of your ice lantern creations!
