I had a lava lamp in high school. It was all I wanted and I was thrilled when I opened it on Christmas morning, 1991. Yep, just dated myself 😉 My lava lamp was white with blue wax and was SO pretty…

Back then I had no idea the history of The Lava Lamp. It’s very interesting! A British accountant Edward Craven-Walker invented the lava lamp in 1963 after watching a homemade egg timer, which was made from a cocktail shaker filled with liquids, as it was bubbling on a stove top in a pub. His U.S. Patent for “Display Device” was filed in 1965, 50  years ago.DSC_0581

Today the lava lamp stands for peace and love, along with a bit of a high fashion flare. When you see one you can’t help but be mesmerized by the floating and bubbling wax. It’s soothing. And not only does Lava Lamp have a 50th Anniversary  edition lamp (the red and purple one!), but also some super cool designer lamps.

My 50th Anniversary Lava Lamp now lives in my kitchen. I love the warm glow it gives off every morning when I drag myself out of bed and get my daily coffee. It’s totally soothing and relaxing to watch the wax bubble up and down…

I think when Brick from Anchorman said “I love lamp”, the Lava Lamp may have been what he was talking about.
