  • is it ok to leave lava lamps on 24/7???

      Candles. Be very careful with candles for your own safety. Do not leave candles burning unattended or near curtains. Turn off lava lamps - there is usually a recommended maximum time to leave them on. The last major student house fire in Bristol was caused by a lava lamp.

                    my daughters Lava Lamp is on a timer that comes on in the morning and later in the evening for a few hours, the timer keeps it from being on 24/7 yet it is on when she is around to see/enjoy it.

                        I've made a few changes to the king, cleaning up lines and adding some motifs taken from the Rouen pattern of playing cards. It's a throw back to some of the original designs.
