When I was a kid, one year some relative or family friend gave me a subscription to Highlights magazine. It wasn’t very interesting usually, though the puzzles were OK (I was probably too old for it already), but one issue had a version of the Baba Yaga fairy tale, about a witch who lived in a hut with chicken legs that could move the house around the forest at will. I was fascinated by the notion, as I recall, and disappointed when the subscription ran out before the next installment of the story.

So it completes the tale somehow to make a lamp that echoes the memory – and just in time for Halloween. I give you a hybrid of tripod and birdcage I call Baba Yaga’s Hut.
