Come on Baby, Light My Fire

Introducing my new, and possibly very favorite, EcuaPrize...

**Warning--Tiny Nudity!! This might not be suitable for young children :) **

Yeah, she's pretty awesome.  

Dave and I found her at an antique store in Cuenca this past week.  We were looking for a lighter for our gas stove since the matches they sell in Ecuador are plastic sticks that bend whenever you run them across the lighter strip.  Dave picked out a standard black Zippo lighter, boring.

When I saw this beauty, which I have named Bombera, I had to have her.  I can't help but think that this is an item my grandfather would have loved, makes me love her even more.
