One of My Favorite Things...Fairy Lights

"So, you're buying a fairy light!"  I didn't know the woman who said this to me in the line at the thrift store.  I had picked up this really cool blue glass jar-looking thing and was waiting to purchase it.  And older women in line behind me informed me that this thing I was purchasing was called a "fairy light."  Or at least that's what "they" called them in the 70's, she said.

Since that day, I've picked up two more fairy lights that are slightly different and I have them clustered together on one end of our mantle.  As you can see, these fairy lights cast a beautiful glow when they are lit with tea-light or votive candles.  I just love them and the lights they project onto the wall and mantle.

PS.  The blue one is still my favorite.

    1. Thanks. I think so too. And I just stumbled on one at Goodwill one day. I didn't even know what they are!

  3. If you are looking to buy outdoor lights, I think fairy lights is a great option. It is more convenient to shop online.
