earlier post I promised more details on my too-good-to-be-true solar lanterns from IKEA, and since I'm now enjoying them every night I wanted to share them. As you may remember, my patio lacked light and life though it is a shady, enjoyable place to spend time.
They're just as pretty during the day, too - I've discovered I can almost be hypnotized by staring at the wonderful lanterns swinging gently in the wind.
I thought I spent a fortune on my treasure ($15 for the big white one and $10 for the smaller; $8 for the large blue one, which was on clearance) but then saw a similar lantern listed at over $40 in this month's Real Simple magazine. Knowing I got a good deal makes me like these gorgeous additions even better.
