"These are a few of my favourite things..." - Sound Of Music. Didn't you love that show?
So I am in the middle of so many projects right now (and they are BIG ones). None of them are completed, so I can't post them just yet. But I thought I would write a post about one of MY collections. As I have posted some trendy collections of owls (you can check out here), and a collection of chandeliers (you can look at those here), also a few mobiles I thought were cute (you can check out here). But lanterns is what I love, and I am slowly growing a collection.
It started with this one:
I got it at Superstore a few years after I got married, and I love the moroccan style because when I light it up and the room is dark, it leaves the neatest shadows around the room.
This next one, I found at a garage sale and the lady asked how much I wanted to pay, and I said "50 cents". She said sure! What a deal, and I love this one because it holds a taper candle that sits right in the middle. I light this one a lot. I love the shape.
My brother was moving and was getting rid of his lanterns, so I bought them off him for $10 each. They are patio lanterns, and they are huge, they go down to the floor. I love them. Right now I have one in my dining room, and the other in my bedroom.
This green one I found at Homesense. I LOVE that store! It was on clearance, and I loved the colour of it. It's so fresh looking. I got it this Spring.
A few days after I found the green one, I found this white one at the local thrift store for $3.99! It's sitting on my dresser waiting for a candle.
These star lanterns I took a picture of when we (hubby and I) were in Mexico this Spring. They had a whole bunch of them hanging from a tree on the street. It was very pretty.
And these lanterns were in Mexico also, and they are made from coconuts! I wanted to get one for my sons room. They plug in! I thought they were neat too.
So, there you have it. Am I obsessed with lanterns or what?
They are so pretty and create a nice light which creates a nice mood. Ooooh!
What about you? Have any lanterns kicking around the house?
