Beautiful Solar Lanterns


Purchase these great solar lanterns at

Earth Tech Products

With just a few weeks left before the clocks turn back, it’s a great time to take advantage of some cozy fall nights in your yard or garden. I found these gorgeous solar lanterns today and I am actually considering ordering them; They are $36.00 a piece and all lanterns are equipped with two high powered Amber LED lights, solar panel, AAA rechargeable battery and stainless steel hardware. We still like barbecuing into the early winter and so these lanterns will really accent our Sunday night family BBQ nights and give it that comfy feel.

I also found these great Hand Blown Glass Solar Lights by Trilogy, also available at Earth Tech Products

These glass lanterns are equipped with AA rechargeable batteries and a photo light sensor and cost aboiut $43.00. Checkout the link for additional designs.

An Early Start on Thanksgiving Decorating

Ceramic fruits from

I ordered these fantastic ceramic fruits today and I am so excited to use then as this years centerpiece on our thanksgiving table. I am not so sure why I am thinking about thanksgiving so much when Halloween hasn’t even rolled out yet, but better early than late! Z Gallerie was also offering 20% off all regularly priced accessory purchases $20 and more and so my total came to under $40.  Not bad for a centerpiece I can use year after year and keep out as a fall decoration on my mantle. Speaking of mantles, have you checked out the new before and after section on There are some great pictures of before and after mantles. Also check out this great Halloween decorated mantle at a fun blog I follow:
