Let There Be (Holiday) Light!

Nov

I’ve got lights on the front porch! Yay! I’m calling them patio lights and keeping them forever. You?


It would all probably look nicer if I took the dead plants down…..

    I love, Love LOVE them!!!! Keep them forever! You’ve convinced me to do it too! I’m going shopping for “fairy lights” tomorrow!

    Lighten the winter, welcome the spring, pay tribute to summer, show the glory of fall!

    The lighting is so much easier on the eyes than a big bright bulb. We used to keep them on the porch all the time. Wish we had a porch now. *sigh* I have colored lights up in my son’s room all the time. He adores it!

    Suzanne, take a poll for us to vote on whether to keep them up all year ’round or not then you can have “leverage” to say you *are* going to keep them up all year…..that’s what your fans want!!! ;)

    They look lovely with your rustic dried herbaceous arrangements. ;)

    Lights are good, no matter what you call them (fairy lights, fall lights, christmas lights, patriotic lights!). I still like to change out the colors though! I put up blue icicle lights on my porch for winter, after Christmas!

    THEY’RE GEOGEOUS, keep them up because you want them. The plants are perfect with them.

    :woof:
    Can you imagine an icy cold beer on a hot summer’s night on your porch with a light breeze blowing through the trees and little white lights twinkling? How nice.

    oh that looks so festive. when you live on a farm in the middle of nowhere lights will really lift your spirits – no neighbors right next door or across and up and down the street, but total darkness except for your lights and the sky of stars above. they make every day look like company’s coming. but yeah, I’d probably take the dead plants down. or not. whatever makes you happy. it’s all yours, and that’s the best part. :yes: :yes: :yes:

    They’re not dead, they’re just dried flower arrangements, aren’t they? Love the patio lights, they’re simply magical… I think I’ll get some for our porch and sit back in a rocker with all my warm winter woolies on and imagine I’m in a Greek courtyard on a warm summer evening with a gentle breeze coming in off the sea… ahhhhh! Merry Christmas, Suzanne! :clover:

    :wave: Hi, Suzanne,
    We have icicle lights hanging all year! They hang along the top of the front sliders and do act as night lights or tv watching lights.

    I love the lights on the porch. We have ours up year round outside our kitchen… They are so welcoming.

    Came home from the neighbors last night and sat on my deck with a fire in the chimena and my fairy lights in the tree. Ours are up all year. Wouldn’t be without them. Keep yours up.

    Looks good to me! I’d keep them up. Gives a nice warm glow to your front porch.

    I love the lights too. I thought that I could see a face on the second hanging plant so I lightened the photo a little and sure enough There is a face of a little girl smiling right on the side of the flower pot.I think she is happy with the fairy lights.

    I love them too, but have to be the worry wart that says: “Please, please, please check them from time to time if you plan on leaving them up year round. My cousin’s house burned down because of her “patio” lights”:(

    I find lights outdoors to wear out relatively quickly from exposure to harsh elements, potentially making them unsafe as backwoodsdreaming pointed out. Make sure your outdoor lights are indeed rated for outdoor use to stay as safe as possible, and never, ever use christmas tree or indoor lights outside. That said, indoor lights are a whole different ball game; mine might as well be permanent lighting fixtures!

    Nah, hubby and I both agree that we don’t need to make our power company any richer….

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
