My apologies for disappearing lately my dear VP readers.. Tons on my mind, a gazillion things to do and so very little time.. There is nothing more I want right now than escaping to a far far away retreat with all white interiors, vaulted ceilings, and views of blue waters out of every door and every window..
thought these pics might get me closer..

It’s officially summer time! .. and for those of you in better weather climates (it’s over a 100 degrees out here!!) summer equals time for outdoor lunches and dinner parties.. Yaaaay! I hope you enjoy the season with these simple but stunning ambiance creation ideas by Cox & Cox..
First off, here is an easy any day DIY outdoor lighting solution for your garden. All you need is fire-retardant paper lantern bags (available in this pretty star punched design at Cox & Cox), some gravel to weigh them down and tea lights ..
Or fly your lanterns up in the sky with these charms… Just light the paper at the bottom of these amazing outdoor paper flying lanterns and watch them soar into the sky (Great for wedding parties!)
Enjoy your outdoor meals without being interrupted by the mossies with these delicate little terracotta pots. They contain citronella wax candles that provide a pretty light while keeping mosquitos away!
You can now store the morning sunlight in a jar so you can use it at night with this great solar-powered jar lamp that comes with a solar cell, a battery and LED lights. It’s waterproof and, once charged, remains lit for 5 hours!
More elegant ideas to lighten and brighten up your trees:
and lastly, keep your tablecloth in place by attaching these exclusive, twinkling glass droplets to its corners.. (I know this one’s nothing to do with lighting but I just couldn’t resist!!)
