Enbrighten Classic LED Café String Lights run to an outdoor fireplace
We just got some Adirondack chairs and a fire pit to enjoy in back of our new house. Nothing as ambitious as this outdoor fireplace, but I want to do something a little more than the chairs on the grass we have now.
This time of year it stays light really late, but when it gets cool enough to really enjoy our fire pit, it’s going to be really dark back by the brook where I want it.
I am figuring out how to add some light that will look good day and night.
We had string lights for the porch of our log cabin. I used to have to replace them nearly every year until I bought Enbrighten cafe lights. They are still there and still working, but I can’t take them. The cabin is a vacation rental now and people use the lights. Continue reading →
Lighting with Vintage Telegraph and Telephone Glass Insulators
Repurposed old glass insulators are all over Etsy. People turn them into candle holders and book ends. I have about a dozen of them that I put over inexpensive solar lights. They mostly block both the light and the solar panel, but I don’t care.
A number of lighting manufacturers make lighting collections that use reproduction glass insulators or are inspired by them. They range from rustic and farmhouse to modern or industrial. Continue reading →

Curved LED Illuminated Monorail with Blue LED Generator and LED Illuminated Monorail Jelly Pendants in Blue, Cable suspended
LBL LED Illuminated Monorail System
LED Illuminated Monorail
Hand-bendable Monorail with a fiber-optic band of colored LED light.
State-of-the-art LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes) brilliantly illuminate through fiber optic cabling that runs through the center of LBL’s Monorail. Simply plug in a single-ended LED generator at the ends of the Monorail and you have a brilliant, glowing Monorail. Each LED only uses 3 watts of energy. 32′ of Monorail glows brightly with just two generators. The system is fully dimmable and easily expandable. Compatible with all LBL 2-circuit elements. (This system is not a 2-circuit system.)
Replacement Socket Key Pretty and very easy to turn
One of the little knobs that switches the light on in our log cabin got gone. I took one from the house to replace it. (The log cabin is overnight cabin rental right now.) I swiped the knob from a lamp we don’t use very often. But, not very often is not never and I keep forgetting to pick up another knob. I know I’ve seen them in clear packaging near the light bulbs at Lowe’s. But I never remember unless I want to turn the light on. Continue reading →

Maxim Lighting Meteor Rose Gold and Crystal Vanity Lighting
Rose Gold has warm cast that is flattering. It feels new and fresh, but it is actually a classic.
Even pure gold is slightly reddish yellow in color. Anything other than 24 karate gold is mixed with something. Rose gold is gold mixed with copper. The more copper, the darker the red color of the gold. Red gold jewelry is up to 50% copper, 50% gold. Rose gold is 75% pure gold mixed with copper and silver. Continue reading →
