Fairy lights

What is it about flirty little lights that brings such enchanting cheer to a space? Whatever the season, I love a little fairy light twinkle!

There are endless possibilities with fairy lights. Battery powered ones are particularly versatile – string them just about anywhere or wrap them around anything without any trailing wires.

  4. Oh yes yes yes. I do. I do believe in fairies. …and fairy lights!

  5. I need those Cox & Cox ones in my life! Love me a bit of fairy lights – I used to always have litte flower ones strung across the headboard of my bed and this post is reminding me to dig them out again.

    If there is one thing I am really looking forward to in my Christmas decorating is coming home in the evening and switching on the twinkly lights. Sigh. So cozy.

    As a side note, I am loving that mixed media work you have on your little shelf – is that something you created? It’s fab!

    Hope you are having a lovely week my dear xxx

    • That’s what I do every evening too, turn on the little lights and lamps and all things cosy… best thing about winter! Thank you for the lovely compliment on the mixed media piece… yes I created it. I was getting rid of some old magazines and found myself tearing out pictures and words that spoke ‘life’ to me, and the idea was planted. All the precision work required on that piece kept me out of trouble for a long time! 🙂 xxx

  6. oh meera, you’re taking my breath away. i cannot get enough of fairy lights, and if you saw our house (even during the day) today you would LAUGH!!!! like a dollhouse since i was so anxious about lighting for the holidays! i’ll share photos soon.
