To Light the Way

A few days ago on a trip to the Disabled American Veterans thrift store, I found this adorable lantern. I had been lusting over something similar I saw at World Market a while back. I snatched it up with the intention of putting it on the back porch.

I didn't have a hook back there that held it far enough away from the wall. That was untill, my mom remembered one in the basement that I had taken off of the kitchen wall when we moved in.

It worked like a charm!

The lantern was $2.50 and the hook came with the house.

Not bad at all.

Just wanted to share my gift of the thrift.
Hope you guys have a great weekend full of porch sittin' and fun projects!


  1. Thanks! I'll have to take some pictures of it in all of it's lighted glory sometime!

  2. love it, love it, LOVE it. totally great find! especially the last pic with the red house as a backdrop... pretty.

  3. Thanks Helene! There's nothing like the thrill of a good thrift! And that's actually my neighbor's garage! It's so cute, isn't it? We got so lucky to have a neighbor with a pretty garage since our wedding was in the backyard right next to it : )

  4. Oooh Pretty! Does that hold a candle?

    1. It does! Although I think I'm going to try one of those battery operated ones because it gets a little warm.
