Those little Italian Lights
Topic: Home environment

I sure hope you didn't pack away those little Italian lights we all use for Christmas holiday decorating. I love to use the white lights mixed with floral or vine garland around fireplaces during the "off season"--they make great mood lights and night lights and they are especially easy when you have them pre-set on a timer.

Outdoors, the Italian lights can be strung in ornamental trees--if you look around, you can find the lights with variable twinklers that "flicker".

Another idea is to string them around or in the base of a larger planter. Again, it's best to put them on a timer--maybe one or two sites on a dusk-to-dawn timer so when you look out onto your garden from inside the house at any point during the night, you are drawn to the drama.
