Fairy Lights

I love the idea of decorating with fairy lights.  They just add a bit of cheer and fun to a space.  I am hoping to add some to a mirror like the first image and some I’ve also found some similar outdoor ones at Target.  Hope you have a bright Monday!

    I love fairy lights – my girls have them wound around their bed heads and they look so fun at night. xv

    We have some lights like in the 2nd image around our pergola (over our deck). It’s so nice when we’re eating dinner outside to just have a little bit of lighting without having the glaring outside lights on.

    Love that mirror idea.

    I was just thinking about lights like these the other day and how I’d like to put some outside on our back porch once we move. :)

    I have never seen anyone put little lights on the inside of the house. I love it! I think I might do that in my dining room…very romantic.

    I love fairy lights! They look gorgeous on those mirrors. My daughter has a set of pink flower lights that a friend gifted her from London. So pretty, she uses them as her night light.

    Your right, fairy lights look great. I have some round my dresser in the dining room – with a few candles on aswell the room comes alive and looks so pretty. I want to get some round a headboard, when i get it. x

    My comment was lost on it’s way:
    I wish I’d get some fairy lights in my room when I have my own room (I share one with my sister!)

    I swear I will put fairy lights anywhere on anything that stays still for more than 1 minute.

    We strung some fairy lights in our kitchen for Christmas one year. It coincided with some electrical work so the fairy lights were our main source of lighting for several weeks. They made every night feel festive and sparkly – can’t wait to string some outside for summer!

    fairy lights are timeless and classic, aren’t they! The queen of fairy lights has to be Emma over at White and Wander, I think it may be the first thing she puts up when she sets up a new home somewhere, love it xx

    Just found your yummy blog and linked.

    I once had an apartment where I made a headboard with colorful twinkle lights. It was a great reading light and made the room quite ambient.

    Peace under fairy lights,

    I LOVE lights indoors. You might like this site: http://www.partylights.com. I was perusing the site for paper lanterns (which I also love), but they have lots of fun lights if you’re looking.

    Hope all is well!

    Love the lights! Aren’t they just “happy” little things? It IS the small things in life, isn’t it?
