February’s Favorite Things Friday!


I’m a little excited about this post. Just a teeeeeensy bit! Because my favorite thing this month is….

F*A*I*R*Y L*I*G*H*T*S!

I first bought these a little over a year ago, and I had so many ideas for them! I only bought one set, I wanted to make sure I liked them and they worked well before I committed to putting them everywhere. They are perfect!
The first set was delivered just as the holiday season was starting up, and I knew exactly what I wanted to do with them. Our house is a rental, the walls are white, and we aren’t allowed to paint. It’s also hard to hang anything on them because they’re plaster walls, you put a screw or a nail in that and it will just fall right out! But there is a small ledge about halfway up where the wood paneling ends. My stepdad had given us a ton of old glass milk bottles and they were just the right size. I hit up walmart for some white and gold silk poinsettias, and ended up with this beautiful set up!

Our furniture has moved a bit since then, (my husband has a chronic need to rearrange) and we ended up taking the whole thing down. But I had to find somewhere to put those pretty little lights! Just looking at them makes me smile, they’re just so tiny and delicate and warm!

They’re currently hanging around the frame of the full length mirror in our bedroom, giving it a glamorous, girly look that I really love.

I have seen quite a few uses of them that I love, including this canopy.

Someday, when I have the room for it, I would love a reading nook with fairy lights, fluffy pillows and cozy blankets!

What would you do with fairy lights like these? I’m always looking for new ideas!! 🙂
