Weekend news..

I had a great weekend… wandered into Home Center on Friday to find this…

Gosh.. I have such a soft corner for lanterns.. I can’t tell you!! Even worst.. this was on sale for AED 2.50 (which is less than USD 1)… So what would you do if you were in my place??!!

Exactly!!! There were 10 on the rack.. and I picked them all… *smiles* And I asked the shop keeper for more… but they didn’t have any.. There was one green one.. So I just had to pick that up as well.. Why put someone else through the grief of finding this one piece and searching for more.. like I did??!! The girls and I … had to test them.. as soon as we got them home… So we put candles in them.. and hung them off the branches of the trees in our garden..

As the sunset they looks stunning…

Now.. on Saturday, I happened to be in another Home Center.. and saw the same things in Red, Green & Aqua… The red was gorgeous and they had only 4 pieces… So I simply had to buy them.. *smiles*

I'm enjoying the MM & MM & Outdoor Wednesday posts... This morning, I had a thought… I’d probably need more for Diwali & Christmas.. I should go back and buy a few of the Aqua ones as well… What do you think??
