Fairy lights.....

I was destined to be a true lover of fairy lights.
If you could see my parents home at Christmas time you would understand why. I am not talking about "Griswald family style" ugly tacky fairy lights, I am talking about the white twinkly fairy lights that make you smile. Others may disagree but I believe, as does my passionate fairy light loving mother, that fairy lights should be out all year around. Why should a room just be pretty and twinkly at Christmas time?
Even as I write this post my fairy lights are on, twinkling above my kitchen sink, beckoning me to do the dishes - urgh. Admittedly this does not make me smile but that's beside the point people! :)

So mock me if you will, but put up some white fairy lights for your next dinner party or even better, in a tree in your garden and see what happens. Even the most dreary of character will be guaranteed to smile approvingly. If they don't, they should leave your house immediately- I am not joking, out the door! Chances are they don't approve of gorgeous tea light candles or second helpings of dessert either ;)

And so ends my first week of blogging :)
Have a great weekend.

  1. I love fairy lights too! I was actually lying on the trampoline the other day thinking how lovely it would be at night with some fairy lights around the net!

    1. Hey Rosa,
      Great idea! The kids would love it. Hope you are well x

  2. I have two sets of fairy lights (proper white twinkly ones!) near the back door waiting for a spare moment so that I can put them up in our conservatory and the little gazebo in the garden. I have been nagging my husband ever since the Chirstmas lights went down but think that the only way is to do it myself! I think you idea of having fairy lights in the kitchen is fantatsic as it would most definetly make washing up more enjoyable.
