Outdoor Accents

I needed to find cheap vodka shot glasses for a popsicle recipe I was making. I decided to give the Ross around the corner from our house a try because I didn't have enough time to drive to Ikea.  I found the shot glasses (9 for $6) and I also found these two lanterns.  

I'm so in love with them. I haven't bought any accent pieces in a long time because we still need to get large items, like outdoor furniture, but I couldn't pass these up for $5 a piece!  I mean, seriously this is the kind of thing I'll see in Sunset Magazine and desperately want but they'll generally come with a $60 price tag.   They're inspiring me to build some outdoor loungers with all the spare wood we have laying around.  

On another note I must mention the popsicle recipe that comes from one of my favorite food blogs,  Orangette.  My neighbor introduced me to Molly's book " A Homemade Life" and I've been in love with her recipes and writing ever since.  If you're into cooking check it out and if not this popsicle recipe is so delicious, easy and requires no cooking.

PS: Ross has some great, basic, good quality and very well priced bedding. But like all discount stores you have to look.

Oh no! I grew up in Florida and they and they had them there but they weren't as good as Marshal's on the east coast.
