And now, just for fun, here are three things around the web that are on the Corks & Cake wish list.
These items are available at Bourbon & Boots, a fun Southern-inspired handmade goods site.
These cool lights come 10 jars to a strand, on a 10-foot stainless steel wire, with a loop on each end for easy hang. You can choose between clear 1/2 pint OR full pint with silver colored lids. Or you can change the jar lids out with other standard mason jar mouth lids (antique blue or spray paint lids with a custom color.) The strand comes with a 10 bulb set of indoor/outdoor G-40 lights.
$45 for set of 2
Solar Mason Jar Lights are perfect to line the walk to your patio or garden. These are one quart Ball Mason Jars with a solar lid that powers the LED light. Charge in direct sunlight and then use as an adorable night light to illuminate items you add in the jar (think sea shells or super balls). Solar panel is water resistant. The easy-to-replace battery is included. Find replacement batteries most battery stores.
$25 for one
Mount a Wine Bottle Tiki Torch on a fence, deck, tree or your entry way to add some ambiance to your space. Citronella oil will help shoo away those pesky bugs. The extinguishing cap is attached by a chain to provide functionality and charm.
Each torch comes with a long-lasting wick, all necessary hardware (no worries, it’s easy to install), and directions for installation. Torches can be mounted using a philips head screwdriver, but a drill would make your life all the easier. Tiki fuel not included.
Dimensions: 11.5 inches high x 3.5 inches wide. Flame burns 5 inches away from mount.
And I bet if you are DIY handy or know someone who is, you could make any of these! Ready for summer entertaining?
