My Outdoor Escape and a Little Ambiance


Make Cupcake Liner Lights - gorgeous strung from trees!

When it’s cold, dark and dreary, I love escaping to my bathroom and taking long, hot soaks in the tub.

Bubbles, a good book and a glass of wine and I’m transported to a beach in Fiji.

Create outdoor ambiance with cupcake liner string lights!

Now that the weather is perfection, my favorite place to escape is my back yard.

An adirondack chair, a tall glass of lemonade, a great read and flowers creates the perfect place that takes me away better than Calgon ever could.

Make cupcake liner string lights - these look amazing strung from the trees!

To really set the mood and create a little outdoor room, I love stringing lights from the trees.

But who wants to settle for ordinary old lights when you can spice them up with cupcake liners.

Any cupcake liner will do but these frilly ones are even cuter!

Martha Stewart Baking Cups - love the frills

Love this cozy outdoor spot

Just poke the light right through the bottom of the cupcake liner and voila – instant ambiance …

and no calories!

The perfect outdoor place to relax - love the unique planter

Here’s to long summer days and a place to escape.
