Cheery cherries

What's not to love about cherries.


I was in the Big Lots store the other day and found these fun cherry lights.






I like to string lights on the back patio next to the screened in porch. It's just enough light in the evening to add a little whimsy to the atmosphere.









Usually, I use clear christmas lights but they're hard to find in the middle of summer,
so I was thrilled to find these fun red cherry lights!







Little clusters of cherries hanging on a vine.





Whimsical and fun

and so pretty at night!







Enjoy your day!

Oh, That's another great idea!!
We have a hobby shop here that carries Christmas light all year long but NOTHING as pretty as those!

Love the cherry lights, never saw any like them before! Thanks for stopping by. I am wanting to write some poetry and paint but just cannot get motivated. I do minor alterations and have been busy altering shorts and jeans. Not enough hours in my day-ha! I love seeing Otis and Riley looking up at me whenever I visit your magical site! hugs, K

Like to see them at night.

They are absolutely adorable, Donna! I wonder if they were a Mary Engelbreit product at one time as she often used cherries in her illustrations?
