Beachy outdoor lighting...to die for....Simone thanks ...The Bottom of the Ironing Basket

Beachy Outdoor Lighting ...to die for...

Helllllooo...is this over the top or what?   I just discovered Simone my new friend from London...she is the one to take credit for this spread...i couldn't resist posting this and featuring her blog ....The Bottom Of The Ironing Basket...great blog name huh?  wait til you see Simone's post... full of such great inspiration...thanks again Simone for allowing me to feature your photo spread...hope you are having fun in Paris .....je taime


this is so romantic...


and this is what to wear...

or this if you dare ...

so let's head to the beach tonite...

can you imagine going to a little soiree like this???

how bout a little bling for your outdoor living room... 

this is a great idea for a small little bungalow...

love the lanterns in the trees
and if you're in to modern...here's the ticket...

this captures the moment..doesn't it??

never forget those folding chairs...you never know
 when you're going to need them

ok here's where HOMEGOODS comes in .....
great place to find inexpensive lanterns

this isn't really the beach... but what the heck
 think palm trees lined with lights...

a little fuzzy image but great  idea you could make this with cut out 
white paper and tape around glass cylinders...


i have no idea where this is...Greece? ... but, as always i like to leave you 
with a photo that keeps you coming back for more...

I'm head over heels for everyone of those photos! I need to dust off my lighting fixtures and getting ready for the summer...now I'm itching for the constant warm weather after viewing those amazing escapes.

The last picture is Santorini. I lived in Greece for almost a year and did make it to Santorini and it looks exactly like all the pictures you've ever seen of it! Very beautiful.
Thanks for being my latest follower! I love your blog and I will be back often to visit!

Hugs,

I found your blog from Ciao Bella and am so glad I did!!! What a beautiful blog you have! Makes me want to whip up my Backporch Punch specialty drink and lay back in a comfy chaise with the ocean waves lapping by my feet!

That picture is Santorini! Ahhh... we went on a cruise there a few years ago. It is beyond magnificent! You can not even begin to imagine how blue the waters are. We sat on patio of a bar and had wine and feta just gazing out over the view like you have. You just can't beat that!

Have a lovely weekend!
