I decided to make my own solar powered garden lights using things found at the Dollar Tree. I stumbled upon the cut glass jars in the cosmetic section and was happy to find the solar garden stakes fit on top perfectly. I though the pattern on the jars would give off pretty reflection on the trees. They remind me of vintage salt and pepper shakers.

As spring and summer get closer, we're dreaming up our ideal patio and garden. There are of course eco-friendly lanterns, lots of edible vegetation growing from our containers, and the sweet sound of a tiny babbling brook coming from a D-I-Y fountain.
