Summer Lovin'

Jun 29


We've been eating at least two meals a day outside since summer arrived. During the day we enjoy the breezy rustling of our years-old prototype bunting made for long-ago birthdays, but struggle a bit more trying to achieve mealtime atmospheric bliss after dark. So, you can imagine our excitement when we saw Apartment Therapy's review of the Best Outdoor String Lights 2010. The old Smith & Hawken beauties hanging from our grape arbor are wonderful for threading needles under a new moon and unbeatable for late night home surgery, but they don't do much for the summer dining vibe. The meandering bulbs in this photo achieve the super dreamy look we love, but the BEST part is that they're LED lights and will last far longer and use way less power than our old school incandescents. If you want to upgrade your summer nights and save some energy while you're at it, just remember to get warm white so you miss out on the brightness that sometimes accompanies a standard LED. They're not too hard to find, but you can check some out here. They even come in solar, too! When we reach critical mass with lights and bunting we'll post a photo of the renovated grape arbor all a-glow with twinkling magic lights and fluttering flags...

P.S. Please recycle your string lights! Check here, or here to learn how!

  • Absolutely nothing practical when compared with a put on the summer. Shorts may keep to your legs. Capri’s are so long and hot. Jeans are unimaginable on those hot, humid, sticky times of summer. You’ll find nothing like wearing a costume for comfort.

On the subject of LeBron, many fans assumed the Cavs would get new uniforms 2010 to coincide by using his revisit Cleveland. Unfortunately, it would not necessarily work in that way. It can take at least a year, plus much more often twenty-four, for an NBA uniform design to move from conception to the court. This is because so many of the league’s licensees need opportunity to manage to get their new merchandise straight into the retail pipeline — not necessarily jerseys, but also anything emblazoned when using the new logo. So pricier the Cavs to possess new uniforms prior to beginning of the 2016-17 season. Undoubtedly, that hasn’t stopped Uni Watch readers from devising their own design strategies for what sort of team will want to look.
