String lights aren’t just for Christmas decorations or summer parties in our home. We have several sets of string lights that stay up year-round. Although we do not plug them in all the time, (mostly to avoid the bulbs burning out) it’s always nice to have them lit up when people come to visit. It adds a little extra glow to out house in the evening. Instead of lighting multiple scented candles, we use the twinkly lights and our wedding lanterns with LED tea lights create the illusion of candles without the danger of leaving a burning candle unattended. String lights are available during the summer at stores like Target. Several years ago, I found the lights that are in my office at Pier 1 Imports.
