Solar-Powered Globe String Lights for Outdoor Entertaining

Solar-Powered Globe String Lights for Outdoor Entertaining

They are back!!!! Two years ago, we ordered five sets of these solar-powered globe string lights to criss-cross our patio. We were hosting Thanksgiving and the solar powered patio lights would add a canopy effect plus when combined with lots of candles, provide enough light even after sunset. We could not have been more pleased with the entire look and decided to keep the lights up year round. The fact that these globe string lights are solar-powered was absolutely essential to my purchase decision making process. We do not have an outdoor outlet nearby so we would have had to either spend lots of money on an electrician or run the lights under the french doors into the living room. Neither of those solutions were acceptable. Instead, we were able to attach the lights' solar panels to the roof. I won't lie, you can see them but they are not a distraction or an eyesore.  All was good. That is until about a month ago when a wind storm hit the patio. The tape I used to attach the lights to the wire infrastructure I had created, was old and cracked and basically gave out. The lights fell and that was that. Ever since, I have been searching for a comparable product. After weeks and weeks of research I decided to check once more, and there they were >> my solar-powered globe string lights are back on Plow & Hearth!!!!!

Fabulous Gifts for the Frog Lover!

I was just going through my inbox when an email from Plow & Earth caught my attention.  They are offering 15% off gifts for mom with code LSMOMPH.  I know, I know lots of merchants are offering great Mothers Day deals but Plow & Earth is one of the few companies whose products are perfect for my mother-in-law so I started to explore the site. Lo and behold, much to my delight, I found that Plow & Earth has a fabulous selection of delightful frogs engaged in activities from sipping coffee in the garden to canoeing.  Not exactly my mother-in-law's cup of tea but my dear friend Jean, is smiling from above.

This is for you Jean!

Party Hearty!
