Happy Pinterest Challenge Day! It seems like I've been waiting for this day all year when really it was only a couple of months ago that I completed the last challenge. You can see it here. First and foremost, let me thank the lovely ladies that put this together, Kate from Centsational Girl, Michelle of Ten June, Katie of Bower Power, and Sherry from Younghouselove.
Just because it's summer doesn't mean you can't have an inviting glow about your house. With all these things I've rounded up you can have the glow without the added heat, because trust me, in Texas, we don't need any extra heat. Adding a candle or lantern to a room just adds another layer of comfort and warmth, or bring votives and lanterns outside for a beautiful evening glow on your patio. By this time of the year, the fireplace industry has hit a slump due to lack of demand for heating devices, but here's the good news they start really dropping prices when summer approaches. It's kind of like buying bathing suits in the winter, or Christmas lights in the spring; you always find the best deals when things are in their off-season. Anyways I digress, instead of trying to add a glow with real wood and flame, you can add a visual glow with an electric fireplace and leave the actual heat setting off.
