We Heart the Hurricane

Inspired by her recent trip to the Muskosas and the enjoyment of "cottage living", here is Sarah Danniel's first Must-have Monday post: After a Labor Day long weekend spent on the Lake, I couldn't help but admire some of the beautiful ways cottagers display candles. Hurricane glass lamps are a perfect way to decoratively display all sorts of candles both indoors and outdoors. Set your own scene using a variety of shapes and sizes - the lamps can be filled with coloured stones, pebbles or even sand... set a candle down on top and you have a stunning use of light to create any mood. Not just for cottagers, bring a bit of the lake home with you! Try it out on your patio or balcony for an inviting evening glow. These lovely lamps are available in several sizes and can be found at a wide selection of home decor centres, including Restoration Hardware (www.restorationhardware.com) and Homesense (www.homesense.ca).
