Spring Crafts

Last year I spent time enhancing our backyard area, by late August it was pretty decent.  But there was one last thing I really wanted to add.....outdoor lights.  Not hard to find or pricy right?!  There are lots of great options and either of these would be super.

There was just one thing standing in my way- we have no outdoor outlet.  So I was very excited, when shopping with my mom, to find battery operated paper lanterns. 


They were perfect but a bit plain and unsummery for my taste, I had to add my own personal touch. 












Cute, fast, cheap and perfectly coordinating with my outdoor decor.  


We also found a nice springy, gauzy green table runner.  It also needed a bit of 
Leigh-bellishment.

It was such a nice treat to spend a day shopping and crafting with my mom!

These are so cute!! I love them. I wish we had an outdoor space. We've been thinking about that as we consider moving (with baby on the way). Glad to see you two had a nice weekend!
