If you must have a motion sensor light, do NOT buy the double spots, I immediately removed them from my house when we took possession. They were literally everywhere!!

You can buy motion sensor lanterns, they are not the most beautiful and there isn’t a lot of selection, but better than the alternative.

There’s more on my Pinterest board here.

Hope you had a lovely Easter Weekend everyone! xo Maria

  1. Hi Maria, I’m sorry you’re not feeling well. Eat a left-over chocolate egg & get plenty of rest.
    We’ll muddle through till you feel better.

  2. At the front end of my career, decent exterior lighting was quite expensive.

    No excuses now, for bad/ugly/improperly scaled exterior lighting !

    Starting in the 80’s oversized exterior lights came into fashion. Rarely are they correct. Instead they scream, ‘ego’.

    Garden & Be Well, XO T

  3. Maria, Drink a lot of fluids, double up on your vita C and
    if you have some detox tea that may help. Sorry you are under the weather! When my husband and I got sick right after New Years eve, I thought we would never get well. Hope you don’t have that virus! We are health nuts and never seem to get sick. Take care of yourself.

    You are a remarkable gal to keep posting when you don’t feel well!

    • Yes. I hadn’t been sick since 2004 except once in 2007 and another time in 2012. I got a sinus infection as did my parents when we took my sister to the hospital. I have hot water and lemon every morning before eating. The few times I got sick, I’d run out of lemons. All three times I got the Z pack antibiotics and got better after 3 days. Take care of yourself.

  5. Beautiful examples. I have some great replacements for my exterior floods…I just need to put them up! What are “double spots”, btw? Never heard of that.

  6. Hey Little Sparkle, remember what my Mom-in-law used to say:”Go to bed until you feel better.”
    So pull those covers up and snuggle down!
    Sorry you’re sick……. Love you,
