I have been thinking about light recently. Bright sunlight, candlelight, dappled forest light, reflected light, they all have special, unique qualities.

The most magical light I have ever seen is the light cast from a Moroccan lantern.

The bits of light that spill from them create a romantic ambiance that cannot be rivaled.  Created by patient hands with tiny saws and metal punches, these lanterns are artwork that you can casually hang over the dining room table, and summon their magic with a flick of the switch.

 

They come in all shapes and sizes, from the tiny square table top lamps to the huge round lamps that look a bit like a gypsy disco ball.

Or, for the most ethereal quality, you can hang them outside with a candle and pretend a hundred fireflies have landed in your backyard.

Here’s to a little romance on your Tuesday,
